Mercenary Kings

Mercenary Kings will launch for PlayStation 4 on April 1 and March 25 on PC via Steam, developer Tribute Games announced.

In the side-scrolling shoot ‘em up, players will choose between Empress and King, two members of an elite squad known as the Mercenary Kings, who must rescue the brilliant Dr. James Neil from the forces of C.L.A.W. (Cyber Loyalist Active Weapons), and prevent them from using the Mandrake Formula to take over the world.

Players can play on their own, or via four-player online or online co-op. Throughout the game, you’ll gather over 300 gun parts and over 100 knives, which you can use to enhance and forge weapons.
