Friendly folks

We may have had to twiddle our thumbs a little longer than anticipated for Hotline Miami 2, but you’ll be able to feed your murderous desires on the PlayStation 4 this month courtesy of a cross-buy version of the original title. Writing on the game’s official Twitter page, a spokesperson for the series explained that, as previously teased, the next-gen massacre will be totally free if you donned one of the title’s iconic masks on the PS3 or Vita.

Furthermore, the game will boast some new improvements on the DualShock 4, such as the ability to shake the pad to beat your victims to death. To be honest, we’ll probably stick with the original button bashing option – but those looking to get a little more physical while committing digital genocide should at least appreciate the option, right?
