Assault Heroes 2 in May

Or just leave them alone.

Sierra Online has revealed that Assault Heroes 2 will be released for Live Arcade on 14th May.

Developer Wanako will decorate the sequel with bigger weapons - and more of them - plus more destructible environments and a campaign about a third-longer than the original.

Levels are said to be more intricate and will appear in more three-dimensional way, with multiple routes to the bosses blocking your way.

On-foot sections have been tidied up, too, and you can do flashy Jack Bauer-like things such as roll out of the way of vehicles trying to hit you at 40.

Co-op for you and a friend is still in, and you can jump straight to stages you've beaten on your own to avoid replaying them in co-op to get to the same point. Activating linked weapons should be easier, too.

Tom thought Assault Heroes was one of the best original creations on Live Arcade since Geometry Wars. Pop over to his Assault Heroes review to find out more.
