Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios is no stranger to destruction, action and general mayhem, so for its next project, the studio will be teaming up with SEGA for a brand new IP, which is a suitably action-packed military co-op shooter called Renegade Ops.
Placing players in a mobile commando unit, Renegade Ops sends you behind enemy lines in an effort to topple Inferno, a megalomaniacal madman intent on - you guessed it - taking over the world. Using a range of tooled-up vehicles able to dispense electromagnetic shockwaves or blast enemies with Gatling gun fire, you'll be able to go it alone or team up with a buddy in local splitscreen co-op or online for a dynamic 4-player co-op experience.
“Renegade Ops is Avalanche Studios’ first strategic step into the world of digitally downloaded games, but certainly not the last. With a strong foundation in our unique technology, we can allow our teams working on digitally downloaded games to unleash their creativity,” commented Linus Blomberg, Executive Producer at Avalanche Studios.
“Renegade Ops is SEGA’s first new IP on the digital space and we are thrilled with the remarkable visual look and extensive features that the game has to offer. It has been a great opportunity to work with a team as successful as Avalanche Studios,”commented Haruki Satomi, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA. “Playing Renegade Ops with friends will be a hugely enjoyable experience which will stand out above other multiplayer online co-op games.”
Renegade Ops is scheduled to blow stuff up on the Xbox Live Arcade in autumn 2011.
