What kinda game is soap?
Foamstars doesn't deserve the hate. Hand-waving comparisons to Nintendo's Splatoon are shallow; beyond both games featuring weaponry that fires something other than bullets, they're two quite different experiences. Square Enix's new multiplayer game is more of a hero shooter than anything else, and while its launch content...
Murder on the dance floor
Foamstars, the not-as-bad-as-everyone-would-have-you-believe multiplayer shooter from Square Enix, is soon to enter its second season. Starting on 8th March, season two is titled Groovy Disco, and it brings with it a bunch of treats, most notably a brand new playable character. Coiff Guy is his name, and you can see some...
Just 12 Trophies to unlock
Foamstars will be available for all PS Plus Essential members later today, but the online foam game won't be rewarding you with a Platinum Trophy once you've earned 100 per cent completion. Just like the upcoming Tomb Raider I-III PS5, PS4 remasters, Foamstars has chosen not to bother with the top gong in Sony's Trophy...
Plus or minus?
Yep, we're into the second month of 2024 already, and the beginning of a new month can only mean one thing in the PlayStation Nation: new PS Plus Essential games are incoming. So what's on February's menu? Well, at first glance, it's a rather solid trio of PS5 and PS4 titles. For starters, we've got the all-new Foamstars, which is...
Better get some bubbly ready
Suddsy shooter Foamstars got a moment in the spotlight at Sony's State of Play showcase, showing off a new trailer previewing the game's first season, called Starry Pop. Skins, characters, maps, and more are coming to the competitive service game later in the month, and the base game launches imminently on PS5 and PS4 on...
Bound to bubble up eventually
Squeaky-clean PlayStation exclusive Foamstars arrives on PlayStation February 6th as a PS Plus Essential offering, and making good on its earlier threats, publisher Square Enix confirmed the game will feature AI-generated art. This is in keeping with the
Costs $29.99 on its own
Square Enix has today revealed its online foam battling game Foamstars will launch for PS5, PS4 on 6th February 2024, and it'll be available on PS Plus Essential from day one. The game will release straight into Sony's base subscription tier, and will cost $29.99 once it's rotated out for another title in early March. Check...
Playable for the weekend
As previously announced during Sony's recent State of Play livestream, Square Enix's online battler Foamstars is getting an open beta, and it's available now on PS5. You can play the Happy Bath Survival and Smash the Star modes from now until 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, with eight characters up for selection. Your progress won't...
Turns out we didn't dream it, and Square Enix really is making a multiplayer shooter about foam. Yes, Foamstars is happening, and all jokes aside, it was pretty fun when we went hands on earlier this year. Soon, a lot more people will get the chance to check it out, as an open beta test is heading our way very soon. While the game is...
If the Internet is already dead set on writing Foamstars off completely, then it'll be red in the face come PS5, PS4 launch day. Despite the comparisons it's attracting, this isn't really a Splatoon rip-off, and most important of all: it is really quite enjoyable to play. We had the chance to compete in multiple local matches at...
The sincerest form of flattery
Announced during today's admittedly tepid PlayStation Showcase is Foamstars, a fresh new 4v4 party clearly taking more than a couple of pages from Nintendo's immensely popular Splatoon franchise. Perhaps not the freshest take, but these characters certainly look like they might smell better than the Squid Kids, that's...
Let the bubbles fly!
