CastleStorm Multiplayer / Co-Op Modes
1 vs. 1 split-screen mode: simply try and beat
your opponent by bashing in their castle. Choose your side (the
noble Knights or the ragtag Vikings) and then choose your arsenal
of weapons wisely. Face off, castle to castle and the first to
completely demolish his or her opponent’s castle wins!
Survival Co-op: Two players team up to fight off
waves of enemies together! Assign one player to control the
ballista and the other to control ground forces. Good timing and
great aim are essential in Survival Co-op as friendly fire could be
harmful to your own troops on the ground.
Last Stand Co-op mode: Would you rather ditch the
castle and do some hand-to-hand combat out in the battlefield?
Check out the Last Stand Co-op mode where both players control a
hero and battle wave after wave of enemies together! The object is
to stay alive as long as you can, but remember, enemies can come
from either side so be ready.
CastleStorm is being developed by Zen Studios, and published by
Microsoft Game Studios on Xbox LIVE® Arcade.
It’s Knights vs. Vikings in
CastleStorm, where medieval warfare meets 2D physics-based
destruction! Controlling the battle in real time, players will
harness the power of medieval artillery, manage a fearsome ground
attack, and cast powerful spells!
CastleStorm features a story-driven solo campaign, a
custom castle editor, online multiplayer, co-op modes, and more.
Building castles and knocking them down has never been so much fun!
CastleStorm is coming soon to Xbox LIVE® Arcade,
published by Microsoft Game Studios.
