Is this game going to be 4-player Co-op like Castle Crashers? or just 2-players?

There are 4-player 2v2 arena modes and also up to 2-player co-op for the campaign. No 4-player co-op for the story.

There's a way to play 4 player co-op, but the details haven't been released yet.

I heard that there will be more than 4 player, but it will probably be online-only.

 

 

EDIT:There will be 16 player max for 1 game but like i said it will probably be online-only for 16.

 

On 1 console it is obviously 4 player max.

Really? Because then you may have leaked some info to me in a different thread.

4 player "co-op". 4 people all on the same screen playing a story-like stage and it works like a Gran Prix (you get more points in what place you finish), but there's a catch! The stages are still set up in the co-op style where you gotta do throws and stuff, so alliances are quickly made but broken even quicker...

I could have sworn at one of the conventions you mentioned (or jokingly mentioned) about more that 4 players at once and maybe even 16 players at once.

I could have sworn at one of the conventions you mentioned (or jokingly mentioned) about more that 4 players at once and maybe even 16 players at once.

 

It's true, we started with 16 at one point (actually we started with 64) but paired it down until it made sense for players themselves, made sense for the design and its limitations, made sense with 2 sets of levels maximum, ensured smooth connections on the client-to-client server scenario, kept the chaos managable on all modes, and managed to fill each cannoli of judgement simultaneously with the perfect pie filling.  

 

In our tests with ourselves and others the amount of players we currently have in each mode were accepted exponentially over any other choice. Unfortunately some of this goes against what we naturally think would be better, as it just isn't better in practice (for the majority, anyway).

 

The biggest problem with hordes of people in arena were utter chaos and goal management being lost.  This made all modes feel the same.

 

The biggest problem with hordes of people in story was that 99% of the time you could all just keep mashing jump and solve anything that any level designer could possibly come up with.  This reduced challenge nearly to the point of not existing.

 

At the shows I try to make sure when I say something like that that it's understood it is subject to change.  Sorry if I didn't!

I'm pretty sure 4 player co-op would break the game, but maybe Behemoth will make some DLC or huge updates that will add 4 player co-op in a way that won't make everything easy. Maybe Dan metioned a way that isn't in the game ATM which is why details haven't been released yet? One can only hope.

Now that we're out of beta and the game's released I can talk about this.

 

You can do 4 player co-op play through user generated levels.  Just cooperate with the other 2 people in the game.

 

Go ahead and try making some levels for 4 people.  You'll see how much less satisfying it really is by trying it  :)

I thought it was pretty cool Dan.... like co-op challenge but at the same time... see which team makes it there first ;)

pretty frantic n cool.... will definitely have to try it again tho for a more concrete opinion.... but more options is never a bad thing :D
