Concord, Sony’s next big live-action video game, will apparently cost $40, according to a pre-order page found on the PlayStation store in Australia. This puts it in the same price range as Helldiverse 2 and seems to be another sign that Sony’s live service titles won’t all be free like Destiny 2.

Concordthe first game from Firewalk Studioswas first announced in 2023 during a major PlayStation showcase. This initial trailer didn’t show much, and many might have forgotten about it until State of play event of May 30, where the online shooter kicked off the whole show with a somewhat generic-looking cutscene and gameplay that didn’t wow the internet. During this event, we learned that it was a live-action 5v5 hero shooter set in a new sci-fi universe. And now we know that this new FPS from Sony will (probably) cost $40.

As spotted by Insider games June 5a PlayStation Store page in Australia went live and revealed the price of Concord basic edition and its fancy special edition. The standard edition will cost $60 AUD or around $40 USD. This version only includes Concord and nothing else. Meanwhile, the Digital Deluxe Edition costs $95 AUD ($60 USD) and includes early access to the game as well as a bunch of additional cosmetics and skins.


Concordscheduled to launch on August 23 on PC and PS5, appears to follow a similar playbook to Helldiverse 2, Sony’s huge success from earlier this year.

This online sci-fi co-op shooter also sold for $40 and also launched on PC and PS5. It seems Sony is hoping the lower price will entice more players to give a live shooter a chance. This also hopefully means that the game won’t be filled with a bunch of nonsense and gratuitous grinding, something Helldiverse has been largely avoided since launch.

Of course, I’ve already seen some people shocked that Sony charges money for Concord at all, which is not surprising considering online gaming reaction. It also appears, as revealed by different fleeas the real star of last week’s PlayStation event—AstroBot, launching later this year– will probably cost between $60 and $70. Keep in mind that none of these prices are yet verified by Sony or confirmed for the US versions of either game. Things could change.
