There’s also a PS5 Sackboy: A Big Adventure Special Edition that includes all the Digital Edition content plus a physical art book and a plushie. Unfortunately, this version is not coming to SA.
Sumo Digital shared a lengthy gameplay video for the upcoming title too. The trailer showcases some of the fantastic 3D platforming in addition to co-op gameplay and more. Design Director Ned Waterhouse claims the game runs at 60FPS and it was important to make this a key feature to improve the overall control and handle of the game.
Ned explains how A Big Adventure is brought to life with its set pieces and star of the show, Sackboy. Ned revealed that players can look forward to a robust single-player adventure as well as experience the game fully playable in co-op too. In addition, there are specific levels made just for co-op where players will have to work together or against each other to succeed.
