New and returning players will soon have access to a new character, new modes, and a variety of new Free and Premium cosmetic content. FOAMSTARS is now available as a February PlayStation® Plus monthly game and PlayStation Plus subscribers can redeem, download, and play the game at no extra cost until March 4, 2024.

Season Two “GROOVY DISCO” is the second season of FOAMSTARS and will be available to all players beginning March 9, 2024, at 1am GMT, until April 13, 2024, at 1am GMT.

Season Two updates and highlights include:

  • A New FOAMSTAR Slides into the Party: Unlock and compete with the newest FOAMSTAR, “Coiff Guy“, teased in the Happy FriYAY Party event from Season One Starry Pop. “Coiff Guy” can be acquired by all players for free as a Tier 31 reward for the Season Pass or can be obtained immediately by purchasing the Premium Pass.
  • More FOAMSTAR Missions: Missions 4-6 have been added to FOAMSTAR Missions. Experience even more of the individual stories of the FOAMSTARS, learning more about their backgrounds and how to play as each character in the process and go head-to-head in a boss battle against “Dark Ramzey” in Mission 6.

The season will also feature the following limited-timed events:

  • Ranked Party: Rise in the FOAMSTARS ranks by competing in two limited-time seasonal events, the solo player-based Ranked Party Lonestar and team-based Ranked Party Tribe-Vibe. There are seven ranks to progress though – Bronze Star, Silver Star, Gold Star, Platinum Star, Diamond Star, Superstar and Party Legend. Earning enough Rank Points allows players to take part in the Rank-Up Trials.
  • Extreme Party: Challenge players in two special themed modes; the All Coiff Guy Party – where every player team competes to chill opponent teams as Coiff Guy, and the Super Duel Party, where players battle 1-on-1!
  • Happy FriYAY Party: A weekend-only party event with no winners or losers, just the opportunity to try-out next season’s FOAMSTAR.
