have today launched their ‘Dark Souls meets Tetris’ action roguelike, Loot River, on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. With the PlayStation debut of the game, Loot River is also getting a raft of updates across PlayStation, Xbox and PC. These include a brand new level editor allowing players to create, play and share custom levels with cross-platform support. 

In Loot River, players harness the power of the Relic to shift the ground beneath them. You will slide around on the floating pieces of ruined landscapes. These Tetris-like blocks can be slotted together to solve spatial exploration puzzles. They can also be employed creatively as a tool in combat, manipulating enemies and controlling the space. As players venture through these endless catacombs, they’ll encounter horrifying beasts, lost travelers, and epic bosses. 

You’ll also discover a wealth of new weapons, gear, spells and unholy knowledge. Swords that thrust you forward towards enemies; axes that shoot projectiles; spells; charms that imbue you with unique abilities. Combining these to create powerful and surprising synergies is crucial in helping you get further with each run.

Loot River PlayStation Launch & Updates

Along with the aforementioned new level editor, a number of quality-of-life updates are launching today for all formats. Players will see loading times have been decreased by more than 50%, improved frame rates and other general improvements. These updates add to improvements made since the game’s Xbox and PC launch, including the addition of leaderboards, Daily Runs, new enemies and items and an easy mode with animation canceling.

The PlayStation version of the game will also feature two unique additions. Haptic vibration support and the ability to jump into the Daily Run straight from the PlayStation system UI via the PlayStation Activities system.

“We’re really excited about bringing Loot River to PlayStation… and seeing what players do with our level editor across platforms,” said creative director Miro Straka. “Thank you to everyone who has supported the game so far and continues to do so as we’ve made improvements since the game’s original release. With this PlayStation release and the updates that will be joining it across every platform, Loot River will be better than ever.”
