It took a while, but Elastic Games’ Last Year: The Nightmare is finally out today. The 5v1 asymmetric multiplayer game is available via the Discord Store for US$29.99, as part of their exclusive “First to Discord” program. To go along with the launch, Elastic Games have provided a brand spankin’ new trailer for Last Year.
Elastic Games has also confirmed total post-launch support for the title, which includes content updates, as well as a multiplatform release in 2019 to further bolster the community. What those content updates include have yet to be announced, but isn’t that part of the fun? No word if crossplay will be included, but one can hope!
In case you need a refresher, Last Year has five players teaming up to work together and attempt to escape the environment that they’re currently in, while at the same time fighting against deadly killers controlled by a sixth player. The group of five must explore the environment and complete objectives while being stalked by a trio of killers. The five can arm themselves with bats, guns, and other tools to fight back against the aggressors, but their best chance of survival will be strategy and teamwork.
Look out for our review in the near future.
