Zen Studios, has today revealed some new tidbits regarding the multiplayer mode for the upcoming XBLA title CastleStorm.
The game is a 2D real-time strategy physics-based destruction game that’s packed with co-op and multiplayer modes in local split screen or online multiplayer. Leveling up is also offered in single-player and multiplayer, with both modes having their own experience points and level-ups.
Here are the details on each mode revealed today:
1 vs. 1 split-screen mode: simply try and beat your opponent by bashing in their castle. Choose your side (the noble Knights or the ragtag Vikings) and then choose your arsenal of weapons wisely. Face off, castle to castle and the first to completely demolish his or her opponent’s castle wins!
Survival Co-op: Two players team up to fight off waves of enemies together! Assign one player to control the ballista and the other to control ground forces. Good timing and great aim are essential in Survival Co-op as friendly fire could be harmful to your own troops on the ground.
Last Stand Co-op mode: Would you rather ditch the castle and do some hand-to-hand combat out in the battlefield? Check out the Last Stand Co-op mode where both players control a hero and battle wave after wave of enemies together! The object is to stay alive as long as you can, but remember, enemies can come from either side so be ready.
