In advance of an upcoming closed beta, The Behemoth has released a rundown of the multiplayer modes we can expect to see in BattleBlock Theater.

Along with more traditional offerings like King of the Hill, Muckle (deathmatch), and Challenge (time trial), BattleBlock Theater also includes modes like Soul, which challenges you to protect your character's spiritual essence while stealing opposing players' souls for your team.

Other modes include Color the World (color more blocks than the other team), Ball Game (a basketball variant), Horse (steal and ride the opposing team's horse back to your own stable), and Grab the Gold (self-explanatory). All game types are playable in both co-op and versus multiplayer modes.

A release date for BattleBlock Theater has not been announced.
