Sea Of Stars Joins PlayStation Plus At Launch, Demo Available Now

Sea of Stars made waves earlier this month with the announcement it will be releasing day-and-date on Xbox’s Game Pass subscription service. However, in a rare move, PlayStation’s PlayStation Plus membership will also be the home to Sabotage Studio’s upcoming RPG, allowing those who have bought into Sony’s or Microsoft’s respective ecosystems to download and play Sea of Stars when it launches.

Because Sea of Stars will join the PlayStation Game Catalog, only some PS Plus subscribers can access the game. Those holding Extra or Premium memberships can reap the benefits of the Game Catalog, and, unfortunately, anyone with PS Plus Essential will either have to upgrade their membership or purchase Sea of Stars for its retail price of $34.99.

With the PlayStation Plus announcement, Sabotage has prepared the Sea of Stars demo on PS4 and PS5 for release today. It may or may not be the same demo that’s been available on other platforms (we were not able to confirm at this time), but here’s an excerpt from this morning’s PlayStation Blog post describing what people can expect to play in the PlayStation download the demo:

The demo features areas that will be part of the final game, but we made sure to pick a slice that did not reveal any major spoilers from the main story. It is designed to give a hint of context but mostly showcases some gameplay systems and mechanics around dungeon crawling and combat. It aims to provide a sense of the tone and vibe without giving away major points of the journey.

If you’re interested in Sabotage’s follow-up to The Messenger, there is now a way to try out Sea of Stars on every platform it will launch on. The full game lands on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC August 29.

  1. Free? Or pay for the portable Switch version? Both?
