New Mercs 2 co-op shots

Because two players are better than one

EA has released a new batch of Mercenaries 2 screens, this time with a co-op flavour.

It wasn't too long ago that we caught up with senior producer Jonathan Zamkoff, who was happy to talk co-op and about why it's important to the sequel. He says it's "critical".

"It's one of the features that's just untouchable in the game," Zamkoff told us. "We have to make it work, it has to be great and we have to make it balanced, so that another player can hop in and out and it feels like the difficulty is adjusted." Pretty important then.
