Free DLC outfits up for grabs
Sackboy: A Big Adventure is unlike the LittleBigPlanet games in that there's no creation mode, but there are still some similarities. For example, the character's love of dressing up remains intact, as the new game features loads of new outfits for you to discover. However, did you know you can snag some more costumes...

No sack left behind
Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a key game in Sony's PlayStation 5 launch lineup, but it's also due for release on PS4. The LittleBigPlanet spin-off doubles down on being a tight-knit 3D platformer, and it supports up to four players in local or online co-op. It all sounds pretty good to us, and what little we've seen has been very...
Knitted Knight Trials
Sackboy: A Big Adventure is the darkhorse of the PlayStation 5 launch game line-up, and we're incredibly excited to get our hands on it alongside Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon's Souls.

Spinnin' a yarn
Crumpets! Just how good does Sackboy: A Big Adventure look? Sony’s been quietly building hype for this quaint co-op platformer for weeks now with a series of new trailers, but the title was arguably the star of
My, how you've sewn
PlayStation doesn't have a singular mascot, but Sackboy can be counted among the many iconic characters on Sony's platform.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure will be heading to both PlayStation 4 and PS5 this November.

The adorable mascot will mark his comeback with an all-new outing designed by Sumo Digital, and while it’s not necessarily a next-gen visual feast, this initial batch of assets reveals that the hero hasn’t shed his...

It can be found in the title's third chapter, perched upon an otherwise quite ordinary...
