Rami Ismail of Vlambeer announced via the PAX Twitch stream today that Nuclear Throne, the procedurally generated, roguelike shoot ’em up is going to have a multiplayer mode.
Ismail emphasized that Vlambeer was using the game’s early access feedback in order to better the game over the course of its development. He noted that fans were continually asking for multiplayer modes, which he admits they had not planned for yet but was a logical next step in the process of making the game.
Nuclear Throne looks like a lot of fun, particularly for anyone who owns a PlayStation 4 and desperately wants something to play some couch co-op with their friends. Nuclear Throne is currently available on PC, Mac, and Linux and will be headed to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in the future. If you’d like to check out the game on Steam Early Access, you can do so here. Vlambeer will also be streaming the game’s development on a weekly basis, and you can get more information on that here.
