H&D2 expansion co-op plans confirmed

Level designer chirps up.

Illusion Softworks has confirmed that a co-operative multiplayer mode will make it into the developer's expansion pack for Hidden & Dangerous 2, as mooted in an interview at the end of October.

However a patch will not be made available to rectify its absence in Hidden & Dangerous 2 itself. In the words of level design Martin Babarik, "It would be very difficult to re-make the current missions from Hidden & Dangerous 2 to use the co-op mode because it would mean making extensive changes to the code."

Speaking to C&VG today, Babarik revealed that the expansion pack will feature approximately half the number of missions in H&D2 and will be released in Q2 2004.
