Untitled Goose Game Adds a Second Horrible Goose In Free Multiplayer Update
Untitled Goose Game gets a honking good multiplayer update.
Untitled Goose Game was an unexpected mega-hit when it waddled its way onto the Nintendo Switch last year. The game sold over one million copies in just three months and was subject to tonnes of memes, mashups and fan art for a period after launch. The game was a timed exclusive on the Nintendo Switch and launched on both the PS4 and Xbox One (including Xbox Game Pass) later that year.
Now, during today’s Nintendo Indie World Showcase as the “One more thing”, developers House House shared the news that Untitled Goose Game would be getting a free two-player update. The update is due for launch in just over a month, releasing on September 23.
The video showed off the carnage that players have come to expect from Untitled Goose Game, only this time, with an extra horrible goose. It showcases an extra layer of depth that a second goose will add to the gameplay, as one goose serves as a distraction while the other creeps around to complete the objective. The terrible duo can be seen in the trailer stealing keys and dumping a picnic into a river.
Today’s Nintendo Indie World Showcase was considered extremely positive, and despite not sharing any information on Hollow Knight: Silksong (I’m not bitter) revealed plenty of great games coming to Switch. Some of the highlights include Supergiant Games’ Hades, complete with PC cross-save functionality and A Short Hike and Spiritfarer, which both launch on the Switch today.
Untitled Goose Game, which is getting an eco-friendly physical release on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch later this year, reviewed very highly when it launched in September last year. The game won an array of game of the year awards. You can read our review of the game right now where we said: “House House’s Untitled Goose Game is undoubtedly a hilarious experience, but it lacks a varied toolset to maximize said hilarity.”
