We are pleased to announce that Kill Strain will be available on PS4 beginning Tuesday 12th July for PlayStation Plus subscribers and on 19th July for all PS4 owners.

Kill Strain is a PvP experience that pits three teams against one another under uniquely dynamic circumstances. Composed of two teams of four humans, and one team of one or two mutants; mutants have with the ability to turn their human combatants – resulting in the team sizes shifting as the match progresses.

Matches end when one of three end conditions are met:

  1. All humans turned
  2. Base destroyed (human or mutant)
  3. Strain takes over (time runs out)

With team based gameplay and individual-based scoring, the key for best results is to stay active. Throughout the match there are various ways to score points and at times helping teammates or enemies alike can be to your advantage.

Be sure to follow @KillStrainGame on Twitter to keep up to date with info on the game and/or visit for updates, info, questions or feedback.

And lastly on behalf of the entire development team, we would like to thank those who have joined us throughout the games development, those who came in for focus groups, played at some point in our Private Access stages, those who played during our Limited Access stages, and those who are still to join us. Kill Strain is a game that strives to be community driven and without the interest and support of all of you, we wouldn’t be where we are. We genuinely thank all of you who have tried Kill Strain to date and look welcome all who will try it in the future.
