With the release of Wasteland 3 just around the corner, developers are giving players new information about the cooperative multiplayer aspect of the game. In a new post on Xbox Wire, developers have provided a brief overview of what players can expect. In addition, the team showcased co-op gameplay via a new trailer.
Cooperative multiplayer includes:
- strategic decision-making between players about navigating gangs, factions, and cults of Colorado
- the ability to share and swap loot
- special quests that can be completed in co-op mode only
- “unique opportunities to mess with friends spreading rumors about them in the home base”
Choosing co-op multiplayer is as simple as picking the option in the main menu and then inviting a friend along for great RPG action. Players can choose whether or not to start a new game or to continue an existing game. When the game session ends, both players can choose to save the co-op session they have played which can then be continued individually or picked up again in a future session.
The game will be available on August 28th for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Mac.
