TWENTY ONE PILOTS( OR FOUR, ANYWAY)
Override allows one to four people to play in a match together, with or without AI. But that’s not all. You can also have up to four people in the
same mech. How does that work? Why, with much hilarity and many passive-aggressive suggestions, of course! With two players, one is the pilot and the arms, the other the legs. With three players, there’s one pilot, one controlling legs, one controlling arms. With four players, it’s one for legs, one for each arm, and one pilot.
We found this worked surprisingly well, though communication between players becomes essential when there are three or four of you in one mech. Playing 2v2 in this way, we managed to dodge attacks, and even retreat underground on the Egypt map to avoid an Ultimate. With everybody crowded into the same mech, we managed – just – to defeat an AI opponent on the highest difficulty setting. It works!
