Update: Looks as though the piece has been pulled. Can’t beat the internet, Capcom.
Update 2: PS3F’s got more. Apparently the co-op’s drop-in, like Gears of War. There are some spoilers through there about the story as well, so don’t go if your hymen needs to stay intact. Thanks, Blerk.
Oh daddy. According to this Gamesradar preview, upcoming super-hit Resident Evil 5 is to feature online co-op for two players.
The piece mentions a “player two” then later in the article states, “Currently nameless, the mercenary’s inclusion means that, for the first time, you’ll be able to tackle a true Resident Evil game cooperatively online.”
Hot diggedy. You’ve probably seen loads of reports going round about the game hitting this year: it isn’t. But we can so wait. Don’t forget the new video on May 30.

Teh internets aren’t happy. Apparently co-op play in EA’s Army of Two is region-locked, so Europeans can’t play with Americans.
The game’s instruction manual informs, “”NOTE: The online game modes in Army of Two are not cross region compatible and is only supported between PAL discs.”
No reason’s been given for the move, but apparently it applies to both PS3 and 360 versions. Just hope you don’t have too many American friends you want to play Army of Two with, innit.

According to this, Lego Indiana Jones will have four-player co-op “on the console versions”, and will hit the US on June 3, a week before the release of the new Indiana Jones film.
There’s loads of other stuff through that link, including details on the whip system for Wii and why the only difference between the enemies in the game and the Nazis in the films is that “the bad guys just won’t wear swastikas… The plot will stay intact.”
Xbox 360, PC, PS2, PS3, Wii, DS and PSP versions will all ship simultaneously. There’s no release date for Europe as yet, but will be seen at GDC later this week.

A decent sized video of Haze co-op play here, and it’s all looking promising enough. There seem to be some fantastic particle effects going on from explosions and smoke grenades, and news that the entire campaign can be played through with four players should pique interest of many thirsting for a new, proper, buddy-buddy experience after Gears of War. Haze, from Free Radical, is slated as a April-June 2008 release from Ubisoft.
