The PS5 game will be receiving a Special Edition release this Fall.


With the PlayStation 5 set to launch this November, Sony has revealed the lineup of games that fans will be able to play on launch day. Among the games coming to PS5 this fall is Sackboy: A Big Adventure. The return of one of PlayStation’s mascots, the new Sackboy game will see the cute little hero on yet another grand journey.

Posted to the PlayStation website, Sackboy: A Big Adventure will be getting a Special Edition when it releases this Fall. “Firstly, if you pre-order any edition, at a supporting retailer or through PlayStation Store you’ll get a copy of the digital comic, The Gathering Storm, in which you will discover the mysterious past of Scarlet, Sackboy’s mentor and Craftworld’s last remaining Knitted Knight,” the post reads. However, there’s even more that players will get when they pick up the game’s Special Edition.

  • A digital art book showcasing the beautiful, crafted worlds of Sackboy and the weird and wonderful creatures that inhabit them.
