Poncle has announced plans to release Vampire Survivors for PlayStation consoles, as well as new Contra-themed DLC for the game.

The base game and all its DLC packs will be available for PS4 and PS5 this summer, the studio said on Wednesday.

Vampire Survivors is a roguelike shoot ’em up which sees players choosing one of numerous characters, who then automatically attack as the player fights through waves of monsters with the aim being to survive for as long as possible.

The game was released for PC, Mac, Xbox consoles and mobile in 2022, before hitting Switch last year.

It was well received by critics, earnings it scores ranging from 86 to 95 on review aggregations site Metacritic.

Poncle has also revealed the latest Vampire Survivors DLC, Operation Guns. It will cost $2.49 / €2.49 / £1.99 when it’s released for all current platforms on May 9.

Vampire Survivors won Action Game of the Year at last year’s DICE Awards, as well as the Best Game and Best Design prizes at the BAFTA Games Awards.
