Eight player Co-op has been confirmed for Sunset Overdrive thanks to the Xbox web-page. The following confirmation can be found here at this link and below:
Oh I'm so hyped for this....I am so looking forward to seeing what they offer for MP...this game is going to be so great....
@Law Agreed. 8 player madness confirmed.
Yes indeed....I've never played a 8 player co op before...this will be my first
Holy sh**. Hands down gonna be the best gameplay experience with 8 player coop in a game like that!
@angelic Wth? Is it E3 already? its like waking up on a christmas morning and seeing presents all over the house. This is such good news. They could have waited a few more hours before announcing this. I'm so hyped for this game.
Yes, had so much fun playing resistance 2 coop and if done right this will be awesome , eh its already awesome
looking at reveal trailer you can see other people helping him out. I figured it was 4 player coop based on that. Either way this looking good. This one better not slip into next year if I.S. smart
Jesus....8 player co op? That is going to be insane. I don't even have 8 friends, lmao.
If it is 8 players free roaming and the map still has AI in it like normal then that's thanks to dedicated server support... Aka the "power of the cloud". Which is why they haven't been talking about it prior to E3. Funny how much information leaks from official sources that just aren't on the same page as the rest of the team.
8 player Co-op. Not bad.
Great, as much as I like playing sp games, the mp experience brings out the best of the best. @lukaz That's sad.
If done right you can pour hours into something like Co-op in these types of games. This should fit very nicely with constant on the fly updates done through the cloud. http://www.computerandvideo... "It will also allow us to have quicker production cycles, enabling timely content updates for new weapons, characters, storylines and even pop culture-relevant content like memes based on social commentary." So this game will have never have dull moments especially with 8 player Co op.
Ghost Recon had that 8 player co-op on the original Xbox. Was great and I suspect this will be also.
I had no idea Ghost Recon had 8 player co-op! I imagine that was a lot of fun. In regards to Sunset Overdrive, well this game just keeps getting better and better in my eyes! This one is going to be a blast to play! Pappy what the heck happened to your bubs? You're not a troll and all the comments I see from you are respectful. You should have way more than 2.
Ghost recon went up to 16 player co op I miss that game on the orig xbox
I will use the last one to say than you Neoninja. I am plain spoken and not a person to conform to get treated nicely. Saying that "Xbone" was derogatory and those who use it intend it that way caused me about 4 bubbles. I am fine with that. I still hold my opinion and those who didn't like what I had to say got to restrict my speech. So I say less but the content is the same. MajorGecko is correct. Actually 16 player co-op. But I only had 6 or 7 close friends who had an Xbox. Yeah, Ghost had the best online co-op missions and I still miss them to date. I used to play with my brothers and friends, and we would play without drones or enemy discovery radar (we did get to see where the enemies were unless we could actually see them). This game looks to be fast paced mayhem and should make for some fun moments with the crazy weapons. Here is hopping you can actually clear and area and they don't just keep re-spawning. I like to accomplish and keep it moving. But if not, it is not a deal breaker.
Its like raiding or something. I wonder what other mmo attributes it may have like loot etc.
one of the best co-op i ever played was in resistance 2. It was truly sad when Insomniac announced that it wouldn't be returning for Resistance 3(which is one of the main reason IMO it failed) insomniac are awesome, xbox fans are in for a treat
man this is epic. i wish i had a xbox to play this game :( hope it comes to ps4 at some point :) dont hate on me, we are all gamers.
Since Microsoft is helping fund and publish it, I doubt it comes to ps4. But who knows.
I'm truly hyped now https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I have a feeling this is going to be fuc*ing AWESOME. 8 player co op? Wow. Pvp multiplayer, check. Campaign, check. Nice ms i see you, you go boy.
So this leaked?
Either that or it was faked. It's not too difficult to edit but we will see come monday.
No, you just going to called it duplicated or bad editing.
@Delsin_Rowe Looooool nice. Maybe submit things properly next time ;) And it wasn't me that failed it or called it a dup but whatever simulates your salty tears. Edit - Ha it's real source was neogaf I think. Good to see can't wait to it in action come monday.
Great!! Now I just need to find 7 friends and I'm set!!
7 friends willing to buy an xbox one too, haha i got a couple friends but they all have PlayStation
Seems like we find ourselves in opposite situations. Good thing Sunset is coming to my console, otherwise I'd be effed.
8 player Co op damn that's more than TF's player count.
Resistance 2 had 8plyr coop
resistance 2 was really fun wish i kept my ps3
And it was the best co op ever. I wonder why no one has ever copiedor evolved that dynamic gameplay. You had 3 classes that u leveled and each time u played the enemies would spawn in different places. I loved it!!!! But is it worth buying an xbone for?
Pack it up and move along, this will be one of the best games of 2014. BOOK IT. This is one of the main reasons I game on XB1, I can game alone and with friends. I used to have 3+ hour (breaks included) Zombies sessions in COD and this will be even better with 8 people. WOW, 8 people in an open world co-op sounds fantastic.
why restrict yourself and try 8 players coop in Resistance 2, You that dev you suddenly praise use to make games on other console .. i know... shocking
it's truefan1 lol. Pretty standard bs from the likes of him.
Great news. I just love these MS exclusives with co ops and online play, making my Live Gold subscription get the most out of its value. Can't wait for this game.
We get it its a Xbox exclusive , no need to point out the obvius
Cool your jets bro. The guy is just saying that he appreciates the co-op in MS exclusive games because they add value to his Gold subscription. All Gears, Halo, Fable and Crackdown games have co-op.
Holy hell, YUM! Cant wait for this chaos lol. Ever single video/info that gets revealed about this game is just a home run. Cant wait for this, now i just need to decide if i wanna buy it digital or physical for that sick box art, decisions decisions...
As if I wasn't hyped enough for this game then I get this information good lord hype overload
Gotta be honest this is the one game, I wish was coming to ps4. Think I may after pick up a xbone, will make my decision after e3.
Yeah, but obviously Sony didnt payv them enough.
They prob thought MS was gonna be top dog, insomniac must be eating their hat to leave after being an exclusive dev for so long and thinking they would make more on the other side. on an off topic note: Its surprising that gave up so easily on a serious type of game with original resistance, was first serious type of game they made and they did a really good job with story and narration, despite what critics had said. The custcene narration and atmosphere they set up with rachel parker was top notch. Hope they do another game like RFOM.
When does this release?
It's supposed to release in either August or September if memory serves me correctly.
That sounds pretty awesome... I'm curious to see the how it'll work/play...
As a PS4 player im legitimately jealous at the 8 player co-op feature, especially since insomniac was a sony exclusive dev for so long. None of the upcoming sony exclusives so far have any type of coop and its annoying since I bought a second controller expecting some coop games. But instead all I can use it for is indies.
The MS rep that visited my local game stop broke this games replaybility factor down for a pre-order selling point.. He said think of an MMO when it has a seasonal event but think of that more frequently without waiting on everyone to download a patch. He went on to say the game is gorgeous but that the games true technical marvel is it's seamless ever changing world with something different every time you come back and becoming jealous you missed out on something your friend acquired it will make you not want to miss another one. I don't know how far Insomniac will support this title with this illusion of free dlc method but I'm guessing they're planning to build off expansion packs that will be embraced by usage of this cloud based strategy. It's ambitious...if it pans out as planned...I'll be impressed
$10 bucks says hes never seen the game and is reciting off a training manual, lol.
I remember having a blast with the co op in Resistance 2. this is one Xbox game I'm jealous of
This is awesome news! I love co op games, more than MP. I'm definitely getting this on day one.
If you had watched closely during the first couple trailers released, you would have clearly seen other players with name's (or placeholders) above their characters. So this is not surprising and everyone should have seen this coming. It's may even be a scenario where the city is always populated with real players, and you can decide to play single player, story driven missions, or join others in cooperative side-missions.
This will make the game infinitely more fun. Why didnt Sony do the same with the Order - that game looks amazing and Coop would have been great.
