Big City Stories, a free-to-play city builder from Hellfire Games will be launching on the PlayStation 4 on August 23. Jeff Posey, president and co-founder of Hellfire Games, stated on the PlayStation Blog that Big City Stories is a mix of, “some of our favorite genres: city-building, open-world, and MMO.”
The game will feature more customization than other city builders, letting the player choose an avatar with clothing and emotes. You can also drive vehicles in your city, take on stunt ramps or air jets, and some mini-games are included.
Your friends will be able to visit your city while you’re offline, and certain locations will be public spaces for meeting new people.
Big City Stories will launch on August 23, 2016 for the PlayStation 4 in the United States, though Posey states they will, “expand to other regions soon.”
