Fatshark’s Krater released earlier this year on Steam to mostly average reviews. While it did initially release without multiplayer, Fatshark has always said that a cooperative patch would be coming and it would be coming free of charge.
As of today, that patch is real. Krater players can now thwack and zap enemies together in maniacal bliss. Each player controls their own squad of three, making for what I imagine to be a large amount of kill stealing.
Fatshark producer Robert Bäckström says that there will be more updates to Krater:
“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. 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.”
At the same time, Krater also has a new bit of DLC titled Mayhem MK13, which features a new hybrid ranged and melee class to add to your roster.
