For those who missed out on the announcement trailer, Knight Squad is being described as a SNES era Bomberman meets Gauntlet and will feature between one and eight players. Players can either play in a versus mode or co-op together to defeat the challenges laid on every floor of Destiny's Tower.

For those who don't exactly have eight players to fill out their roster, developers Chainsawesome have said that Bots will fill in the empty spots. When playing in co-op, the goal can range from surviving waves of enemies to protecting an objective or taking down a boss and "more". Versus mode will feature some classic game modes like Capture the Flag, Last Man Standing, and Free For All Grail as well as a Soccer Game and (of course) more! Online multiplayer is also promised along with a choice of weapons that include long swords, bows and arrows, drills, laser guns, crossbows, and (of course) more being planned.
