I hope FC4's co-op isn't like Assassin's Creed 5's bullshit co-op missions crap. It's really grating how they'll now use "co-op" as a feature bulletpoint when it's essentially tacked on separate co-op missions.

Makes sense for AC. Missions should be designed with co-op in mind, and it's unreasonable to expect a full campaign that works equally well with sp and co-op in a game of that nature. Especially with the hack designers behind it

Here... I think they could have done better, but I'll take it.

They always say that everyone's good at something...

I just have to find the right kind of place that appreciates nude juggling of a midget, a hand grenade, and a porcupine while playing the kazoo and riding a unicycle backwards without a seat

That sounds kinda terrible actually. When I play proper campaign co-op games, I head over to my friend's place and we blow through the entire campaign together to enjoy the story, scripted events, etc.

If all that stuff is turned off in FC4, what's the point?

I dunno, ask Ubisoft. It's a damn sight better than FC3's co-op, however.

I like the sand box look of it. I usually like to team kill my coop partners alot till they start squealing like little girls.

Saint's Row got it right, and improved from one game to the next, to where you almost NEED a second player for SR4.

Anyway, they confirm this is campaign co-op, it'll be the first game I've bought day-one in years.

I played all the way through SR4 and don't remember feeling like I NEEDED another player at any point. I saw some side missions that looked like they required a second player but I never bothered with those.

Played almost the whole game with a friend and then also solo'd it. Was a blast both ways. The tower assault near the end with the tanks and what not, was nice to have help....

Far Cry 3 had co-op as well, but it was a separate part of the game. Unless they specifically say "Campaign Co-op", I will believe it's a bullshit side-game. SO many games tossed out "co-op!" on the package, only to find it meant something different from expected.

The FC4 trailer specifically says that it's drop-in co-op, and what it does is just deactivate the single player/campaign missions, but everything else is open. So the fortresses, hunts, etc. and all that stuff counts towards your completion.

More interesting is the news that, apparently, on the PS4, you can co-op FC4 with people who don't own the game.

Uh, in the E3 video they specifically said "Drop in coop"

I believe they also mentioned sandbox co-op and not campaign-level.

SR4 it was necessary for some side missions, but other than that, I wouldn't say I ever felt a need for co-op in it. The game was fairly easy, since you play a god.

Wait, edit, I forgot I owned the Hail to the Chief version, which came with an insta-kill weapon.
