Left 4 Dead Announced

Valve and Turtle Rock Studios announce development of Left 4 Dead, a cooperative multiplayer action game using the Source engine that's slated for release next year:

November 20, 2006 - Turtle Rock Studios and Valve today announce Left 4 Dead, a co-operative multiplayer action game from the makers of Counter-Strike.

"By leveraging its industry-leading AI technology and years of Counter-Strike development experience, Turtle Rock is building upon the elements that make Counter-Strike successful and applying them to Left 4 Dead," said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. "What Counter-Strike did for multiplayer action games, Left 4 Dead will do for co-op games."

Left 4 Dead is built atop the most advanced version of the Source Engine and introduces version 2 of Turtle Rock's artificial intelligence (A.I.) technology.

Left 4 Dead will debut on the PC in 2007.

Considering that most of the games I listed were recent and a couple have yet to be released, I'd say it is a bandwagon. Co-op is becoming a new fad.

SWAT 3, SWAT 4, Rogue Spear, Raven-Shield, Lockdown, Ghost Recon, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Operation Flashpoint, Armed Assault, Rainbow Six: Vegas, Battlefield 2, Battlefield Vietnam, Battlefield 1942, Aliens vs. Predator, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down, NOLF 2, Line of Sight: Vietnam, The Regiment, Vietcong, Vietcong 2, Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood, Pariah, Thief: Deadly Shadows, Hidden and Dangerous, Hidden and Dangerous 2, SC:PT, SC:CT...

Frankly, I think the complaint that there aren't any co-op FPS games around is a load of crap. It's conspicuously missing from a few AAA titles (CoD and MoH series notably), but there's hardly been a lack of co-op support in games. It's also not something new or a "fad" by any means. The list I gave spans the last six to eight years.
