Krater's long-awaited cooperative update releases today, adding the ability to play Fatshark's colouful RPG with friends and a slew of singleplayer content for the bargain price of absolutely nothing whatsoever. Trailer and details after the break.
“We are very happy to bring co-op to the Krater universe. The download is free, and will also include a large number of updates to the single player content.” says Martin Wahlund, CEO and Executive Producer, Fatshark. “While the main game admittedly was released to fair success, that hasn’t changed our commitment to our fans and our universe”.
As we discussed in our 7/10 review, Krater is a retro-flavored post-apocalyptic top down RPG where you control a squad of free-diggers through the perils of an open game world. Should the new patch work well and fix some of the weaknesses in the package, I'll be prepared to moderate the score upwards.
“The patch that we call Krater 1.1 is the first of three major updates to the game that we will execute the coming weeks” says Robert Bäckström, Producer, Fatshark. “It comes with an updated engine for better performance on older rigs, and single player content that have expanded on and been improved in several areas - campaign, combat mechanics and character progression. And there is also a first batch of coop content in the game. If you haven’t gotten into Krater yet, this is the perfect time to do just that.”
A new DLC pack, Krater Mayhem Mk13, will also be available soon.
