Drawn To Death, the online third-person shooter/brawler that takes place inside the pages of a teenager’s notebook, will be free for all PS Plus subscribers when it launches on April 4th, and it will be free for the remainder of the month. The game, which was initially going to use a free-to-play model, will launch at the cost of $19.99 USD (Australian pricing has not been revealed yet).
David Jaffe, the game’s director over at The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency, made the announcement via the PlayStation blog, along with five new added features. You can read the PS blog announcement here.
Hey y’all, it’s Jaffe, game director over at The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency and I have a confession to make. For the past few months, whenever players would suggest that Drawn To Death would be a perfect fit as one of the free games with PlayStation Plus, I’d have to bite my tongue (and if you know me, you know that ain’t easy!)
All I could do was nod and say, “That’d be great. We’d love it, but no plans for that. Nice idea though!”
But behind the scenes we had been talking to the folks over at PS Plus . I wanted to find a way to invite all of you PS Plus members into this experience and give you a look at what really excites me about games these days. We’ve been working on Drawn To Death for nearly three years, and over time, it really has become this robust, highly competitive game – and we haven’t even talked about a lot of the new features … yet. Needless to so say, I thought you could all help us build an unbelievable community for the game.
I just couldn’t say anything.
We just couldn’t wait any longer to share the good news, so here – finally – loud and proud and excited as-all-get-out, allow me to announce that on 4th April Drawn To Death launches and PS Plus members get it for free!
I managed to play the game’s beta last year, and I was impressed with both the game’s art direction and just how fun it was to play. I look forward to playing the final product next month.
