Another way is to carve or blast through rock to create different paths in the fully destructible environment. Players can also engage in a tactical squad play in up to four players local co-op. Another factor is the player’s chosen character. In early access release, Gerty presents four distinct characters each with their own playstyle and unique skills. The player can further customize their gameplay with perks and purchasable gear. The mines hold pockets of valuable Juice crystals, which players can gather and convert into items and upgrades.
