After joining PlayStation Studios, the studio led by Jade Raymond (creator of Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs) unveils its first exclusive for PS5 on consoles.
If you like games as a service and extraction shooters, surely the PlayStation Showcase (you can read a complete summary here) last night left a good taste in your mouth. Megatons were also announced as Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater o Alan Wake 2.
Some time ago we told you about the signing of Jade Raymond, one of the creators of Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs, for PlayStation. This led to the creation of Haven Studios.
To this we must add the investment of Sony PlayStation in games as a service (by 2026 it will involve half of the company’s resources).
this is how it is born Fairgame$, the game that opened last night’s event, with a very spectacular presentation. This is a draw PvE shooter, based on robberies and heists.
Not much is known about the title, but it was confirmed yesterday that it is in development for PlayStation 5 and PC. Come on, what was it? one of the few first party titles at the PlayStation Showcase.
Haven Studios’ first-ever first-party game kicked off the PlayStation conference, providing spectacular shootouts in what appears to be a grand heist.
fairgame$ is Jade Raymond’s first PlayStation project, fulfilling Sony’s wishes in the games-as-a-service sector. No release date was specified, but we already know it will be coming out on both PS5 and PC.
As seen in the trailer, Fairgame$ is a cooperative multiplayer (PvE) shooter based on robberies of billionaires. It seems that the teams will consist of three players.
The aesthetic reminds us a lot of Fortnite, but with a particularity: the influence of Watch Dogs is one of its most interesting points.
To execute the theft (or extraction, wow), we can use different hacking techniquesas well as others undercover tactics outside of the pure and simple action. In that sense, we also recognize small touches of spying a la Splinter Cell.
Actually, Fairgame$ will also have its PvP component. According to leaks, in the last hours, three teams of three players each (that is, a maximum of 9 players), will compete to proceed with the extraction of the loot.
Not much else is known about the title. It’s practically impossible for it to see the light of day this year, so Fairgame$ probably won’t be ready until, at least the first quarter of 2024.
Fairgame$, the new game from Jade Raymond and Haven Studios, was not the only multiplayer shooter to be announced at the PlayStation Showcase. Other examples are Helldivers II, Foamstars or Marathon, the new from Bungie.
