Hoard Coming to PAX, Four-Player Co-Op Confirmed

Tyler Sigman's Avatar Posted by Design Director, Big Sandwich Games

Dragons, gold, jewels, and princesses — they’ll all be on display at PAX next month when Hoard makes its first appearance to the general public! We first announced the game here.

Hoard for PS3 and PSP

For those of you that don’t know, Hoard is an arcade action title coming to PSN (both for PS3 and PSP). In this score-attack game, up to four players take the part of small dragons with very big ambitions, and try to amass a hoard of glittering treasure in over 30 different kingdoms.

How do you get treasure, you ask? By BURNING things, of course! And kidnapping princesses for ransom… At the Big Sandwich Games booth (#3012), we’ll have two screens of non-stop dragon combat action, swag, and prizes for a daily high-score competition. Oh, and we’ll also have a real, honest-to-goodness princess*. So come get your firebreathing on!

Since our last post, we can confirm four-player co-op play has been added to the game — thanks for all the comments! That rounds our feature set out with Treasure, Princess Rush, Hoard (Survival), and Co-op modes. We support up to four dragons in any combination of couch and online players.

A few of latest screenshots are above to tide you over until the trailer hits right before PAX. And remember, kids: the only good knight is a roasted knight!

Any way Hoard can be played both on the ps3 and psp without buying two separated versions?

@Onvertic

Pretty sure it’s like the PixelJunk series. Just download the game onto your PSP.

I look forward to playing it while at Pax.

Co-Op sounds fun.

I’m all for 4-player co-op, especially if we can get all the trophies in said co-op mode.

The screenshots show a lot of aliasing artifacts; I hope those will be taken care of by the time the game comes out. The grass and shrubs could also use some work — the PS3 is capable of much better.

Right now the PS3 version looks like an upscaled PSP version. Will the lighting, shaders, models, and textures in the PS3 version receive more work before release?

Like how it sounds, co-op is always fun, will be waiting for some gameplay videos.
