Sony is getting another PlayStation exclusive to PC. Sackboy: A Big Adventure is developed to release on PC on October 27th, according to a trailer broadcasted early on Sony’s PlayStation Latin America YouTube account.
Spotted by Nibel on Twitter, the trailer demonstrates the PC port of Sackboy: A Big Adventure will be full of improvements.
4K and 120fps support are listed, alongside support for Nvidia’s DLSS, ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio monitors, and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR).
These are the best headways to Sackboy: A Big Adventure, following a resolution and visuals expand on the PS5 version. Sackboy: A Big Adventure is the latest in a growing brood of PlayStation-exclusive games on PC.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered ventured on PC last month, after Days Gone, Horizon Zero Dawn, and God of War appeared in recent years. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is also pitching on PC on October 19th, with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales coming on PC at some point this autumn.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a forum game. Unlike earlier LittleBigPlanet entries with 2.5D platforming, it features a spectrum of perspectives and 3D movement. Players control Sackboy on world maps, giving access to many platforming levels and bonus content.
As Sackboy satisfies each stage, new ones unlock, letting him progress further. All levels contain collectible objects named Dreamer Orbs, which must be managed en-masse to drive to the end of the game.
Sackboy’s move set is significantly expanded from previous entries, and players can now nosedive, slap at will, pick up objects, roll around, and flutter jump, to name a few. In addition, moves can be chained together to construct combos that allow skilled players to travel greater distances. Finally, each level in the game employs a series of interactable objects that need at least one of Sackboy’s moves to progress.
Sackboy also has entry to multiple stages where he can use new powerups. For example, the Grappling Hook, now named the Clawstring, returns from LittleBigPlanet 2, letting Sackboy grab onto the object from afar; the Whirltool is a boomerang-like device that can be tossed to defeat enemies and break things. Finally, the Plasma Pumps allow Sackboy to drift in the air and fire energy blasts.
Sony has been increasingly concentrating on PlayStation PC ports and desires around half of its games to be on PC and mobile by 2025. Sony even began using a PlayStation PC title last year alongside obtaining a PC port developer.
The announcement of Sackboy: A Big Adventure on PC comes just a day after a PC version of the Returnal settings menu leaked. Sony confirmed its authenticity by copyright striking the video on YouTube, but the settings video showed support for ray-traced shadows and reflections and Nvidia’s DLSS.
Sony might also be working on its PlayStation PC launcher, as references to it were realized in the recent getaway of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC.
