As announced back in November 2021, today is your final day to buy a digital copy of Jump Force from the PlayStation Store before it's gone forever. Bandai Namco is pulling the game from digital storefronts, meaning a physical copy will be your only option after today. For some reason, though, the fighting title is still full price on Sony's digital marketplace while it's being offered at a huge discount on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Jump Force will be removed from the PS Store, along with all DLC and premium currency, at the following times:
- PST: 5pm on 7th February 2022
- EST: 8pm on 7th February 2022
- GMT: 1am on 8th February 2022
- Japan: 10am on 8th February 2022
The game will remain playable both online and offline until the 24th and 25th August 2022, when the online servers will be switched off over the course of two days. You will then lose access to multiplayer lobbies and online events, clan functionality, notice and leaderboards, and ranked matches. After that, all you'll have left is any offline content and access to the DLC you previously bought.
Jump Force was never a good fighting game, but it's always a shame to see something go the way of the dodo. In our Jump Force PS4 review, we awarded the title a 5/10. "Thanks to a truly egregious art style and comically bad story presentation, this is an accessible and often fun crossover brawler let down by its disappointingly shoddy packaging. Ultimately, it's difficult not to feel as though all of these classic manga and anime properties deserve much better than Jump Force."
