Guns of Icarus Online co-op mode coming as early as Q1 2014
Guns of Icarus fans won't have to wait too long for the fun and frantic Co-op Mode -- "very soon closed testing will begin," said Muse Games.
With closed testing around the corner, Co-op mode is set to go live in the MMOFPS as early as the end of Q1 or early Q2 of this year, the developer also confirmed.
Co-op Mode has been gaining some buzz in the airship combat MMORPG due as a way to let off some steam with friends in non-competitive but still exciting fighting scenarios.
Players will be able to join forces "to fight off swarms of enemy fighter planes, giant enemy boss ships," among other scaled-up challenges.
Developers had been putting the final touches on the Co-op mode, according to the most recent weekly progress update.
This includes balancing the aeroplane AI to make sure they can put up a strong opposition (the enemy will be able to repair their airships) and avoid becoming farmable sitting ducks.
Ample rewards are also being lined up for successfully shooting down targets as a cohesive team, because we know nothing gets MMORPG fans working together more than the promise of fantastic loot.
