But that’s not all! The most thrilling part is the addition of four-player couch co-op, available on all platforms. Gather up to three friends and embark on a journey to vanquish hordes of enemies together. This new multiplayer mode will be released on August 17th as well. While official online co-op support won’t be provided, Poncle has mentioned in an FAQ that alternative options like Steam Remote Play Together can be utilized.
Vampire Survivors initially debuted on Steam in late 2021, later expanding to Xbox and mobile devices. For those unfamiliar with the game, you’ll be tasked with selecting a character, each armed with a unique starter weapon and perk. Your weapon will automatically fire, leaving you in control of movement and the decision to upgrade, acquire new weapons, or choose perks upon leveling up.
The runs in Vampire Survivors typically last up to 30 minutes, unless you can uncover the secret to surviving Death itself, in which case they can extend even further. This makes the game an excellent choice for playing during commutes, or really any time you’re looking for an exhilarating adventure.
