Mercenary Kings is nearing its fourth birthday, but developer Tribute Games still has some more to offer the game's fans. The creators of the run-and-gun throwback are reissuing their game with a few extra goodies for the game's old platforms, while also bringing it to a few new audiences.

First announced near the end of January, Mercenary Kings Reloaded Edition was officially released on Tuesday. It's the original game with new weapons and crafting recipes, but also features two new playable characters and a new Steel Soldier Mission that puts players in control of a new mech suit. This should all be new and exciting for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation Vita owners, since Mercenary Kings is hitting their platform for the first time. As for PlayStation 4 and PC owners, they won't have to worry about paying for the same game a second time. Mercenary Kings Reloaded Edition is available to them as a free update if they already have the original game. And given that it was one of the first PlayStation Plus freebies, there are quite a few people who own the original game.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
