E3 2003 – First Look
The original Hidden & Dangerous took squad-based co-op
action to new heights back when it was released, and its sequel looks to repeat
that success. Hidden & Dangerous 2 combines elements from 1st and 3rd person
based shooters and adds a co-operative element similar to SOCOM or Ghost Recon.
You can play the co-op campaign or do the same campaign
with computer controlled allies. The preview build I saw featured some really
impressive textures, and also had a dynamic 3D map camera, with which you could
scope out your enemies position and watch them for patterns. The game also
promises to have use of vehicles and some other interesting gameplay elements.
Hidden & Dangerous 2 comes out this October, so start
polishing your team skills.
