Splatoon 3, eat your heart out. In today’s State of Play, Sony announced a Foamstars Open Beta Party, available worldwide on PS5. The beta commences later this month.

First thing’s first, here’s the trailer for the beta:

Here’s what players can expect from the beta according to a press release from Square Enix:

Foamstars Open Beta Party Details:

In the upcoming “FOAMSTARS OPEN BETA PARTY”, players will experience two different 4-v-4 game modes and choose from eight diverse and vibrant characters, each with their own play style, specialist weapons, and unique game-changing skills. With foam as each challenger’s weapon of choice, players must master the game’s foam traversal and construction mechanics to build, block and overpower their competitors to achieve victory.

  • Playable Characters – Soa, ΔGITO, Tonix, Jet Justice, Mel T, The Baristador, Rave Breaker, and Pen Gwyn.
  • Game Modes – The two game modes are:
    • “SMASH THE STAR”: Compete in a frantic battle where the winning strategy changes as the match progresses. In “SMASH THE STAR”, each team must battle it out to secure seven knockouts on the opposing team. Once this is achieved, the best player is chosen to be the “Star Player” and becomes the key to victory! To win the match, teams must defeat the opposing team’s “Star Player” while also protecting their own!
    • “HAPPY BATH SURVIVAL”: A battle between two teams comprised of two “infield” players and two “outfield” players. Victory is earned by defeating both opponent “infield” players, while “outfield” players support and provide defense for their teammates.

The beta will run from September 29 at 6pm PDT/9pm EDT and September 30 at 9am HKT to October 2 at 12am PDT/3am EDT/3pm HKT. It will be available to all PS5 players with a simple download from the PlayStation Store.

Every player who takes part in the open beta will also receive an exclusive cosmetic item for the character Soa upon downloading the full game at launch.
