Mercenary Kings dev doesn't regret being a PlayStation Plus PS4 freebie

Metal Slug-inspired shoot-em-up Mercenary Kings launched on the PlayStation 4 earlier this month as a part of the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection. What that means is Plus subscribers were able to download the game from its first day of availability without paying a dime to developer Tribute Games, a decision the company says it doesn't regret.

"I'm happy we traded a bit of risk for a PS Plus deal," co-founder Jean-Francois Major told Gamasutra. "Maybe we could've done better on our own, but the PS Plus deal was a safe bet. We'll gamble a bit more on the next project!"

This game is fun and addictive. But it crashes too often. I stopped playing it, can't stand wasting 20 minutes on a gathering mission and then a crash send me back to the home menu. Fun, addictive and a cool retro style, but still uninstalled.

They patched it last week. It runs perfectly now.

This is a game that I didn't think I would enjoy at all, but I always seem to have a great time playing. It's hard as all hell, but man it gets addicting at times. I hope for only the best for Tribute Games in the future.

That's the beauty of psplus....I've played so many games I normally wouldn't have tried and been introduced to different developers projects which in turn got me interested in their next project. Psplus really is a fantastic service.
