God Eater 3, Bandai Namco’s new action-RPG, will feature 8-man co-op. The Assault Mission introduces a co-op battle which will see players battling through a tough challenge before facing off against a boss.
In the following video, you can see the God Eater 3 Assault Mission in action. Players will be matched up randomly and if there’s not enough real players, the spots will be filled in by NPCs.
God Eater 3 Co-Op Confirmed
The co-op mission will last just five minutes and rewards will be handed out whether you’re successful or fail. Watch the God Eater co-op mission in action around the 21-minute mark.
These include a new Aragami called Barbarius. This ferocious warrior is covered with armor and has a unique skill where he can use his drill-shaped armed to penetrate the ground and stab players from under the surface. He can also crush the ground with his arm to send rubble flying at opponents, or use it to create lumps of ice which can be cast at enemies from afar.
God Eater 3 also boats two new game mechanics: Burst Plugin and Installing Skins.
A special feature that allows players to customize their God Arc’s Burst ability. Burst Plugin can be utilized to enhance a God Arc’s weapon, gun, or shield. It features a unique upgrade specific to each God Arc part, for example, preserving stamina consumption, making melee attacks stronger, or reducing damage during burst mode.
Installing Skills expand the basic performance of God Arc by using “Abandoned God Arc” which players obtain as a reward for completing each mission, enabling players to enhance their battle style, slash power, and speed of using portable items.
God Eater 3 is due to launch in early 2019 on PS4, and PC. A firm release date has yet to be announced.
