Game developer Sumo Digital recently shared an important announcement about upcoming video game Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
The announcement touched on the online multiplayer aspect of the game. They have come to a difficult decision of delaying the full online multiplayer functionality. They want to ensure that this feature will be working perfectly when it comes out, which is why they need more time to improve on it.
Online multiplayer functionality will instead be coming via a patch by end of 2020. (Account for PSN and internet connection required.) This patch will also include:
Cross-generation multiplayer where PS4 and PS5 users can play together
Game save transfers from PS4 to PS5
On launch day you’ll still be able to enjoy Sackboy with your household in offline couch co-op party play. 2-4 player parties can play through the whole game including unmissable co-op only levels.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure will launch on November 12 for PS4 and PS5.
