Kiwi local party brawler Swordy now has a Missions mode.

Missions is an encounter-based progression mode that can be played solo or in co-op, allowing friends help rather than hurt each other in chaotic physics-based action.

So far the mission system consists of "Basic Training", "Forest Trial", and "Sword Challenge".

According to developer Frogshark, it is the framework on to which more encounters and scenarios will be added in the future.

The Missions update also adds locational damage (arms, legs, chest, and head) and plate armour to the game. Other types of armour are in the pipeline.

You can pick up Swordy via Steam Early Access for NZ$17.99.
