Play dirty in split-screen FPS Screencheat, out 1st March on PS4

Samurai Punk’s frenetic party game doesn’t reward playing fair…

Hi everyone! I’m Nicholas McDonnell from Samurai Punk and I’d just like to say thanks to everyone who came by and checked out the PlayStation 4 version Screencheat at PAX Prime and PSX. It was great to meet everyone!

We’re excited to announce that Screencheat will be coming to PlayStation 4 on the 1st March 2016!

If you haven’t heard of Screencheat yet, it’s a split screen FPS that centres around the conceit of screen cheating/peeping/looking (looking at the screens of other players to locate their position). In Screencheat all players are invisible, turning this controversial tactic into the core mechanic of the game.


Although the initial version of the game launched on PC at the end of 2014, the PlayStation 4 version of Screencheat will launch with all the work we’ve done over the past year to build on the core experience and make it the best local/online multiplayer game for you and your friends.

This includes all the new maps, weapons, modes, mutators and granular customisation options, eight player support and solo training challenges. The most recent additions to the game’s roster of features include AI bots which can join you in games locally and online. Along with a new map Museum II. Evoking the feel of the first map, Museum, it takes what was great for new players but extends its tactical depth for experts.


You will be able to play all of this with up to four players locally on the couch, or up to eight with a mix of couch and online players via either matchmaking or private games. Additionally, part of our work has been adding a wide range of languages including English, French, German, Russian, Dutch and Portuguese. We’ve also just partnered with H2 and Playism to localise the game into Japanese, Simplified Chinese and Korean and bring the game to Sony Asia and Japan regions around the same time as Europe and America.

We can’t wait to get Screencheat out to everyone in March so lock in the date, grab your friends, and get ready for a party.

Yep, that’s been a core feature of the game since the beginning.

I have had this on PC for a long time, and damn are you guys in for a treat.
