DETROIT - Feb. 28, 2019 - Blast Zone! Tournament, a modern take on competitive bomb-throwing arena games, brings frantic fun to PlayStation 4 and Steam today while Xbox One joins the fray in April.

Victory Lap Games, a team of AAA veterans with credits on Rachet & Clank 3 and Resistance: Fall of Man, takes aim at classic Bomberman-style gameplay and launches it into the future with highly polished, contemporary additions. Blast Zone! Tournament kicks things up a notch from the franchise's first and second iterations which were enjoyed by more than 1,000,000 players.

Thirty-two player battles await across 283 multiplayer maps, with PlayStation 4 to PC cross-play enabled. Online matchmaking unites combatants across 10 competitive modes, including Free-For-All, Team Deathmatch, Bomb Blast and more.

Triumph over the story-driven single-player campaign, which boasts 240 distinct challenges. Outfit bombers with more than 10 billion cosmetic combinations and challenge the very best to claim glory on the leaderboards.

Matches are brought to life via a vibrant cartoon style courtesy of John Wu, a former concept artist at Sony Computer Entertainment of America who worked on Ratchet & Clank, God of War III, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and Twisted Metal.

PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X versions of Blast Zone! Tournament boast 4K HD and 60 FPS for an even sweeter visual treat. The action reaches pulse-pounding heights with a best-in-class EDM soundtrack that complements the rapid pace and explosive kills perfectly.

"The advent of esports has opened new doors for classic gameplay to find the audience it's always deserved," said Chris Pfeiffer, co-founder of Victory Lap Games. "With Blast Zone! Tournament, we're reinvigorating the bomb-throwing genre with content and features ripe for a legacy of serious competition while keeping things accessible and fun for newcomers."

Blast Zone! Tournament is now available on PlayStation 4 and Steam for $19.99 USD. It supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Russian, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) and Turkish.
