Seven Deadly Sins: Knights of Britannia also launches early 2018 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Knights of Britannia is currently being hyped as the first ever home console game based on the Seven Deadly Sins license with its prior gaming history being limited to a single a 3DS game released in 2015. Players will be able to explore the vast lands of Britannia with series-favourite characters Meliodas, Elizabeth and Hawk, battling foes both offline in single-player or online with friends.
