God Mode Has An Interesting Take On Co-Op
It's all fun and game until you have to murder each other.
Atlus has revealed more information for their new cooperative third-person shooter, God Mode. If you're unfamiliar with the recently announced downloadable title, I'll offer you this brief refresher: You're the descendant of a god, and you're dead. Gather up to three additional corpse friends and battle your way through the Maze of Hades to earn your immortal redemption. Game modifiers will change the rules of battle, bringing variety to each playthrough.
This latest video from our demonically flamboyant spirit guide offers some new information. Weapons like the plasma pistol, crossbow, and SMG can be upgraded by earning experience points and gold. You'll be able to customize a cadaverous avatar to your liking. Players can choose Oaths to increase enemy difficulty and earn higher XP rewards. At the end of each level you will be rewarded with access to a Gold Room, but there's a catch: Friendly Fire will be switched on and players will be able to kill each other and reap the rewards. I guess you could simply not pull the trigger. How much do you trust your co-op partners?
God Mode supports four player online co-op and four player local co-op via LAN. It will be available to download from the XBLM, PSN, and PC early this year.
