Season One Starry Pop

FOAMSTARS kicks off with Season 1, “Starry Pop”, a content-packed foam party that features the following events:

  • Ranked Party: Rise in the FOAMSTARS ranks by competing in two limited-time seasonal events, the solo player-based Ranked Party Lonestar and team-based Ranked Party Tribe-Vibe.
  • Extreme Party: Challenge players in two special themed modes; the All Mel T Party – where every player battles it out as Mel T, and the Invisible Party, where everyone is invisible.
  • Happy FriYAY Party: A weekend-only party event with no winners or losers, just the opportunity to try-out next season’s FOAMSTAR, Coiff Guy.


FOAMSTARS will receive free themed seasonal updates over the span of one year. A season lasts approximately five weeks and brings a new character and a selection of maps, events, and cosmetics. Each season includes a new Season Pass, testing players to progress through the tiers by earning experience points (XP) through gameplay such as battles, missions, and challenges to unlock various rewards. All players will immediately gain access to the new modes and maps to ensure they are always part of the FOAMSTARS party, while also having the opportunity to unlock the new characters by progressing through ranks and achieving challenges. A Premium Season Pass is available for purchase at £4.99, which allows players to immediately unlock new Season Pass characters and earn additional season-specific cosmetics.

FOAMSTARS will be available to purchase from March 5, 2024, via the PlayStation® Store, and requires a PlayStation Plus subscription.
