Based on the upcoming movie, Activision has announced the official game for Monsters vs. Aliens. The game puts players in the role of five different monsters as they try to save the world from certain doom at the hands of the Aliens. Sounds scary right? Well it's not, the movie and the game are a very light hearted experience that's perfect to play with the whole family. And luckily, you can do just that has Monsters vs. Aliens supports a 2 player co-op mode with drop in and drop out support.
