Playdigious‘ mobile port of the legendary beat-em-up brawler Streets of Rage 4 has announced that it will be added in the highly requested multiplayer mode on September 13. This update will allow you to play with friends online and take to the streets of Wood Oak City to save the citizens using only your fists and skills.
If you haven’t heard of it, Streets of Rage 4 is of course the 4th in one long line of beat-em-up arcade games that have remained a permanent landmark in gaming history. It sees you and your friends pick a character from the tight but very solid roster and hit the streets where you’ll beat up hundreds of nameless idiots while using a variety of skills per turn. Grade.
The gameplay loop has remained the same since the first entry years ago and is still very engaging to this day. It’s simple at its core, but the combat has a good bit of depth once you dig your teeth into it, so there’s plenty to master and learn, especially on the hardest difficulties. Add in how differently each character plays, and there’s enough variety on display here that it could take you a long time to fully master the entire roster.
Considering how essential the multiplayer component of the series has been since it launched back then, it was a bit of a bummer to see the mobile port of Streets of Rage 4 released without support for it. But now we’ll finally be able to team up with our partners in crime to wreak havoc in the city!
If you want to get in on the action with your friends yourself, you can purchase Streets of Rage 4 for just $8.99 at one of the links below! In the meantime, feel free to take a look official website to see some screenshots and trailers!
