Lost Reavers follows your standard shoot ’em up action formula. Players will assume the role of one of four characters, and they’ll have to work together to recover artifacts hidden throughout a maps. There will be a variety of maps to play through, and each one will come with its own monsters and obstacles.

The gist of the game is simple: you’ll face various undead enemies, combat huge and powerful bosses, and recover long-lost treasures.

All in a day’s work, I suppose.

They key is to cooperate. When you come across an artifact, one player has to pick it up. While they are carrying it, they’re extremely vulnerable to attacks. Players will have to stay close and protect one another to win.

Lost Reavers also includes a new play-style system called the “Multi-View Action System.” This allows players to take on both a third-person and first-person shooting mode. In some cases, the character you’re controlling will specialize in shooting. If that’s the case, switching viewpoints can give you a more accurate shot.

Switching to first-person shooting mode can make shooting things easier.

Don’t let its free-to-play tag scare you, the game has been in open beta for two weeks, giving the developers plenty of time to fix and polish their game accordingly. While it may seem like a standard cooperative action game, it might just surprise you.

You can pick up Lost Reavers for free from today on the Nintendo e Shop!
