So, there's going to be a new Gauntlet game. Warner Bros. Entertainment is rebooting the classic franchise with developer Arrowhead studios. The game is due to hit Steam this summer, and the following trailer provides a sense of what's in store.
The reboot looks fairly faithful to the original—or at least what I can remember of it. Four-player co-op is in, but there's no indication of whether the players need to be local or if they can connect remotely. This looks like it might be a lot of fun with four players sharing the same big-screen TV.
