Video game 'CastleStorm' from developer Zen Studios.
The clouds of war are gathering more dense as multiplayer has been confirmed for the upcoming Xbox LIVE Arcade title CastleStorm. The title is a 2D real-time strategy physics-based destruction game from Zen Studios, the developers of Pinball FX2.
CastleStorm will feature three multiplayer / co-op modes and each will be playable in local split-screen or online multiplayer. Furthermore, players will be able to use their own custom made castles created in the Castle Editor in online multiplayer battles. Multiplayer progression is totally separate from the single player campaign, allowing players the opportunity to level up and gain experience separate from the single player campaign.
The multiplayer modes are listed below:
- 1 vs. 1 split-screen mode: simply try and beat your opponent by bashing in their castle . Choose your side (the noble Knights or the ragtag Vikings) and then choose your arsenal of weapons wisely. Face off, castle to castle and the first to completely demolish his or her opponent's castle wins.
- Survival Co-op: Two players team up to fight off waves of enemies together. Assign one player to control the ballista and the other to control ground forces. Good timing and great aim are essential in Survival Co-op as friendly fire could be harmful to your own troops on the ground.
- Last Stand Co-op mode: Would you rather ditch the castle and do some hand-to-hand combat out in the battlefield? Check out the Last Stand Co-op mode where both players control a hero and battle wave after wave of enemies together. The object is to stay alive as long as you can, but remember, enemies can come from either side so be ready.
CastleStorm will be released onto XBLA this Spring.
