Today, SQUARE ENIX® revealed further details on the seasonal content planned for its upcoming online 4v4 foam party shooter FOAMSTARS™. FOAMSTARS Season One “Starry Pop” was unveiled during the Sony Interactive Entertainment’s State of Play broadcast showcasing new limited-time seasonal events and season pass specific content and rewards.

Further, the FOAMSTARS 2024 Season Roadmap was also shared in a separate PlayStation Blog teasing additional characters, maps, and modes to be added to the game throughout the year.

“Starry Pop” is the first of many free seasons planned for the year ahead and will be available to all players from launch, beginning Tuesday, February 6, 2024, until Friday, March 8, 2024.

Season One highlights include:

  • 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. There are seven ranks to progress though – Bronze StarSilver StarGold StarPlatinum StarDiamond StarSuperstar and Party Legend. Earning enough Rank Points allows players to take part in the Rank-Up Trials.
  • 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. The first team to score ten chills on opponent players claims the victory.
  • 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.

In addition to “Starry Pop”, the unveiled content roadmap showed upcoming plans for Season Two to Season Six. A season lasts approximately five weeks and brings a selection of new characters, maps, events, and cosmetics. Each season includes a new Season Pass, testing players to progress through the ranks 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 $5.99, where players will immediately unlock new Season Pass characters and can earn additional season-specific cosmetics.
