Ngmoco's Eliminate Pro to Get Co-Op Mode [Update: Co-op Video]

EDIT (21/02/2010): Co-op Video


MWSF 2010: Ngmoco's Eliminate Pro to Get Co-Op Mode

While attending Macworld San Francisco 2010, we managed to take some time to stop by the Ngmoco offices to see what they had in the works. The first update they revealed is that their popular first person shooter Eliminate Pro will be getting a new mode of play in version 1.2.

In addition to Deathmatch, Ngmoco will be adding Co-Op play which will allow two players to work as a team to take on battle drones. As the story goes, Arsenal Megacorp has become infested with rogue battle drones and your job is to clear the infested facilities.

At least two new maps will be introduced alongside Co-Op mode and you and a parter will be fighting off 3 different types of droids as well as bosses. Your job is to survive and clear out the drones before time runs out (3 minutes). Co-Op mode carries over your same equipment and armor as Deathmatch mode, but also adds a "loot" dropping system where droids may leave behind items beyond the usual credit drops. While many of these items may be short lived prototype weapons or armor, the rare loot drop may provide you with a persistent item to keep.

Players can play with a friend or get thrown into the usual matchmaking system. Meanwhile, Enemy droid capabilities scale to your skill level to keep things interesting.

The 1.2 update is said to be nearing completion and should be ready in the next couple of weeks. Eliminate Pro remains a free to download game.
