Hot on the heels of EA confirming the game are the first details from Dead Space 3. They come from IGN, who note that there is drop-in drop-out cooperative gameplay in the upcoming sequel.
The site notes that series protagonist Isaac is joined by another man in an engineering suit. He has red glowing eyes, and works as a guide in single-player. Players will work together by sharing ammo and healing each other. Co-op will also make use of improved telekinesis power to solve puzzles as well as interact with the environment.
IGN has further information on changes made to the bench, enemies (humans!), weapons, and more.
Renowned game composer Jesper Kyd has composed the “dark and distorted” soundtrack for Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, an upcoming co-op action game from IO Interactive, the creators of the Hitman series. The game will be available next month for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Known best for its success on old-school 2D shooter Alien Hominid, The Behemoth has announced its next game: Castle Crashers, a 2D cooperative beat-’em-up game with gameplay similar to classics such as Streets of Rage and Double Dragon. Set in a medieval world, the game will be available on Xbox Live Arcade sometime next year and will offer co-operative play between 4 gamers.
