Heavenly Sword - Maybe Multiplayer?
Heavenly Sword for the PS3 will definitely be a one-player game upon release. But the Ninja Theory team have not ruled out the possibility of making it multiplayer sometime in the future. Ninja Theory co-founder Tameem Antoniades told EuroGamer:
“There’s no multiplayer mode in Heavenly Sword as our focus was always to create an intense personal experience; it would have been too damn complex to deal with that as well,” Antoniades told Eurogamer. “We did, however, develop the combat system using multiplayer test levels, as it’s a great way of soak testing and balancing it.”
“So who knows? Maybe we will decide to go down that route sometime soon. And when we do, it won’t just be slapped-on to please marketing tick-boxes. You can be assured that we have our sights on multiplayer.”
Any regular reader knows that I love multiplayer, so I’m crosing my fingers and my toes, hoping for a multiplayer co-op mode (or something) for this game! The PS3 doesn’t have enough multiplayer options as it is, so the more developers think about and implement multiplayer, the better!
