Local Co-Op Has Been Added To Ruin Of The RecklessEnoch Starnes

Well, okay, maybe it's not that surprising, considering that's one of the core tenets listed on the game's Kickstarter page, but it's exciting nonetheless.  Drawing inspiration from such games as Nuclear Throne and Samurai Gunn, RotR has promised to deliver co-op gameplay in which both players control their own, unique character, not some puny, throwaway sidekick.

The last we heard from Nerdook and Vertical Drop Heroes HD, the one-man development team had just wrapped up converting the game from a browser-based Flash game to a full-fledged PC title. Since then, he's been busy working on bringing the action RPG game to the current gen consoles, a venue that feels pretty appropriate for it as it's a fun/quick pick-up-and-play co-op title. Just as on the PC, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game will support two player couch co-op.

What can we expect with Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2? More of the same, but also more in general. Developer Crazy Monkey Studios promises online multiplayer, local co-op, a refined movement system with 360 degree aiming, more weapons, and more things to use those weapons on, like zombies and Nazis. The story even picks up where the first game left off, forming the kind of seamless continuity we love in our prohibition themed video games.

First up, co-op. Exactly as we expected, Yooka-Laylee will allow two players to play through the campaign mode together. Player two controls the Bee Team to stop traps and collect things like quills and butterflies. It's limited to couch co-op only, but that's ok, because it's going to be grand.

The way it works is simple - one player drives with the VR headset on, a second player takes on the co-driver role. They'll watch the action on the TV, because Player 1 has a different view in the headset, and use a controller to pass along instructions to the driver about upcoming turns. For the time being, this will only be available on the PS4 version, according to the official Dirt Twitter account. The PC version of DiRT Rally already supports VR, but not co-op.
