So aside from Serious Sam II, are there any pc games on the horizon that will be offering co-op? I was counting on Stalker but the last I read it sounds like it won’t be shipping with it. I’m also one of the few who loved Dungeon Siege co-op, and eagerly await DS II, but even though I’m assuming it will support it I haven’t read anything official yet.
I know about Sven’s HL2 co-op mod but I doubt that will ship with the game. I also keep hoping that someone does a full campaign co-op mod for Far Cry. That game would kick ass in co-op.
So what else? A Doom III mod eventually? Diablo III???

Hum? I have to say, I always suspected it to be one of the features that won’t make it into the final game “due to time constraints” or something - announced shortly before the release - still, in the most recent preview I read they still were talking about it. Where did you read that?
Am I correct in saying that the Hidden and Dangerous 2 expansion, Sabre Squadron, won’t be including the promised co-op? Pretty sure I read it over at Blues. It’s the one thing that’s stopped me from buying H&D2.
Gathering, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: TTWO), today announced that it will release Hidden & Dangerous 2: Sabre Squadron, a new expansion disk for its hit WWII PC title Hidden & Dangerous 2 this fall. Sabre Squadron features nine new single-player campaign missions in four new locations plus the added ability to play all of these nine missions cooperatively over the Internet.
As a codicil to this topic, can anyone reccomend some good (better yet, great) co-op games for consoles? I’m getting my fiancee into gaming, but she doesn’t have any of her own consoles, so she’s only interested if we can play together. I’ve got some of the usual suspects - champions of norrath, fallout:bos, hunter and its sequels - but what else is out there? I could use suggestions, to keep me from buying shit like the “buffy” game, which claimed ot have co-op play, and turned out to have nothing but a ridiculously lame deathmatch mode.
A bunch of us from a forum here in NZ have been playing a LOT of co-op Raven Shield recently, mostly Terrorist Hunt, and it’s superb. I’m broadband impaired, but the other guys are all running Ventrilo for voice comms.
Raven Shield is great as most people have managed to get a bundled copy with whatever piece of hardware they’ve purchased recently (vid card, sound card etc.). No-one is really bothering with the expansion.
Raven Shield (on the PC, at least) is really, really good as a coop game – terrorist hunt is a blast. Note, though, if you’re used to UT and Quake, the tactical shooter style of game takes a bit of adjustment.
