Playtonic Games Announces Yooka-Laylee Multiplayer

/ Jan 19th, 2017 No Comments


Publisher Team17 and developer Playtonic Games formally announced the multiplayer modes that will be featured in Yooka-Laylee.

Multiplayer will feature eight mini-games that can be played by up to four players locally. The local multiplayer games will be accessible via Rextro’s Arcade.

These mini-games include Glaciator’s brawler arena, which will be a fight to collect the most quills, and Kartos Karting, a racing-based game. Rextro’s Arcade will also feature a capture-the-flag mode called Blag the Flag and a shoot-em-up game titled Gun-let Run.

Players will be able to unlock mini-game challenges by collecting hidden coins during the game’s single-player campaign.

Playtonic Games also announced a co-op mode for the game’s campaign. While one player controls the game’s titular duo Yooka and Laylee, a second person can play as The Bee Team.


Up to four players can enjoy eight unique multiplayer titles via Rextro’s Arcade.

The Bee Team will be able to assist the main characters by picking up quills, collecting and storing butterflies (the game’s health & energy collectible) as well as temporarily stopping traps to help the main duo get by.

Yooka-Laylee will be available April 11 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux.

Quick Take

It is disappointing that Yooka-Laylee will not feature online multiplayer, but the showcasing of local multiplayer is a surprising treat. Being able to play with friends in so many different ways is an incredibly exciting prospect.
