Hotline Miami PS4 Release Date Announced

The PlayStation 4 release date for indie darling Hotline Miami has been revealed. The game will make its debut on Sony’s new system on August 19 in North America and August 20 in Europe.

Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker also detailed what’s new for this particular version of the game over on PlayStation Blog. “Gamers can now use DualShock 4′s touch pad to look around and lock on enemies, and actually shake the controller itself to perform execution moves when you have an enemy pinned on the ground,” he said. “And to take the violence to the next level, the sounds of those same execution moves are amplified through the speaker on the DualShock 4 itself.”

Parker also pointed out that Hotline Miami is still cross-buy, meaning that PlayStation 3 and Vita owners of the game will get this version for free.

A sequel to Hotline Miami is also in the works for PlayStation platforms, though no specific release date has been revealed yet.
