The Baconing gets a tasty price and release date

Ever since it’s tantilisingly tasty announcement we have been waiting for this news, finally The Baconing; the third game in the DeathSpank series has had both release dates and platforms confirmed! The latest game in the stand-alone action-RPG from Hothead features new worlds, hilarious characters, and most importantly the return of our hero, DeathSpank.

The Baconing will see release on the Playstation Network first as part of the Playstation Network PLAY promotion which showcases four of the season’s hottest titles. If gamers pre-order from PLAY they will receive an additional co-operative character Roesha; a 70s inspired cop out for justice, and a Playstation Network theme. Incidentally, if you are a Playstation Plus subscriber, you will receive an automatic 20% off of every PLAY promotion purchase.

The Baconing comes a day later on Xbox Live Arcade, and via Steam for Windows PC and Mac, where you can currently pre-order with a discount of 20% if you do so before its release.

This will be the first game in the series that is released at launch simultaneously on all viable platforms, and Hothead Games promise that it will be their best game yet, which is a lot to say considering how solidly entertaining the previous DeathSpank games, and Swarm have been.

The Baconing sees release on the Playstation Network on August 30th, and August 31st for Xbox Live Arcade, Windows PC and Mac, and will cost £9.99, 1200 MSP points and currently £7.99 respectively.
