Zeno Clash Co-Op Details Revealed

We mentioned some time back that an Xbox LIVE Arcade port of the PC indie hit Zeno Clash was in the works and that this version would include, among a few other features, the ability to play the game co-operatively.  ACE Team, the studio behind the game's development, recently revealed a few more details about this port to, including what to expect regarding the game's co-op mode.

The tower challenges are present in the PC game, but the Xbox 360 version will have co-op for this game mode.  Now you will be able to beat up enemies with a buddy via Xbox Live or split screen which is twice as much fun.

For those wondering what the Tower Challenge mode is, exactly, it's essentially a kind of survival mode where players face off against enemies in a variety of situations with the difficulty of each of these encounters increasing as the player makes his/her way up the tower.  There are five tower challenges total that can be unlocked as the player makes single-player campaign progress, and each challenge ends with a final boss battle.  Survival modes may not be anything new in the co-op world, but this one promises to be a little bit different due to the game's core play mechanics (first-person brawler) than many of the other modes that are out there.  The one downside, in this case, is that it sounds as if the co-op for this particular survival mode will be limited to two player online or local co-op only.  Sure there are plenty of great co-op experiences to be had with just one buddy, but adding two or three more tends to increase the fun by quite a bit.
