The Warriors, Rockstar's brawler from PS2 and Xbox, is out now on PS4

One of Rockstar's relatively lesser-known titles gets re-released on Sony's modern platform.


If you missed The Warriors 11 years ago, you can grab it for PS4 for £11.99. (US and Australian prices are not available as of this writing.)

Rockstar originally released The Warriors, a brawler based on the 1979 film of the same name, in 2005 for PS2 and Xbox. It was re-released on PS3 a few years ago in 2013. Like that version, this is a re-release, as opposed to a remaster or a remake—and, yes, there are major differences between the three. In this case, The Warriors up-renders to 1080p, and you'll unlock Trophies as you play.

Rockstar also rolled in other contemporary trimmings like Remote Play and Second Screen support if you want to read Warriors' manual on your PSP or PS Vita.
