Developer Galvanic Games and publisher Devolver Digital have released a new update for action-adventure title Wizard with a Gun. As part of the update, titled Better Together, the game now features 4-player co-op. Check out the trailer for the Better Together update below. Check out the complete patch notes below as well, while you’re at it.

Better Together is a free update, and allows co-op for up to four players. Along with co-op, the update also brings a host of content changes to Wizard with a Gun, such as new difficulty levels, custom difficulty options, and content related to the gate of the Oculus.

The studio had announced the Better Together update for Wizard with a Gun just last week. Before the update, the game only featured co-op gameplay for up to two players. The studio originally wanted 4-player co-op in the title, but development constraints forced it to go with 2-player co-op for launch before expanding on its in the latest update.

Wizard with a Gun is available on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. For more details, check out some of the older trailers that had been released for the game showcasing its surreal environments and co-op gameplay.
