Sony’s previous attempt at a mobile game starring PlayStation characters was PS All-Stars Island, and had a heavy focus on their partnership with Coca-Cola to promote their Coke Zero brand, perhaps suffering due to that.
Their new app however, Before the Nexus, doesn’t seem to be promoting a brand but rather the upcoming Nexus game, so it’s all the better for it. It’s essentially a endless running game, which has the duo hopping between grind rails and collecting bolts while avoiding hazards. It actually sounds like it could be a bit of fun, if a bit too similar to PS All-Stars Island. It will also grant rewards in the form of Raritanium for the PS3 version of Nexus.
A new trailer – or rather, a weapon wheel – for Nexus has also been revealed, which is interactive and lets you see various weapons from the game in action.
