Guess what? Berzerk Studio’s award-winning Just Shapes and Beats: Hardcore Edition is coming to PlayStation 4!

Just Shapes and Beats is an action rhythm game that was launched for PC and Nintendo Switch last year. Now, it’s finally making a PlayStation 4 debut. Berzerk Studio’s Mike Ducarme made an announcement on the PlayStation Blog, in which he wrote, “Hey dudes, I’m Mike from Berzerk and I’m super stoked to let ya’ll know that Just Shapes & Beats is finally coming to PS4 on May 10, so that’s like, in four days? Five if you count today? ANYWAY, much excite!”

The key features of the game were listed by Berzerk studios and they are as follows:

  • Music to your ears, and hands – You like music? So. Do. We. That’s why we have 35 hand crafted stages with licensed tracks from over 20 chiptune and EDM artists. Listen to the Soundtrack on Spotify.
  • Friends make everything better – Gather up your squad and play up to 4 player co-op, drop-in drop-out, either all on your couch for a house party, or an online party! Don’t have/like your friends? Make new friends by playing a few quick online challenge runs. Let us pick your new buds for the next hours; strangers are just friends you haven’t met yet.
  • Something for everyone – The Story mode helps you learn the ropes with more accessible tracks and an optional casual gameplay mode. When you think you’re ready, Challenge Runs is where you get to prove yourself: get judged on your skills by playing through randomly picked tracks. Need some kind of training montage to get better? Rip your sleeves off and practice the tracks you’re struggling to master in the Playlist.
  • Paaartyyyyy – Let the game play in Party Mode and light up your social gatherings, + you can even have people playing those cool party stages while the music plays if they’re into that, because WE’VE THOUGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING. So yeah, go ahead and throw the most epic party of your life thanks to us—you’re welcome.

The Just Shapes and Beats: Hardcore Edition also introduces an all new Hardcore Mode. Ducarme described the mode saying, “We made our designer watch videos of things that anger him, like people cutting in line at the coffee shop because they know the staff, and dog owners not cleaning up behind their animal, and then let him loose in the wild. Every stage has been redesigned in some form or another to give you a whole new experience that will make even seasoned Souls-like players weep, longing for their mother’s warm embrace.”

Just Shapes and Beats: Hardcore Edition will be available in PlayStation 4 for $19.99 on May 10. Are you excited to test how hard this hardcore mode is? Let’s find out after the game is launched.
