Today in gaming: Starting this Monday, April 8, 2013, registered players of the Expansive Worlds online hunting title theHunter [sic] will have an opportunity to sign up for an alpha test of their new co-op version of the game. This multiplayer feature will allow gamers to go out together in hunting parties to bag deer and such.
Of course, there is also the possibility that theHunt could devolve into the greatest hardcore shooter in the history of gaming, with hunters actively stalking each other through the woods and building hides in trees just trying to keep alive. We'll see how it all plays out. I for one would gladly play this game if could go all Dick Chaney on the hunter next to me for making noise while I'm hunting grouse.
Expansive Worlds is an independent subsidiary of Avalanche Studios.
