The staying 3 episodes will get here on a weekly basis.
We Are OFK follows a virtual four-piece indie band called, oddly enough, OFK. It’s billed as an interactive musical biopic that OFK is making about its own origins. As Dief composed on the PlayStation Blog, “What would it appear like to develop virtual artists who enjoy efficiencies of [pop stars] on their laptop computers in bed, and understand they’re most likely never ever going to play an arena show? We wished to inform that story– how tough it is to make music, to compose even one tune, to tape-record another video to publish online and hope somebody leaves a good remark.”
The video game costs $20 In addition to each episode, OFK and Sony Music Masterworks will launch a brand-new single. A vinyl bundle of the songs will be readily available from iam8bit for $32 A limited-edition physical variation of We Are OFK is readily available to pre-order for PS5 and Switch too.
