We Are OFK release date revealed to be August 18

Strap in your earphones gaymers, because indie pop band OFK and the team have announced the official release date of We Are OFK – an episodic, interactive (and dare we say queer) journey spanning over the course of 5 episodes – to be August 18.

We Are OFK will release its first two episodes on the August 18 date for both PS4, PS5, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Other episodes will release weekly, with each episode bringing a brand new single to accompany it from OFK and Sony Music Masterworks.

The full release date schedule for each We Are OFK episode is:

  • Episode 1 and 2 – August 18
  • Episode 3 – August 25
  • Episode 4 – September 1
  • Episode 5 – September 8

After all episodes release to the public, We Are OFK takes around 5-6 hours to complete.

In We Are OFK, players follow four friends living in the city of angels, aka Los Angeles, and trying their utter best to break into the music business… All while trying to survive and pay rent without losing the vision of their art. These four friends are Itsumi Saitō, voiced by Ally Maki (Toy Story 4Dear White People) as the authentic, kind, yet chaotic keyboardist, Carter Flores, voiced by Syhaya Aviel (The CircleVinyl), who provides visuals for the band, Jey Zhang, voiced by Fiona Rene (I Know What You Did Last SummerABC’s Stumptown), as OFK’s producer, and last but not least, Luca Le Fae, voiced by We Are OFK’s Creative Director Teddy Dief, as the band’s vocalist.

Alongside news of the release date of the new game, the music from the game will be put together for an official We Are OFK 2xLP vinyl, via iam8bit. The vinyl will include all of the OFK singles, as well as exclusive acoustic tracks. And, if you’re someone who likes a little bit of art with their music, you’ll also receive art prints from artist Nafisah Tung alongside the vinyl. The vinyl will retail for $31.99.
