The residents of the quiet village Untitled Goose Game takes place in are about to be in a whole lot more trouble. An upcoming update to the game will allow a second player to join in the chaos, which releases alongside the Steam and itch.io versions of the game.
Untitled Goose Game has a simple yet highly enjoyable premise. Players control a goose, and it's the goose's job to cause all varieties of low-class mayhem around a quaint little village. It's a fun experience, but wouldn't it be more fun with a friend? That's just what developer House House is adding in a new update, which will let another player take control of another goose (which upon closer inspection might have a sock puppet face) to hassle the poor villagers. This local multiplayer will let players play through the entire game with a friend and get into all types of antics, including having one goose ride in a box while another pulls it. The multiplayer update will work on every system.
Speaking of consoles and systems, another important bit of news regarding Untitled Goose Game is the release of the Steam and itch.io version. In a tweet released alongside the multiplayer trailer, House House announced that these two virtual game stores will also be selling Untitled Goose Game soon. How soon? How about the same day that the multiplayer update is released?
The multiplayer update for Untitled Goose Game will release September 23, along with a Steam and itch.io release that the same day. Meanwhile, both physical versions of the game's Switch port, one of which makes use of recycled materials, will release September 29.
