Criminals Within Announced

New Zealand-based developer Space Rock Games announces Criminals Within, a third-person co-op (only) action/adventure. This debut from a studio comprising vets of the Fable series, Path of Exile, and Chivalry 2 is expected to come to PC and consoles later this year. A Reveal Trailer has a first look at what to expect, and there are details on Steam. Here's more on this game and its apparently mandatory co-op action:
Join forces with a friend and embark on an epic journey through a medieval fantasy land inhabited by powerful, de-evolved dragons. Unravel the mystery behind "The Wither," a deadly disease that is spreading throughout the kingdom, threatening its very existence.

Take on the role of Helena, a formidable royal guard with unmatched strength, and the roguish burglar Jarel, reluctantly roped into this quest. Explore treacherous caves and cursed jungles, seeking the lost prince Felix and working to bring an end to the ongoing conflict.

Criminals Within is developed by industry veterans who have previously worked on games such as Fable, Path of Exile, Black & White 2, Chivalry 2 and many others.
