Ouya’s killer app Towerfall already announced its decision to go non-exclusive and head to the PC, though no release date had been set. Matt Thorson announced today however that Towerfall would join PS4’s already impressive indie line-up.
Towerfall Ascension as this new release is known, will feature a couple of things previously absent from the Ouya version. For one, there will be co-op questing, new power-ups, and 50 new multi-player levels.
For those who haven’t had a chance to play it, Towerfall is an incredibly addictive multiplayer archery arena shooter with a bit of a retro vibe. The game has fantastic couch co-op and is, without a doubt, a must play.
Sony has done an exceptional job this year proving that they are indie friendly, even including indie developers Jonathan Blow and Double Fine in their announcement and launch events. This addition to the PS4 library is certainly welcome.
Right now the reveal only states that Towerfall: Ascension will be coming to PC and PS4 in early 2014. On his Twitter, Thorson stated that: “Ascension will also come to Ouya 3 months later, as a free update :)”
