The apocalypse is usually better with friends, which is why Vlambeer is adding co-op multiplayer to their upcoming roguelike Nuclear Throne. The developer released some new footage of the game at PAX East, showing some more of the post-apocalyptic world and the many dangers that have come to inhabit it before showing some of the new two-player co-op feature, which will allow a pair of buddies to blast some radioactive rats together.

Vlambeer's Rami Ismail made the formal announcement through Nuclear Throne's Steam Greenlight page. In addition to co-op, the Steam Early Access version of the game is being updated with a number of bug fixes and optimized performance tweaks.

The final version of Nuclear Throne is expected to exit Steam Early Access later this year. The game will also come to PS4 and Vita.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I LOVE Vlambeer. Haven't tried this as I try to avoid early access titles, but definitely going to pick it up on release.

      Got a free key for Nuclear Throne at PAX East. It's a lot of fun. So far I've gotten to 4-1.
