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....

AngelicIceDiamond2500d ago (Edited 2500d ago )

@Law Agreed.

8 player madness confirmed.

Lawboy22500d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

Yes indeed....I've never played a 8 player co op before...this will be my first

georgeenoob2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

Holy sh**. Hands down gonna be the best gameplay experience with 8 player coop in a game like that!

christocolus2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )


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.

shivvy242499d ago

Yes, had so much fun playing resistance 2 coop and if done right this will be awesome , eh its already awesome

jetlian2499d ago

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

GarrusVakarian2499d ago

Jesus....8 player co op? That is going to be insane. I don't even have 8 friends, lmao.

Volkama2499d ago

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.

mrpsychoticstalker2499d ago

Great, as much as I like playing sp games, the mp experience brings out the best of the best.


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.


"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.

Bigpappy2499d ago

Ghost Recon had that 8 player co-op on the original Xbox. Was great and I suspect this will be also.

Neoninja2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

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.

MajorGecko2499d ago

Ghost recon went up to 16 player co op I miss that game on the orig xbox

Bigpappy2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

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.

joab7772499d ago

Its like raiding or something. I wonder what other mmo attributes it may have like loot etc.

showtimefolks2499d ago

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

faysal2499d ago

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.

Ausbo2499d ago

Since Microsoft is helping fund and publish it, I doubt it comes to ps4. But who knows.

FanboyKilla2499d ago

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.

Either that or it was faked. It's not too difficult to edit but we will see come monday.

Delsin_Rowe2499d ago

No, you just going to called it duplicated or bad editing.

Kayant2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )


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.

JohnathanACE2499d ago

Great!! Now I just need to find 7 friends and I'm set!!

mattgdrums2499d ago

7 friends willing to buy an xbox one too, haha i got a couple friends but they all have PlayStation

TheRedButterfly2499d ago

Seems like we find ourselves in opposite situations. Good thing Sunset is coming to my console, otherwise I'd be effed.

AngelicIceDiamond2499d ago

8 player Co op damn that's more than TF's player count.

ginsunuva2499d ago

Resistance 2 had 8plyr coop

mattgdrums2499d ago

resistance 2 was really fun wish i kept my ps3

joab7772499d ago

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?

truefan12499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

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.

memots2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

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

pyramidshead2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

it's truefan1 lol. Pretty standard bs from the likes of him.
