TWENTY ONE PI­LOTS( OR FOUR, ANY­WAY)

Games Master - - Feature On The Cover! -

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!
