Renegade Ops was announced back in March, a downloadable vehicular shooter "all about driving or flying around blowing stuff up while playing with your friends" from the maker of Just Cause 2. Which sounded awfully exciting. Now the first proper in-game trailer and screenshots have been released, showing it does look like jolly good explosive fun.
Offering two-player split-screen and four-player co-op modes in addition to single-player, Renegade Ops will see players zooming around, exploding everything, to stop terrorist leader Madman Inferno from taking over the world.
It almost sounds like those fabled "good old days," when big developers felt no shame in making absurd fun games.
Developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Sega, Renegade Ops is scheduled for a downloadable release on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 some time this year.
Avalanche has described the game as its "first strategic step into the world of digitally downloaded games, but certainly not the last."
