Square Enix reveals Foamstars Season 1 content details

The bubbly 4v4 game arrives next week as part of the PlayStation Plus February Monthly Games lineup.

Hey everyone, Foamstars Producer Kosuke Okatani here. It’s only about a week left until the release of Foamstars and I can’t explain how excited we are. From February 6, you’ll be able to join the party and take on your rivals in fast-paced foam-filled multiplayer action. 

What’s more, it launches as a PlayStation Plus February Monthly Game, so anyone with an active PlayStation Plus subscription can get and play the game at no additional cost. Everyone is welcome! (Foamstars will become available for purchase for $29.99 for all PlayStation players from March 5).

During today’s State of Play, we revealed what to expect from Season 1 and Foamstars as a whole. In addition to ranked matches and seasonal limited-time content, characters, maps, and even additional game modes will be released over the span of a year. In this article, I’d like to introduce some of the things that will be added through updates, and give you some information about the first season, Starry Pop. 

Square Enix reveals Foamstars Season 1 content details

Ranked Party – Compete solo or with a team

In Foamstars, there are two types of ranked matches. You can compete solo in Ranked Party Lonestar or with a team in Ranked Party Tribe-Vibe, both of which will be available to play for during a specific period each season.

Ranked Party will be available every season and reaching the higher ranks will result in glorious in-game rewards such as player icons. 

Ranks are categorized into seven tiers: Bronze Star, Silver Star, Gold Star, Platinum Star, Diamond Star, Superstar, and Party Legend. Please try it out and aim to be a Party Legend.

The duck is adorned with a red bow tie and headphones. Atop its head is a cute grey quiff. Above this quacksome DJ is additional info in text form: ’51 days left’, a bar labelled ‘RP’ and an option to press triangle to view your ranking.

Extreme Party – Get groovy with crazy rules

These are limited-time events that will be held on two weekends every season. Players will be able to battle with different rules that change each season.

In Starry Pop, two modes will be available to play: the first, all players will use Mel T and the second, all players will be invisible. In the latter, players will need to find and take out the opposing team while all players are invisible! So how do you find each other? Foam fired will stick to you and opponents alike making this quite different from your typical game mode.

Happy Friyay Party – Test out next season’s Foamstar

The Happy Friyay Party will be held twice a month on the weekends. While celebrating the weekend, players will be able to test out the new Foamstar that will be released the following season. 

In Starry Pop, you’ll be able to try out Coiff Guy so please don’t forget to join the Happy Friyay Party.

Season Pass updates every season

The Season Pass which will be updated every season allows players to increase their tier by earning XP from playing the game. Rewards will be unlocked as player’s tiers increase. Players who purchase the paid Premium Pass will have immediate access to certain rewards.  

Style the Foamstars

We want everyone to customize the Foamstars to their preference, so we have prepared a wealth of cosmetic skins available to unlock for free or through purchase. There are also season-limited skins that are available to buy, so please check them out.

This is the Foamstars Customize screen for Soa. The character stands to the left, with multiple options for different outfits on the right. Soa’s sporting a Pastel Pink outfit. You can select an option to randomize her outfit at the start of a match. This time, Soa’s sporting a School Uniform outfit. This time, Soa’s sporting a Cheerleader outfit.

 Upcoming Season information for Foamstars

Foamstars will have content updates over a year-long span with seasons updating approximately every month.

There will be updates to the Season Pass, Ranked Party, Extreme Party, and new skins available every season.

We also plan to release new characters, maps, and a game mode depending on the season. 

For detailed information, please take a look at the roadmap below.

FOAMSTARS 2024 Season Roadmap: New Season every 5 weeks – following Season 1, which runs from February 6th through March 8th, FOAMSTARS will offer optional Premium Season Passes, free Ranked and Extreme Party modes, in addition to new music and in-store items! Newly added characters and maps are available to everyone at no extra cost. Details - Season 2 from March 9th with a new FOAMSTAR, over 20 new skins, new Extreme Party and updates to FOAMSTAR Missions. Season 3 will run from mid-April, Season 4 from mid-May, Season 5 from late-June and Season 6 follows that and onwards, with new content available for all. Please note that there may be some changes to season length and the update schedule.

I hope that everyone will be able to casually enjoy the variety of limited-time weekend events and lighter gameplay content that we are preparing.

I’m really looking forward to seeing you all at the Foamstars party from February 6.
