E3: KOEI reveals Legends of Troy

Four-player online co-op for PS3/360.

KOEI has unveiled PS3 and Xbox 360 game Warriors: Legends of Troy, which hopes to launch next spring.

It's a tactical action affair with online co-op for four players, both co-operatively and competitively. Sounds a bit like Dynasty Warriors but with a choice of Trojan or Greek forces rather than the Ancient Chinese.

The setting takes inspiration from Homer's epic poem The Iliad, which has been interpreted by many over the years, resulting in lots of wooden horses, muscular thighs and Brad Pitt, who pouts the good pout. We're told to expect plenty of larger-than-life characters and mythical creatures sent down by the gods.
