i did play this beta for more than 3 hours and there are two MP modes.
4player on a arena (gladiator style) or
8player on 2 teams in a multi level and objectives oriented arena
both are very good and entertaining
there are lots of upgrades for weapons, armor, magic, special abilities, etc.
who else is playing it too, and are surprised on how good and fun it is?
