Critical Studio's cooperative multiplayer title Dungeonland isn't quite ready to open the theme park's doors for the general public quite yet. Originally schedule for a January 22 release date, the game has now been delayed a week until January 29. An unfortunate delay, but only a short while as far as delays go. Before we know it, we'll each grouped up and tearing down Dungeonland one ride at a time.
Paradox Interactive issued the following statement, apologizing to fans for the short delay:
"As we continue our quest to ensure game experiences on day one are as pleasant as possible, we're making a few last minute updates before releasing the game to the masses. We work around the clock for our devoted community, and we appreciate everyone’s patience here as we get things finalized."
Normally you'd never see a game receive a delay as short as one week, since retail copies of game are usually sent out weeks in advance to launch. Dungeonland, however, will be a digital only title. As such, if there were a particular game breaking bug, serious connectivity issues or something of the like, a one week crunch before launch can go a long way.
Check out some game footage, plan a schedule out with some friends, and check out Dungeonland when it releases on PC January 29. Hopefully it delivers some great PC cooperative fun like we've been spoiled with from Magicka, Dungeon Defenders and others in recent years.
