More details about the upcoming Basement Crawl
Basement Crawl, the upcoming PS4 release, has had some light shed upon it by development crew, Bloober Team. Until now, all that was known about Basement Crawl is that it will be a maze-based multiplayer action game exclusively for the PS4.
Today word was released from Bloober teams creative director and vice president, Peter Bielatowicz, that Basement Crawl was inspired by games such as Spy vs Spy and Bomberman.
“Gameplay revolves around setting up traps, self-detonated or activated by characters approaching it or stepping on it without noticing, to hurt other players,” said Bielatowicz.
“It’s focused on multiplayer, but basic single-player campaigns with bots to fill in for missing characters will be available too. While our inspirations go back to the retro classics, we are making a game up-to-date with the competition. It goes from the audio-visuals – Basement Crawl will be 2.5D game with dynamic cameras – to the game modes, characters and mechanics. We felt that many games nowadays are dependent on character development or luck and randomness, so we designed Basement Crawl to exclude the luck factor and remove the dependence on leveling-up characters. We want to make Basement Crawl as skill-based as possible and focus on hardcore players instead of casual or ‘middlecore’ players.”
Basement Crawl will support up to 8 players online, and 4 players in-room, with varying combinations of the two.
Basement Crawl’s release date has yet to be announced.
