Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Sumo Digital have released the introduction trailer and new details for Sackboy: A Big Adventure.

View the introduction trailer below:

Read the latest information on the game below:

When we kicked off this project our goal was simple: to give players an amazing, 3D, co-op adventure. The video above gives some insight into how we went about that, starting with Sackboy’s controls, crafting the worlds he explores, designing gameplay with loads of variety and layering on top anarchic, slapstick co-op multiplayer*.

We wanted every level in the game to feel unique and to continually surprise you with what comes next. In one stage you’ll be careening through a mountain pass on a runaway train, the next exploring a forgotten temple or facing off against a hostile baddie. We’ve mixed up the gameplay with a bunch of new power ups – including one which at one point quite literally turns the world on its head! And the game has an UN-BEL-IEV-ABLE soundtrack—there are moments where the music is sure to bring a smile to your face.

As you’ll know if you have played a Sackboy game before he is a BIG fan of fancy dress. There are more than 60 costumes to discover and you can easily mix and match pieces from different costumes to create your very own custom Sackboy. But we haven’t stopped there, we have also created a full emote system so you and your friends can hug, chest bump, dance and play air guitar together.

On the subject of co-op, this game is undoubtedly great in single player, but… throw some friends into the mix and it’s an absolute blast with so many laugh-out-loud moments and plenty of fun griefing opportunities!

Right, that’s enough of me waxing lyrical about the game.

Digital Deluxe Edition

Now I’d like to give you a sneak peek at our Digital Deluxe Edition, available on both PS4 and PS5, and the limited Special Edition only on PS4, both of which include some frankly delightful content to accompany the game.

Firstly, if you pre-order any edition, at a supporting retailer or through PlayStation Store you’ll get a copy of the digital comic, The Gathering Storm, in which you will discover the mysterious past of Scarlet, Sackboy’s mentor and Craftworld’s last remaining Knitted Knight.

If all-digital is your thing, then check out the Digital Deluxe Edition. If you pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition, as well as the digital comic, you’ll also receive:

  • A digital art book showcasing the beautiful, crafted worlds of Sackboy and the weird and wonderful creatures that inhabit them.
  • A digital soundtrack featuring an eclectic selection of tracks from the game.
  • Four Sackboy costumes of PlayStation icons which you can use to customize your Sackboy:
    • Jin from Ghost of Tsushima
    • Sam Porter Bridges form Death Stranding
    • Connor from Detroit: Become Human
    • Deacon St. John from Days Gone
  • Four Sackboy emotes based on each PlayStation icon mentioned above to show off to your friends.
  • 20 Sackboy avatars wearing different costumes from the game.

Finally, there’s the Special Edition which features all of the great stuff in the Digital Deluxe Edition plus a physical copy of the Art Book and this…

Sackboy: A Big Adventure will launch for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on November 12 in North America, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, and November 19 in Europe and the rest of the world.

i'm remaining cautious since it's sumo digital but this is looking pretty good so far. those costumes are adorable and the music is giving really jolly vibes like you would expect from LBP, hope this one actually turns out good after LBP3


Vendrom (on 30 September 2020)

LBP3 wasn't that bad in terms of story or new features. It was buggy yes, but it was a good game imo. That being said, I'll also wait and see how it goes. As you can guess, Sackboy is my fav character and would love to come back

This is looking good! I'm cautiously optimistic, but this may be the best LBP has looked to me since the first game! I have it preordered on ps5 and am hoping I don't find any reason to cancel that preorder.


Vendrom (on 30 September 2020)

I don't see it as an LBP game since there's no create/share feature. BUT it looks like a really promising platformer that could even reach the quality of R&C

sumo digital better step it up or the axe is coming! how did lbp3 fare on sales compared to 1/2? yeah 3 was a mess but hopefully they fix the mess with this!


hunter_alien (on 29 September 2020)

Il wait and see how the PS4 version turns out. If it's good I will buy it once it reaches 20$


pikashoe (on 29 September 2020)

Hmm, I don't have particularly high hopes for this due to the platforming being the weakest part of the older games. Can't imagine a lbp game completely focused on platforming will turn out particularly good.


FloatingWaffles (on 29 September 2020)

it was stated in the video that they recreated the controls from scratch and made sure they were responsive so the platforming probably won't be like the original games
