Anarchy Reigns gets multiplayer trailer for Gamescom

Anarchy Reigns is the directorial debut of Platinum Games' Masaki Yamasaka – but anyone concerned that the studio's well-established brand of mental-as-anything action might be subdued for Yamasaka's first time at the head need look only at this clip for reassurance. Not only does the game's horde mode – an increasingly ubiquitous element within multiplayer, and deservedly so – look satisfyingly hectic, but the PvP modes are equally relentless in their insanity...

While this trailer is heavy on fighting dirty and pulverizing the vulnerable, keep this in mind wherever you go: there's always a bigger fish. It's fair to say this Anarchy Reigns trailer has taught us all something today.

    Uber Hyped for this now! The Sruvival mode looks awesome, especially if you can have, like, 8 or 16 people in one lobby against hundreds of enemies at once, and things like the Big Fish mode seem to be taking a leaf out of AssCree Brotherhood's book. Oh, but one thing I do want: ANNOUNCE FUCKING BAYONETTA ALREADY!

    Looking forward to this very much! Platinum can do no wrong!

    @gelatinbomination - I doubt a death grenade will do anything against an Einhander knock-off, a black pimp with golden, burning fists and a bull-man sporting more metal scraps for armor than Marcus Fenix. ReCAPTHA: Lemons neresa. Sounds like a mixer

    Still pretty hyped for this game, if for anything I've loved the music in all the trailers. I'm still worried the PvP stuff will be a little broken, but it looks like fun regardless and I usually enjoy co-op modes more anyway.

    Not just an ordinary grenade, but a DEATH grenade. Scary.
