About Sackboy: A Big Adventure
The dastardly Vex (a near-mythical being born of chaos and fear, no less) kidnaps Sackboy’s friends and forces them to build his Topsy Turver.
This most deadly diabolical device will transform Craftworld from a fantastical land of pure imagination and innocent dreams… into a torrid, barren eyesore of nightmares. Ooh the fiend!
But legend tells of a prophecy from deep within the ancient order of the Knitted Knights, Craftworld’s legendary protectors. For only the brave, fearless, chivalrous and, yes, gallant can save the day in an almost too dramatic for words race against time stuffed with danger and peril. So much peril.
Set off alone or with your bravest friends on a whirlwind of capers across the snowiest mountains, the leafiest jungles, the wettest underwater realms and the, uh, spaciest of space colonies.
Take down Vex. Save the sack-folk. Save the day. It’s time to fulfil your destiny, Sackboy. From woolly wonderkid and hessian hero… rise our Knitted Knight
Is this the Death of PlayStation Exclusives?
It looks like Sony’s success with other previously “PlayStation exclusive” games is pivoting them into a more “Console Exclusive” instead. After all the PC version of “Sackboy” will be just after the PC version of the “Uncharted: Legacy Of Thieves Collection” which hits the platform on October 19th.
Also announced recently was a PC port of “Spider-Man: Miles Morales” which follows in the footsteps of “Marvel’s Spider-Man Remasted” and it’s likely we’ll see “Returnal”, “Ghosts of Tsushima” and “The Last of Us Part I and II” which are said to be in development.
As for “Sackboy: A Big Adventure” pre-orders the game will receive several costumes based on games like “Ghost of Tsushima,” “Days Gone,” “Death Stranding” and “Detroit Become Human”, all in the very typically cute fashion that only the Sackboy can deliver.
