Diving into FOAMSTARS with Square Enix at Summer Game Fest, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Of course, there are comparisons to Splatoon and plenty of visual similarities to Fortnite, so I really wasn’t sold when I first saw the trailer—and then I played it.
The premise is simple, in theory. Two teams of four shoot it out to become victorious. You aim to cover the field in as much of your team’s foam as possible, slowing the enemy players.
You can even go so far as to coordinate which character each player chooses. There are eight characters: Rave Breaker, The Baristador, Mel T, Pen Gwyn, Tonix, Agito, Soa, and Jet Justice.
However, Square Enix mentioned that plenty of modes are on the way. A single-player mode will be one of them. I hope that will allow for more time to test each character and determine which playstyle suits you best.
