  • Teamplay – Players can now pick to join one of the 4 colored teams (Blue, Yellow, Pink, or Green) for combinations of 2v2, 2v1 or even 3v1 matches.
  • Four New Gameplay Modes
    • Static Bounce (Redesigned BlowBack) – Create deadly electric orbs by running into opponents and knocking them into these death orbs
    • Building Blocks – Build a stairway to heaven by placing blocks above the character to avoid the floors of death below
    • Detonation Zone – Drop bombs that grow in size over time and avoid the increased blast radius of the explosion
    • Super Hot – Inspired by the hit indie shooter, avoid the randomly spawning red bullets that move when characters move
  • Two Mutators Added– Spice up games modes with these new Mutators:
    • Life Hug – Health only regenerates when players bump into each other
    • Confusion – All on-screen text is scrambled
  • Seven New Characters – Players will exult with glee with the wickedly charming new characters that include a purple octopus, a gingerbread thing, and a jalapeno wearing a luchador mask.

  • Improved Online Matchmaking – Vastly improved automated matchmaking and server ping display in the server browser.

Move or Die is not just the title of the game, but a fundamental gameplay rule: gamers who fail to move will see their health bar diminish rapidly. Players will battle each other in an ever-growing list of mini-game modes that change every 20-30 seconds. Each challenge has its own outrageous level design and rule set to promote hours of laughter and good old friendship-destroying fun. Win battles and unlock insane new character skins, Mutator game modifiers that dramatically change how mini-games are played, and even crazier game modes. When gamers are done beating friends on the couch, jump online and challenge other players to see who will rage-quit first.
The ‘Non-Denominational Winter Holiday Update’ will be available on December 20 with a future promotion planned to celebrate its launch. Move or Die is available now on Steam for $14.99 with console versions launching in 2017.
