If you played Wil Wright's Spore, you may have been disapointed with the game's lack of actual gaming -- it's more like a toy, actually. But Darkspore promises more, including 4-player co-op. While the game is playable as a single, the best experience is for groups.
"The game really shines in co-op," explains Darkspore's gameplay engineer Michael Arsers. "You get bigger challenge, and the abilities combo together really well, so you can have one guy throw down a root, and another gut throw out an AOE."
Sounds interesting...and when you find out that Left 4 Dead's AI director helped with this game, it sounds like a must-have. Check out the interview below.
