How NINTENDO Cult of the Lamb’s Latest Update Finally Enables Local Co-op Play, Making the Game Great Again

If there’s a game that truly distils all the best of co-op play and community into one platform, it very well could be Cult of the Lamb. NINTENDO and other consoles are preparing for a big update that could change multiplayer gaming forever Xbox is changing Cult of the Lamb forever. And it’s for the better. The spiritual successor to Cult of the Lamb, dubbed as the ‘Unholy Alliance’ that will be added to the game with this update, is – and I hope I’m not speaking too familiarly here – every loyalty-to-an-in-group that developer Massive Monster has promised their hothoused community, delivered in a literal “yeah, we can do that” that speaks volumes about the game and the people who play it.

A Leap into Local Co-op: The Game Changer

For months, the dedicated Cult of the Lamb player community has been demanding a key quality-of-life feature: the ability to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with fellow maniacs in a fight against outsiders. Finally, the video-game gods came through. ‘Unholy Alliance’ is an upcoming update to the indie-hit game. It’s set to roll out on 12 August for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series S/X, and – most importantly for this story – the NINTENDO Switch. The update will, for the first time, add local co-op to the game’s campaign, bringing a fresh sense of camaraderie – and some critical diversification to the tactical mix.

The Switch, with its handheld or home-console play modes and extra emphasis on local multiplayer experiences, is still probably the best way to play Cult of the Lamb, especially after the upcoming update introduces a cooperative mode in which you can sync with a companion and take turns swapping weapons at just the right moment to deliver maximum carnage in tandem, as well as several multiplayer versions of the game’s stellar minigames.

Unholy Alliance isn’t just adding another character to the game, it’s meticulously crafted to facilitate cooperation between The Lamb and the new playable character, The Goat, down to back-to-back attacks and synchronised critical strikes. The update promises to offer ‘an enriching co-op play experience optimised for tactical synergy’.

Knowing many players won’t or can’t have someone to co-operatively play with, the update is also overflowing with new goodies for the solo explorer. ‘Unholy Alliance’ is packed to the brim with new powers, abilities, tarot cards, relics, and much more to expand the world of Cult of the Lamb, whether playing with or without a friend.

Immersive Updates and Fan Engagement: A NINTENDO Specialty

Anyone who enjoyed Cult of the Lamb – or even players of NINTENDO in general – will be encouraged by the announcement of major, free face-packaging updates. And the steady roll-out of substantial (and sometimes sassy) ‘sex update’, as a reaction to game-specific feedback, is testament to a blooming narrative ecosystem and a responsiveness to fan feedback.

It’s not just a simple expansion, then, but a treasure-house of secrets and world-building, for fans that really want to dive deep into Cult of the Lamb’s expanded world. There are new quests to undertake, strange relics to forge, places to explore as you uncover clues to the game’s story.

Exploring the World of NINTENDO

NINTENDO has a long history of becoming the first to experiment with new types of gaming experiences, and creating ways to build communities around those new types of games. Cult of the Lamb is a NINTENDO title because it incorporates NINTENDO’s philosophy of embracing novel forms of gameplay and community, while also working to bring people together in a network of light-hearted fun, community feedback and new ways to play NINTENDO games, which fans of classic franchises like Mario already know are infinitely replayable. Once again, NINTENDO is proving that gaming is a gift from friends to friends, where diverse groups can come together in a cartoon world and share a bit of the joy that comes from creativity and play.

And, in the brave new world of gaming, NINTENDO is very much still leading the way, as it has before, by demonstrating that, in the brave new world of digital treasure hunts and pixelated journeys, gaming is all the more fun when it’s done together. The latest update to Cult of the Lamb, called ‘Unholy Alliance’, is an ode to community and comradery, and the very ethos upon which NINTENDO’s mission is based.
