Uproar is a frantic and fun third-person shooter exclusive to PlayStation Home. We’ve pulled out all the stops to bring you an experience unlike anything seen on the platform before. The controls and gameplay will be instantly familiar to anyone who has played a third-person shooter before, however, there are some interesting tweaks to spice up the gameplay and keep it feeling fresh. We think you and your friends will have a lot of fun battling it out in the Uproar Arena!
Pick your side
You can choose to fight for either the Outlaws or the Swyfts – Uproar’s two opposing gangs – as they battle for respect within the Uproar Arena. Each gang has its own unique set of clothing available to wear in-game and out, as well as a set of gang booths in the Uproar Lobby to hang out in with your fellow gang members. Be sure to let your rival gang know what you think of them with the full range of taunts available for use within the Arena!
Uproar could turn up in any Home Space at any time, offering a brand new selection of maps to take the fight to. The first space to feature Uproar will be the Action District. You’ll be able to experience the Action District in ways you never could before, by clambering over rooftops and jumping into the previously unreachable car park. The Uproar Arena itself is also a great location to shoot your friends in!
Full avatar customisation
With its intuitive inventory system, Uproar presents a wealth of customisation options to explore, allowing you to play according to your own style. Equip a primary weapon, secondary weapon, melee weapon, Serum, taunt and gang representative clothing to boot, then head out onto the battlefield!
The innovative inventory system allows you to preview, purchase, rent, compare and gift everything all in one convenient screen. It’s simple to pick the right equipment and looks for your avatar, and even allows you to do it mid-battle if your strategy needs a change.
The rental system is great for trying out different weapons before committing to a purchase. The speed and ease with which this inventory can be used helps keep the battles fast paced, while still allowing you full customisation options at any point in the game.
Play for free!
Every single weapon and Serum available within Uproar can be unlocked for free through the use of unlock keys, which you obtain by simply levelling up your avatar. On entering the game every new gang initiate will be given the free starter pack, containing the Commando Rifle, Big Jonesy Pistol, Baseball Bat (complete with nails), Super Strength Serum, “Come at me bro” taunt and the standard issue set of initiate clothing. These are a great set of tools to get you started in the Arena, but be sure to try out everything the game has to offer via the inventory screen.
Serums are a fantastic addition to Uproar that really enhance both the gameplay and your avatar. Drinking a Serum will give you a short-term speed, strength or health boost, and these can all be accessed by just playing the game and levelling up!
