The PlayStation 4 indie market seems to be an ever-increasing line of PC games that have been out for a while and are now coming to console. Surgeon Simulator has joined the fray, and comes out on the PlayStation Network for the PS4, as an all new “Anniversary Edition”, priced at $12.99 on the US store today, and £8.99/€10.99 on the European store tomorrow.
For those who are new to the game, you are a surgeon, or essentially one arm of a surgeon that cannot hold onto a single toolwith any amount of precision whatsoever as you try to perform various surgeries, which leads to a plethora of would-be malpractice suits as you attempt to do things like kidney transplants.
The Anniversary Edition comes with new eye and teeth operations, additional environments, stat tracking, and boasts “fully functioning cups”.
This new version, exclusively for the PlayStation 4 version makes full use of the DualShock 4 controller’s six-axis sensor to give players a unique experience, and a free downloadable update coming on August 27th that for the first time ever incorporates co-op surgeries for both couch-based and online multiplayer gaming. With these two additions to the game, players should look forward to a different feel from many of the mechanics they’ve grown used to since the game came out in April 2013 on the PC.
