SVENCO-OP TEAM ANNOUNCES SVEN CO-OP FOR HALF-LIFE 2
WAIKIKAMUKAU--July 2, 2003--The SvenCo-op Team announced today that Sven Co-op for Half-Life 2, sequel to the popular Half-Life co-operative modification, is currently in late planning stages. Valve Software, creators of Half-Life and its upcoming sequel, have recently expressed interest in helping the SvenCo-op team following the release of Half-Life 2.
“The team and I are currently working to finish the project design so we can immediately push forward once we get our hands on the SDK“ said Sven Viking, SC Team Leader. “We really feel that with Half-Life 2, we will be able to take co-operative gameplay to the next level.”
Sven Co-op, the original Half-Life co-operative mod, is currently the most popular co-operative modification in the world, with over 100,000 recorded downloads of the v2.0F installer.
Sven Co-op for Half-Life 2 will benefit not only from Half-Life 2’s highly advanced engine, greater volume of content and extensive feature set, but also from new and innovative gameplay resulting from four years of experience with the genre. Among the new features will be the ability for mapmakers to create their own game modes, and features to make gameplay more rewarding.
Work on Sven Co-op for Half-Life 2 will not impact the development of Sven Co-op 3.0 or the They Hunger Co-op conversion. Watch www.svencoop.com for news of these projects in the near future.
