Gauntlet Hits PS4 as Gauntlet: Slayer EditionJohn Bardinelli

The new edition brings with it a few tweaks to soothe the pain of an extended delay. New weapons and abilities have been added, along with new monster types and new player attacks like shield throws, summons, and spin attacks. Endless mode has also been added, for those days when you just don't wanna stop slaying. There are also new daily colosseum challenges and potion functionalities to look forward to, as well. And as expected, four player local and online co-op is still supported, so no worries there.

Arrowhead, who you may know as the developers of Magicka or the more recent Helldivers, has become quite adept at introducing new content to their games far past release.  In fact, to say they support their games well is an understatement akin to describing Dennis Rodman as "quirky".  This new edition will see both visual and mechanical improvements ranging from character and environment assets to more fully realized hero abilities.  A new game mode enters the fray as well, which Arrowhead's own Emil Englund proclaims will give players a chance to cement their status as the scourge of monsters everywhere.  It isn't explicitly mentioned, but I'm kinda hoping it involves a lot of the heroes calling out the monsters' fat mommas.

It's the latter we are most interested in for our latest Co-Op Twitch Stream. Last night we took on a few maps, earned a few capes, and enjoyed a brutal slaying in three player co-op for Gauntlet. It's OK, we're world ranked. Just don't ask us where in the world we are ranked.

On top of training an army of mindless skeletons, her "Ghost Walk" ability lets her traverse through groups of enemies for a limited time. Since Gauntlet is nothing but a colossal amount of baddies on screen wanting to carve you up, Lilith's Ghost Walk can poof her out some sticky situations.

Remember Gauntlet? No, not the forgettable last one, or those ones you played in the late 90’s. I’m talking about the Gauntlet you played in the arcade and poured quarters into because it incessantly told you that ‘Wizard needs food badly’. The 2014 Gauntlet is a remake of the 1980’s classic, blending the old school ga...

So what happened? Well mostly the Wizard was a dick. The Warrior went on roid rages. The Valkyrie was blinded by gold lust. And the Elf? He shot the food. But I'll let the stream speak for itself as we conquer the first dungeon, boss and onto the second set of levels.

Magicka developer Arrowhead Game Studios is behind the wheel of Gauntlet 2014, and the team has assured everyone that it will remain faithful to the original. All four character classes are making a comeback, as is four player co-op, which was pretty much the entire reason we played Gauntlet in the first place. That, and our insatiable urge to pick up and eat food that's just sitting on the floor. Ghosts, grunts and demons aren't gonna eat that chicken, so we might as well, since we need food badly and all.

Those that grew up in a world of upright arcade machines will be all too familiar with Gauntlet. The top-down action game let four players crowd around a single screen, each controlling a character class and trying to beat back endless swarms of ghosts, grunts, demons and thieves. Along the way you'd pick up keys to open doors, food and potions to stay alive, and treasure for points. It was a quarter muncher for sure, especially when you throw in four players trying their best not to die.

We've had our eye on this article for quite some time, and since our resident classic co-op guy (that would be me!) has been away from his beloved MAME cabinet this week, the time is now right.  TechRadar's The History of Co-Op Gaming is an excellent read for any fan of co-op.

The original Gauntlet was one of the first, and arguably the greatest, co-op experiences in video game history.  The Gauntlet Legends series of remakes was pretty good too.  As of late, though, the Gauntlet name has been fading somewhat.  Gauntlet Seven Sorrows was seen by many as a step backwards.
