Disc Jam Launches for PC and PS4 March 7, 2017; Will Be Free for PlayStation Plus Subscribers
Last week, High Horse Entertainment’s fast-paced action-sports game Disc Jam received an open beta on PS4. Today, the developer announced the game is set to release both on PC and PS4 on March 7, 2017. Additionally, today, Sony announced the PlayStation Plus for March, revealing that Disc Jam is a part of the lineup, meaning if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber you can obtain the game for free.
For those that don’t know, Disc Jam is a fast-paced action-sports game that pits 2-4 players against each other in a unique combination of air hockey and tennis. It is obviously very Windjammers-inspired. While retrieving and throwing a glowing disc back and forth, players can unleash multiple abilities and deploy more strategic throws by bouncing the disc off the wall. The arcade-inspired title boasts a “zany” roster of characters, and can be played online or with a friend via splitscreen.
A price-point has not been revealed. Nor has a new trailer/video been released in quite some time, so if you want to check out some footage of the game, click here.
Personally — and this isn’t an original thought — I think Disc Jam has the potential to explode onto the scene just like Rocket League did when it launched back in 2015 and Sony made it a free game with plus. However, the key word here is potential, as what happened with Rocket League is incredibly hard to replicate, if even possible in the first place. But I think Disc Jam could do it. Will it? Well, probably not. But if it does, someone better send me a “called it” trophy.
