Cooperative Adventuring in Wizard with a Gun
Wizard with a Gun, our sandbox survival adventure game, has just been released on Xbox Series X|S, and we couldn’t be more excited for all you gunmancers out there to join in the fun! Before you embark on your expeditions to conquer enemies, gather loot, and explore The Shatter, we want to give you more details about the cooperative gameplay experience for two players online. With the timer ticking, you and your wizard buddy will need to make some important decisions because death means losing almost everything you’ve collected. But fear not, because teamwork is key, and there are several co-op mechanics in place to optimize your collaboration.
Magical bullets are crucial for survival in The Shatter. Each bullet possesses a unique effect, and many can be upgraded for greater potency. By having different types of bullets between you and your partner, you can unleash devastating combos. For example, one wizard can cast freezing spells while the other shatters the ice chunk with destructive spells, dealing massive damage together. There are numerous combinations to discover and experiment with, such as oil + fire, electricity + water, and even enchanting and healing.
Protect and Heal
When it comes to healing, if your HP reaches zero, rather than dying outright, you’ll be knocked down. During this state, your partner can help you up, but doing so leaves them vulnerable. Make sure both of you are safe before lending a hand to avoid losing more wizards in the process. We don’t want any unnecessary casualties out there!
Ward Off Evil (When You’re Dead)
If one of you happens to meet their unfortunate demise, don’t worry! Even in death, you can still contribute as a ghost. Ghosts can frighten enemies, causing them to flee in fear. When the game becomes overwhelming for a single wizard, even a small scare can make all the difference between survival and failure.
Rise Again (aka Not Be Dead)
During your exploration of The Shatter, you may come across Resurrection Altars. Legend has it that if a living wizard and a ghost stand within the Altar’s circle, the ghost will be able to return to the realm of the living. Keep an eye out for these Altars on your travels, as they may just save the day.
These are just a few glimpses into the thrilling and sometimes mysterious features that two wizards can utilize together to gain an upper hand against the chaotic evils of The Shatter. We hope you’ll give Wizard with a Gun a shot and thrive alongside your favorite co-op friends on Xbox!
