AAR: Cooperative Multiplayer

Post by adherbal » Sun Apr 26, 2015 5:22 pm

A comprehensive AAR (After-Action Report) is an excellent means to delve into gameplay details and show what the game has to offer. The report features a cooperative multiplayer scenario, putting two of the game's developers against a very capable Japanese AI.

Because this AAR is very detailed - including lots of screenshots and video footage - so we have split it into three parts:

Part I
Part II
Part III

It would've been nice if you informed the playerbase that there are only two cooperative multiplayer maps. I'm feeling a little ripped off right now. This was an advertised feature - there are only two scenarios to choose from.

More will follow soon enough. They're actualy pretty easy to create if one starts from a singleplayer scenario and adds one more human player.

Looks like there are 5 coop games altogether, 3 with two player teams and two with two players against the AI.

Incorrect. You can only play 2 of them cooperatively.

I think you're confusing cooperative and head-to-head. Two vs Two is not cooperative.

2v2 means two human players play against two other human players, so there are three (I've played all of them during testing).
And I think two human players vs the AI would also classify as cooperative unless we use that word different. English is not my native tongue...
But I agree, more of these would be fun.

My apologies to MikeAP, I see in another post that he's looking for 2 humans vs AI scenarios and there is only two of those of course.

I think you're confusing head-to-head with cooperative.

2 vs 2 is both. Head to head (2 teams) and cooperative (2 players together on the same team).
