It’s been a while since we’ve seen a street basketball game appear on the market, but that’s going to change soon thanks to 3on3 Freestyle, an upcoming Free-to-Play game from publisher Joycity.
If you’ve never heard of Joycity or their Freestyle franchise, I wouldn’t blame you. The publisher has previously spent a lot of their time working on the PC. Now they’re setting their sights on the console market.
This time around they’re teaming up with Sony to bring the game to the PS4, which means Xbox fans are out of luck, at least for the time being. Joycity says the game is exclusive to the PS4, though it’s uncertain as to whether that exclusivity is timed or permanent.
If you were wondering what the game is like, they’ve released a very stylized trailer which you can check out up top. As you can probably infer from the name, 3on3 Freestyle will focus on 3v3 street games, though the game will also support 1v1 against AI or other players online.
The game also takes an interesting approach to gameplay, by offering different characters with their own skills and abilities at different positions which can be leveled up by gaining experience.
As for a release, Joycity is currently targeting a summer 2016 release for 3on3 Freestyle, though an exact date has yet to be announced.
