PS4's Resogun Rescues a Free Update Tomorrow, Adds New Trophies and Local Co-op

Boom, there it is
Despite the fact that Sony put a lot of stock into the PlayStation 4's retail launch line-up which included the likes of Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall, many of us were too busy being mesmerised by Resogun to take notice. The downloadable spaceship shooter from developer Housemarque even went on to win our award for Best PlayStation 4 Game of 2013.
Indeed, the incredibly pretty blast-'em-up has been available since the console launched last year, and now it's hoping to draw players back by gunning down a rather impressive update before the title's Heroes expansion becomes available for purchase. Hitting tomorrow night, the patch will implement several changes and throw in a few new features, most notably the ability to blow up some baddies with a friend as you both sit on your sofa. You'll also be able to have fun with a new ship editor, where you can customise your craft any way you want, block by block. And if that wasn't enough, the update even offers up some more trophies — what's not to like?
Unfortunately, there is some relatively bad news. The game's leaderboards will be wiped following the discovery of score exploits, and will start over once the patch goes live. Thankfully, the arrival of the Hall of Fame will act as an archive for those who achieved high scores through acceptable methods.
