Killer Queen Black Now Supports Local 8-Player Games

The latest patch is now live.


Killer Queen Black has received a major new update, and it's brought some big changes with it. By far the biggest is the addition of local eight-player support on both PC and Switch, meaning that if you get eight people in a room they can all play the game together.

Patch 1.60, called the Hydra Update, also fixes bugs, shifts some UI elements, and adds a new Streamer mode, among other changes. Here's the full list of changes.
