Hi Guys,

Thanks for varion :p. We have many features which you can't really experience in sp need to be in-game such as the health regeneration also all weapons work maybe you never went over the weapon pickups correctly sometimes they are abit buggy.

They don't develop Sven Coop 2 because they think the people won't need it because they already have synergy and obsidian conflict but they really don't have to be afraid. If they make a few good maps everyone will play it, at least because the name is so popular.
