Please tell me this will have co op
I would love to have a friend fighting by my side. I have constant LAN parties thats great fun. I feel any game is more injoyable playing with a friend or friends in the same room. Not only do we benefit from co op but so does the develipers as I must now buy more then one copy of the game. Will this game have co op? Online or local area network I dont care. By co op I mean versus AI not player versus player thats called multiplayer. Its funny how develipers say co op but its pvp only, makeing it not co op but multiplayer.

Here's some Info, When you join up with another (host) player, then you are playing in their sandbox. There is so much to do in The Mandate without necessarily advancing the main story line so we do not think this will be a huge problem. Think about it, you each have your own sandbox which is part of a big big galaxy and so it really fits in with the idea behind the game that you are not the only Chosen One. The Empress is fully aware that some of the Corsairs should probably have stayed in jail and she is not putting all her eggs in the same basket

They've said Coop will allow up to six players and their ships to play together online and over a LAN. The idea of five other ships played by friends rolling up on a pirate group is thrilling. Trying to decide what type of specialization I'd want my ship to have. Carrier? Bombardment? Troop ship designed soley for boarding ops? The possibilities!

Yep there will be strong co-op support. In fact, their original plan outlined a FOCUS on co-op play, however I believe they dialed back the main focus as many backers expressed concern over a game that was balanced around co-op , which would make it much more difficult to play solo. This is by far the most open I've ever seen a Dev when it comes to interacting with their fans. So excited.
