Every successful game nowadays hinges on the success of a few things. Ideally, a good game would boast a great single player playthru, and then a competitive multiplayer format that would extend the game's lifespan. In my previous update about this game, I was very excited about the multiple map paths of the game's single player scenarios; the prospect of being able to move back & forth between maps to accomplish game objectives is just fun.
But to be able to play this game in cooperative gameplay is just awesome. It was announced that the game would support a 2-4 players multiplayer game in ad-hoc coorperative gameplay (not sure about team deathmatch though). Playing a coop game will be very tactical & strategic if your team is to accomplish each mission together. It would mean having to delegate your pilots to fight on different maps and taking various objective points at the same time. If one of your teammate's MS need to resupply, then you better have the rest of the team to cover the frontline. With 4 professional real human pilots playing together, I can already smell my PSP battery running overtime.
Mulitplayer game can be configured with custom pilots that you and your friend creates. And you can select any unlocked MS to play each match... YES even cross series. (Sorry GVG Next Plus.... but your time with my PSP is over)
And with Xlink Kai, you can play with the best pilots from around the world!
I can't wait to form up my own Flag Fighters!!! I will be Graham.... and you guys can be Howard & Daryl. If you guys dies.. I will name my swords after you.
Battle Result from each multiplayer match will show all the stats and points. Every objective accomplished will be calculated into the Total G Fund. But at this time I am not quite sure if the G Fund would grant players to the ability to beef up their MS, upgrade weapon stats, player stats, and acquire new MSs. I assume that is the case, but need to be verified.
