London, August 12th 2014 - The wait is finally over! Bossa Studios is delighted to announce that the all new Anniversary Edition of the critically acclaimed Surgeon Simulator transplants its unique mix of medical malpractice onto PlayStation®4 in the US later today, available through PlayStation®Network, priced $12.99. Europe will join in the fun tomorrow afternoon, August 13th for £8.99 / €10.99.

Taking control of bungling amateur surgeon Nigel Burke, players have a plethora of pugilistic and pointy implements at their disposal as they attempt to cure their unconscious buddy, Bob, of his ills and ailments. In Surgeon Simulator : A&E, malpractice makes perfect!

The super-elite Anniversary Edition comes with the new eye and teeth operations, additional environments, stat tracking and fully functioning cups! From carrying out terrifying transplants in theatre, to surgical procedures in the hospital corridor, Surgeon Simulator : Anniversary Edition takes malpractice to the next level.

The new version of the game makes full use of the DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller’s six-axis sensor to give players a unique experience unlike anything else on PlayStation®4! Sofa based surgeons will also be able to utilise the controller’s new Share function, meaning that every punishing procedure can be uploaded via the PS4®’s streaming services, real-time.

Also, in a long-requested update, for the first time ever in Surgeon Simulator , players will be able to perform co-up surgeries, both locally and online! This new game mode will be arriving in an update VERY soon, so keep 'em peeled!
