Hoard Coming to PAX, Four-Player Co-Op Confirmed via PSN
Big Sandwich Games Design Director Tyler Sigman has revealed today that Hoard is coming to PAX, and that four-player co-op is also confirmed for the PS3 and PSP title via PSN.
To quote: Dragons, gold, jewels, and princesses - they'll all be on display at http://www.paxsite.com/paxprime/index.php next month when http://www.hoardgame.com/ makes its first appearance to the general public!
For those of you that don't know, Hoard is an arcade action title coming to PSN (both for PS3 and PSP). In this score-attack game, up to four players take the part of small dragons with very big ambitions, and try to amass a hoard of glittering treasure in over 30 different kingdoms.
How do you get treasure, you ask? By BURNING things, of course! And kidnapping princesses for ransom... At the Big Sandwich Games booth (#3012), we'll have two screens of non-stop dragon combat action, swag, and prizes for a daily high-score competition. Oh, and we'll also have a real, honest-to-goodness princess. So come get your firebreathing on!
Since our last post, we can confirm four-player co-op play has been added to the game - thanks for all the comments! That rounds our feature set out with Treasure, Princess Rush, Hoard (Survival), and Co-op modes. We support up to four dragons in any combination of couch and online players.
A few of latest screenshots are above to tide you over until the trailer hits right before PAX. And remember, kids: the only good knight is a roasted knight!
