Developer Samurai Punk and publisher Surprise Attack Games have announced that Screencheat, a popular indie game on PC, will be released for Xbox One and Playstation 4. Screencheat, a split screen FPS wherein all of the players are completely invisible, originally came out in October 2014.
Screencheat is named after the practice of looking at your opponent’s screen in a split screen game to see where they are on the map. It’s usually considered cheating, but in this game it’s the only way you can find your opponents. Screencheat‘s bizarre weapons all kill in one hit, so you don’t have to keep track for too long. Split screen gameplay was born on consoles, so it makes sense that Screencheat is making this transition.
Samurai Punk also notes that the console version will contain all of the content that’s been added to the PC version since it launched. This includes new maps and weapons, but also new modes and features like AI bots and match types. Screencheat will support online multiplayer for up to 8 people, but appropriately for the game’s concept, it will support local multiplayer as well.
The console version of Screencheat will be available digitally on Xbox One and Playstation 4 on March 1st. It will cost $14.99.
