Looking for a modern day take on the competitive arena bomb thrower? Blast Zone! Tournament is on its way and we now have a confirmed Xbox One, PS4 and PC release date.
Edit: We have now heard that Victory Lap Games will be delaying the release of Blast Zone! Tournament on Xbox One. No further release date has been revealed as yet.
Announced last year and currently running on PC Early Access – with the game free to download until January 16th 2019 – we will be finding Blast Zone! Tournament getting ready to drop bombs with a full release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come February 28th 2019.
Expanding on the fun found in Blast Zone!, Blast Zone! Tournament will bring 32-player multiplayer opportunities enhanced by PS4 to PC and Xbox One to PC cross-play, 283 multiplayer maps, a story-driven single player campaign with no less than 240 challenges, and more than 10 billion cosmetic combinations and social features. To put the cherry on top, all this will be delivered in 4K HD at 60 FPS on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro.
You’ll find a number of modes available too, and Tournament will let you hop quickly into online matchmaking for 32-player battle royale fixes, team knockout, or free-for-all match types in a fast-paced, desperate scurry to blow each other into oblivion. Further to that, the chance to create custom games and compete solo or on teams to collect coins, protect your king, survive a zombie apocalypse or score the most kills, will all be in place. Dropping in some leaderboards will give rhyme and reason to all your hard work.
“Bomberman was ripe for esports before the term was coined,” said Chris Pfeiffer, co-founder, Victory Lap Games. “Matches crescendo to completion in just a few minutes and the gameplay is easy to learn but incredibly hard to master. With Blast Zone! Tournament, we’re applying the best parts of popular esports franchises to push the genre forward into the future.”
If you want to find out what Blast Zone! Tournament is all about prior to the full launch then you’ll find that it is currently available in Steam Early Access. Once that Feb 28th 2019 release date comes around, and we see the game arrive as a full launch title, we’ll be sure to let you know.
