Close Combat: First to Fight Co-op Announced

Global Star Software/Take 2 Interactive announces some multiplayer details for Close Combat: First to Fight, the U.S. Marine Corps shooter in the works at Destineer Studios. Those details include word on the rare-but-beloved coop support. There are movies and screenshots showing off multiplayer play on 3D Gamers and Gamer's Hell. Here is the announcement:
As you might expect from a team-based game like First to Fight, the emphasis in multiplayer is on co-op play. While there's team based deathmatch, the real meat of multiplayer is the ability to play through the entire single player campaign via co-op. You can do so via online and LAN on PC, and via split screen or Xbox Live on Xbox.

But that's just a glimpse at the cool multiplayer features. Just wait until you try out some of the more advanced options, like one mode where your entire team has a "life pool" that limits the total number of respawns. Needless to say, it makes the game much more intense.

I can understand the disappointment at the new direction for Close Combat but what the hell, people?

They announced co-op because they're (gasp) supporting it. This just put the game on my radar. That's the point of the announcement. Job well done - at least in my case as a prospective buyer. Haven't played a truly great coop game since H&D, Urban Ops, and SS.

Yeah yeah, another marine FPS. Well, the graphics look good enough, and if the gameplay is there (random spawns, tight feel) it'll hopefully give us a lot to play with (especially with a level editor!). Hell, at this point I'd play Candyland 2: Sugar Shield (the FPS) if it had good co-op.

edit: clarification
