'TowerFall Ascension' (PS4) Gets Dated - Screens & Trailer

TowerFall Ascension is a 4-player archery combat platformer, a competitive party game inspired by classics from the glory days of local multiplayer.

You’ll get plenty of chaos, close calls, and comebacks. Be sure to have a few friends (or enemies) handy when you download it. Gloating is encouraged and noise complaints just mean you’re playing it right.

TowerFall Ascension stays true to the original game with its intense 4-­player battles. In Ascension there are 50 new Versus arenas to fight on, for a total of 120 unique levels, and a bunch of new variants to customize your matches with. There are a few new powerups too, which change the game up considerably. My favorite: drill arrows that burrow through walls.

Ascension also introduces the new 1­ or 2­-player co-­op Quest mode. It’s an arena mode where monsters spawn from portals as you defend yourself using the same skills you’ve honed in Versus mode. Quest mode is an interesting new take on the same core mechanics, and adds a bunch of new content to explore even when you don’t have three friends around.
