March 15th isn’t a day when one would typically expect an announcement for PlayStation Plus – much like Microsoft and Games With Gold, Sony tends to keep its lineup firmly under lock and key until the month’s end – but PS Blog unwrapped a welcome surprise today: Drawn to Death, the über-stylish shooter from industry veteran David Jaffe and The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency, will headline April’s PS Plus lineup.
Now pegged for April 4th, PS Plus subscribers will be able to download the third-person shooter via the Instant Game Collection the moment it goes live, and Jaffe is hoping that the decision to launch Drawn to Death via Sony’s premium service – a tactic that evokes memories of Psyonix and Rocket League – will help garner interest and, ultimately, foster a community.
Per PS Blog, there’s also mention of five new features that have been added since the game’s testing rounds.
Sphinx Missions: Wake the mysterious Sphinx and see if you can solve her eight battle-focused riddles. For every riddle solved, a new weapon — or a new level — will be rewarded!
Character-centric Missions: Besides levelling up characters, players will also have the opportunity to work through 15 action-packed missions per each of the six launch characters. Earn costumes and rare Taunts as you work your way through your favorite characters. Master all of the character missions and you may come face to face with the Volcano God!
Mystery Boxes: Who doesn’t love Mystery Boxes?! The Drawn To Death Mystery Boxes are filled to the brim with amazing character taunts and insanely creative character skins. Get a free Mystery Box just by playing three matches online and then earn Mystery Boxes for every 150 kills you execute on the battlefield!
Climb the Tower: The Drawn To Death launch tower is based on the theme Dark Fairy Tales, and if you play in ranked mode, you’ll have a chance to reach the tower’s top, earning insane stickers for every floor you reach!
Insane Mystery Special Offer: I’m not at liberty to go into detail or spoil the surprise but let me just say this: “Destroy my enemies and my life… is yours!”
Drawn to Death will headline April’s PlayStation Plus lineup. There’s still time to nab March’s digital offerings, too, which include Media Molecule’s Tearaway Unfolded and the wonderfully addicting Disc Jam.
