In a blog post, Lab Zero announced that a new free update is coming to Indivisible, the developer’s metroidvania-inspired action platformer, on April 2. The update will add two new modes to Indivisible: new game plus and couch co-op.
Once you’ve completed Indivisible’s campaign at least once, NG+ allows you to replay the story from the very beginning with all the abilities, weapons, and incarnations you unlocked in your previous playthrough. This will allow you to discover hidden secrets much earlier in the campaign as well as access shortcuts that require late-game abilities. Enemies and bosses will be a lot stronger though.
Couch co-op mode allows you to tackle Indivisible’s campaign with up to three other players. Player 1 will always be protagonist Ajna, but the other three can take control of any of the other members of your party. While exploring, each player will be able to move independently of each other. In battle, you’ll each control your individual character in the game’s hybrid of turn-based and real-time combat.
How To Access Indivisible’s New Modes
- After downloading the update, if you’ve previously completed Indivisible, look for and press the “Game Clear” button
- If it does not appear, you will need to complete the final challenge of the game and watch the credits, even if you previously completed the game
- When prompted, save your game into one of the save slots
- The next time you open the Load Game menu, you’ll see a new button appear in the save slot.
- Press the button
- Plug in 1-3 extra controllers
- Press an attack button
In GameSpot’s Indivisible review, Michael Higham wrote, “I want to love Indivisible unconditionally; it has so many great pieces, and it’s a special thing to feel seen. I’m happy to have a game that’s distinctly Southeast Asian, giving some earnest representation to a part of the world I belong to and one I’m even more curious about now. As a whole, it sometimes doesn’t come together; it’s missing weight to its narrative and the challenges necessary to flex its wonderful combat system. But it stands out as an RPG that’s doing something genuinely different, and it brings joy to its clever platforming with the tune of an infectious soundtrack. For all its faults, Indivisible has its heart in the right place.”
