Screencheat makes it necessary to screenwatch


Emma Clark

Local multiplayer gaming often results in arguments over screenwatching, but Screencheat makes it essential to do just that.

Screencheat will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 1st and looks to fix the bigget problem with playing competitive shooters in split-screen.

Countless arguments have broken out about screenwatching when playing split-screen multiplayer games, but in Screencheat it's not only encouraged, but actually required. Characters are invisible, so the only way you'll know where and when to attack is by watching other players' viewpoints.

The game supports local and online play for 2-8 players. To cater for an online audience, the game still displays their screen as if they were in the same room as you.

Screencheat was originally launched in 2014, but its upcoming console release comes with a wealth of new content, including AI bots, six new maps, two new weapons, and team-based modes.

You can see how Screencheat plays in the wonderful trailer below.
