God’s Trigger is the surprisingly well-executed heaven and hell spin on games like Hotline Miami. The game launched in March, and received a warm critical reception. Now that the game has found its footing, developer One More Level is adding some free new content to the game.
First up is online co-op for PC. Instead of playing on the same screen in local co-op, players will be able to play God’s Trigger with a friend over the internet. This will require you and your buddy to each own a copy of the game, but online co-op is a great addition to the title. While I can play God’s Trigger alone, and there’s some strategy in using invulnerability frames as I switch protagonists, playing with a friend is when the chaos of the game really shines.
Second, One More Level will be releasing new arcade levels for free in June. These stages will be disconnected from the main narrative campaign of the game, and we can expect elements from previous levels to show back up in cunning combinations. Arcade levels are about providing a series of fun and dynamic challenges, and it’ll be interesting to see how the co-op formula holds up as players work through new environments and gauntlets.
More additional free content will be coming to God’s Trigger in the future. It’s interesting to see One More Level and Techland Publishing dedicate themselves to support for this quirky, small-scale title, and I’m intrigued to see what comes next.
