Rebellion Clarifies Hint to Custom PS4 Backgrounds in Future Update: Just as in The Dark as We Are

on February 10, 2015 1:46 PM

Today we caught a possible hint in the Zombie Army Trilogy webpage that mentioned the possible inclusion of custom PS4 backgrounds in a future system upgrade. Unfortunately, though, whoever included that hint was just bringing up a reasonable guess, as  Rebellion Marketing & PR Coordinator Robbie Cooke told in a statement released to DualShockers.

Sorry Playstation gamers, I’m afraid we’re just as in the dark as you are about the next PS4 update! This is what we get for being organised!

When we were putting together our wishlist for we thought custom console themes would be a cool giveaway.

Lo-and-behold PS4 ‘custom themes’ came out but didn’t include the ability to add custom backgrounds (which we’d already been working on), so we probably do need to tweak the wording in the website to be a bit clearer.

At least, if they do announce custom backgrounds we’ll be the first dev to have them ready. Your move Sony!

Anyway, if you’d like some beautiful Xbox One, smartphone, desktop and (hopefully future-proof) PS4 backgrounds, AND some exclusive Zombie Army Trilogy MP3s, head to and sign up to the newsletter!

It was a good dream until it lasted, but we’re back to square one. Hopefully Sony will take the cue soon, and realize that many would indeed like to set custom backgrounds on their PS4.

While it’s true that it would probably cut a degree of business for the most low-quality static themes, which are basically just custom backgrounds we have to pay for, I’m quite sure PlayStation owners would appreciate. Yet, at least for now, we’re left in the dark.
