Astute Co-Optimus forum reader Tino got his latest issue of Game Informer magazine. The cover exclusive is details and screenshots of the upcoming Bioshock sequel called Bioshock 2: Sea of Dreams.
While the cover had a major revelation of showing off the new female "Big Daddy" units called "Big Sisters" - there was another gem hidden between the pages. That gem is co-op gameplay. There's no details yet on what exactly the co-op entails, and or how it will play into the story. Hopefully it won't just be a Big Daddy and Little Sister mini game.
Bioshock was released in 2007 on the Xbox 360 and PC to critical acclaim winning over a dozen game of the year awards. It was later released on the PlayStation 3 and the series has gone on to sell over 2.5 million copies. Bioshock 2 is confirmed for all three platforms. Needless to say, we're excited about the prospect of co-op!
Update: It looks like at least part of the information on the net is untrue. No word on what exactly is what yet. GameInformer has responded.
