Quantum Theory multiplayer detailed

Tecmo Koei’s sent out first details on Quantum Theory‘s online multiplayer modes this morning. The Japanese third-person shooter is scheduled to arrive on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year. Set in a moving tower, which are the last remnants of civilization, the player’s goal is to destroy the tower for a revenge that will become clear throughout the course of the game.

The online multiplayer modes revealed today are as followed:

  • Dead or Alive – this is team deathmatch (with a shoutout to Tecmo Koei’s Dead or Alive series in its title). Players are separated into two teams and kill each other to rack up points. Whichever team has the most points at the end of the match wins.
  • Executioner – this is deathmatch. Same concept as team deathmatch, minus the teams. Ten minute rounds determine the winner with the most points at the end.
  • Guardian – players are separated into two teams. Each team has a female “leader” character. You’re goal is to fight the other team while keeping your “leader” female from dying. As long as she’s alive, players can continue to respawn.

They’re may be more online modes, however, this is all that’s been sent out today.

Thanks, 1UP. (via e-mail tip from Andrea)
