BOSSGARD is a fabulous looking new asymmetrical multiplayer game that pits player-controlled bosses against a warband of brave vikings in arena-based battles to the death.
Currently in development by the team behind Black The Fall, in BOSSGARD five player-controlled vikings face off against one large player-controlled boss in fast paced twin-stick arena combat. There’s a nice selection of Bosses to choose from, ranging from a dice with teeth to a massive walking slice of toast, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and attacks. You have a nice selection of Vikings to choose from too, with an assortment of different weaponry, allowing you to focus on ranged or melee combat. There’s also an assortment of wacky arenas to do battle in, such as a concert stage or a giant deadly espresso machine – all of which have their own traps and gameplay variations.
It’s a great looking game that should be fun to play whether you’re a boss or a viking. Obviously being a boss is more alluring, but playing as a viking should allow for more strategic gameplay, with you using teamwork and specific tactics to target the weaknesses of each boss.
