New Patch Brings More Co-Op to PSN's Under Siege

The PlayStation Network's exclusive RTS, Under Siege, has received some co-op love. Cooperative maps will now be available from the start of the game.  Also, the difficulty has been scaled down to make the game more accessible to new players.  You can see a full list of the additions and improvements after the break.

Additions:

  • Antialiasing in both 720p and 1080p display modes
  • Players can now continue the campaign from any level they have already finished, instead of only the last
  • The maximum number of players in local and online play has been increased to 4
  • New multiplayer maps supporting 4 players
  • New 2 player cooperative map
  • New option to disable edge scrolling when using the PlayStation Move controller
  • Timers and counters in the editor can now be set to visible for specific teams
  • Additional sound effects in the editor
  • A lot of new country flags for the player profile

Changes:

  • Player units now only pursue nearby enemies up to 5 meters from the position ordered by the player, and return there after either killing the enemy or if they get too far
  • Cooperative maps are unlocked from the start
  • Fog of war is now animated and better looking
  • Player units in casual difficulty receive less damage
  • Players in casual difficulty receive double the gold from killing enemies
  • Unit level now affects skill cooldown
  • No longer necessary to reassign the navigation controller to slot 1
  • Improvements to deadzone handling
  • Bigger font for dialog balloons
  • General performance improvements and shorter load times
  • Unit balance adjustments
  • The first few levels of the game were rebalanced to make the game more accessible to new players

FIXES

  • Improvements to online performance
  • If the player loses a unit, restarting the level now correctly resets the "Survivalist" trophy
  • Several minor adjustments and fixes
 

When I first read the patch notes I thought the game would now support four player online and local co-op, but I did a little digging.  I found that only one of the new maps supports co-op, and it supports only two player co-op. The four player maps are for 2v2 battles.  It does appear that four player co-op might be available in the future. (If you happen to download the patch and notice four player co-op has been somehow enabled, please drop a line in the comments section!)

Under Siege is out now on the PSN.  It supports two player local co-op as well as two player online co-op.
