On 8th April 2020, Convoy Games’ hit indie-title will crash-land on PlayStation 4! Drive a convoy of futuristic, armored trucks through a barren wasteland and scavenge parts for your stranded spaceship through clever dialogue and tactical combat. Put your wits to the test against the dangerous factions of Omek Prime and risk losing everything …
At Convoy Games, we’ve always had the ambition to bring our hit indie-title to consoles. With the upcoming release, this is finally becoming a reality thanks to our partnership with Triangle Studios. As a small team, it’s quite difficult to release a game to more than one platform. Something that seems quite trivial can take months of work to accomplish. Fortunately, we were able to join the Triangle Studios team, and use their experience which made the whole transition much easier, allowing us to focus on making the Playstation version as good as it can be.
Even though many indie games make their way from PC to Playstation nowadays, this transition isn’t as obvious as you might think. There are hundreds of small details to think about, and of course since the original was playable with the mouse, we needed to make the game as enjoyable to play with the controller. On top of that, we made sure that we added fresh vehicles such as the Kyran and Shredder and their accompanying storylines, ensuring that the PlayStation version is the most enjoyable version of Convoy ever!
Hundreds of thousands of players have enjoyed Convoy on PC, now it’s your turn to explore the world of Convoy from the comfort of your couch!
For those of you who are new to Convoy: a tactical roguelike, the game is best described as a squad-based, tactical roguelike, where you travel with your crew of combat vehicles across a wasteland to find parts needed to repair your downed spaceship. During your journey, you will pick up radio signals from strangers of different factions in randomized scenarios.
Depending on the choices that you make as a player, these encounters can lead to tactical combat, dialogue or chance based role-play. Whatever choice you end up making, you need to keep your Convoy and its cargo safe from raiders, warriors and other threats and use your resources wisely in upgrading and customizing your vehicles.
Combat plays out in real time in the form of high-speed chases, where positioning your vehicles and using their abilities is imperative to survival.
In the world of Convoy, three factions compete for control of the planet. Your actions may distort the balance, making you an enemy to everyone. As each faction grows in strength, it’s up to you to keep up. And if knowing that a wrong move could be the end of you isn’t enough: Death is permanent. Stay vigilant.
Convoy: A Tactical Roguelike will be available on PS4 on 8th April.
