Independent development studio MercurySteam launched today Team-Up or Die, the third milestone in Spacelords’ Roadmap, adding demand-driven features meant to improve player communication in its coop games. This awaited update is now available for all PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows 10 and PC Steam players of MercurySteam’s Free to Play shooter.
The new Communication System introduces the figure of the Team Leader, who can issue orders to the rest of the team. Players can accept those orders, but can also propose other initiatives, and evaluate their leader’s performance with a “thumbs-up” at the end of the match.
Along with this new and useful communication tool, MercurySteam is adding another highly demanded feature to Spacelords: the Character Trial. Players can now play with unrecruited characters for a limited amount of time and decide if they want to acquire them before investing Gold –Spacelords’ in-game currency– in unlocking them. The character recruiting tiers have also been simplified, with players now being able to recruit 4 new characters instead of one after hitting a certain level.
“The arrival of Team-up or Die implies better communication between new players and veterans who can now mentor them,” commented Enric Álvarez, Game Director. “Spacelords’ players have also expressed their desire to try Characters before recruiting them, and we have made good to our word of listening to our community when adding new features to the game.”
We hope you enjoy these new features, Spacelords. See you on the Broken Planet!
