TerraTech, the open-world sandbox vehicle builder adds a co-op creative mode

Posted by , | Views: 5,156

Working towards adding in co-op support to the actual campaign, TerraTech now at least has a co-op creative mode.

This new mode allows you and three other people to adventure together and create whatever the heck you want. It has Steam invite support, so it should be nice and easy to play with others.

As for the campaign the latest update also introduces new missions for the Better Future faction; multiplayer lobbies got more options like being able to set them is Private, Public or Friends Only; over 30 new building blocks for your vehicles and some bug fixes.

Really great to see TerraTech continue to expand after release. When it has full co-op campaign support, it's going to be especially exciting. I enjoy the campaign but it's a game I genuinely want to play with others. Even so, I would say it's still worth picking up now if you enjoy building vehicles, adventuring and battling.

Find it on Humble Store and Steam.

I played this game a good while ago, it's not bad, it's a vehicle focused builder sandbox. My biggest issue with it was the AI back when I played it (but it was 1 year ago, maybe it's better now).

It's a game about building combat vehicles and destroying AI vehicles to scrap them for parts and use them to build even better combat vehicles. At first it's a bit of a challenge, but eventually you can build things that are too strong for the AI to destroy, and there are weapons that will in general 1-shot the AI as well, it didn't have proper scaling.

Not to mention the AI was just plain dumb, and the AI you can add to oyur own constructions didn't properly work (you couldn't for example make a vehicle you've built follow you around even if there was an option for it, it just didn't work; the only thing it really worked for was turrets)

If the AI has been updated I would love to play it again.

(Edit: Apparently it hasn't been updated, but I can still recommend it, I got like 50 hours out of it before I got bored)

My biggest issue with this game is that my son bought it quite a while ago on GoG with his hard-earned allowance, and then this happened:

Unfortunately (for me...) the game has an update check when it starts, and it keeps telling him there is a newer version of the game and that he should update -- which he can't, because the updates stopped (forever) on GoG. He's borderline autistic so unfortunately it comes up now and again. I'll probably end up buying it again for him, but jeez. There's always a risk with "early access" or in this case "In dev" games, but let that be a lesson -- there's always a chance the game drops a platform too.

I bought this after playing it with my 3 year old this free weekend. It's the first game we've played where he can shoot a gun, which he thinks is awesome. I do the driving and he does the shooting (pew pew against lego cars, not violence against living things) and tells me what to build.
