Well I heard from somewhere multiplayer, but nothing about co-op.

Yes. On an interview, they gave a hint about multiplayer, but nothing about co-op.

Well nothing is confirmed, but there are rumors about "online support", which makes me think multiplayer. Dunno if it will be co-op or competitive though. Some kind of "horde mode" like from Gears of War 2 where you and a friend take on waves of enemies would be pretty fun.

Hmm, but then it would kinda ruin the fun of Single Player, pwning everybody by yourself. I would be all for a MP though, if it was made Jedi Knight Style.

I vote both. But I'm going to agree with Jeff, an individual co-op mode would be best.

If you do co-op, who plays along side Starkiller?

I think Co-op would be pointless...Starkiller is already incredibly powerful and works best without any distractions. I do really like the idea of multi-player like Jedi Academy.

We know they started multi-player for TFU 1 so I presume they will have it in TFU 2

What?

You do realise we are not talking about storywise, but about game modes, right?

The Wii version of FU1 had multiplayer. It was called "Two Player Duel Mode" though. I only want multiplayer in FU2 though.

What enemies would you fight on co-op? It would be ridiculous...take down a AT-AT, 2 star destroyers, few hundred stormtroopers, some shadow troopers, darktroopers, incendiary troopers, commanders, a rancor, and a group of very angry mandalorians.

Co-op:
I think co-op would be pretty exciting. You know, a friend comes over, you put on ForceUnleashed2 and you're able to choose between campaign or just mission. That gameplay style is from Lord of the Rings 3 : Return of the King, and it was really cool! You could play campaign missions (there were more enemies than in singleplayer ) or just a selected area full of incoming enemies.

Multiplayer:
I don't really care about multiplayer, but I think people would wanna see it in. I'd like to see some modes like Team Deathmatch or Siege, where the player would choose their jedi character and join the fight.

Why? For the people who want co-op they should put it in. If you don't want to play co-op then don't play it.

Co-op is so retarded, it should stay only with Lego Star Wars. TFU is meant to be a Single player game, not a two-player jockey. Now multiplayer I am liking, but only if it is Jedi Knight style. Hands down, we still love serving the massive pwnage like in the old Jedi Outcast.

Who is to say the TFU is meant to be SP or MP? LA can do whatever they want with it!

Personally, I love co-op games and I hope TFU 2 will have the option to play in co-op.

TFU has an engine which works only with SP, if they did co-op, they would have to do an entirely new engine. Plus sp you don't really have too much distractions and whenever I play co-op other people just screw around so for me, SP is the way to go for TFU. Plus the engine of TFU was part of why TFU was so likeable. More popularity means more profit for LA which is what the whole company is all about.

I wouldn't mind if TFU had a multiplayer mode, maybe that would be a different way of play, but the way I see it the best way they can do it is Jedi Knight Style, because still so many player play JKII and JKA multiplayer online with others, with different types of matches. Because the costumes and the different saber colors suggest they would do a Jedi Knight Style multiplayer, as this game was fast paced and had select abilities per button, which is what Jedi Knight did in the first place. This all the more suggests it probably would be Jedi Knight Style multiplayer.

Also seeing the main character wielding two lightsabers, there may be a possibility that there will be the twin-blades as well, like Jedi Academy where you can build a single hilt, two single hilts, or twin blades.

Right... Lego Star Wars was co-op and was not a fail, NSMB was co-op and was not a fail. Your point?

A game may have co-op, yet you can play it singleplayer.

1. Did you not read that I said it was my opinion?

2. Source? Examine the freaking engine, TFU's engine is very similar to Jedi Knight. The movement, fast paced, power/ability arrangement, a lot more suggests it.

3. Co-op games fail at single player. You have to have some useless bot following you which doesn't do **** to help you when your in a jam. Represented in Lego Star Wars and Republic Heroes

I very much doubt there will be a co-op mode, but MP sounds very likely. Although I would love a co-op mode as well, anyone remember the epicness of Jedi Power Battles co-op?

Not necessarily. Look at all of the Halo games. You can play co-op in all of them but if you play SP then there isn't any extra AI.

Co-op could be done by having player 1 control starkiller normally while P2 has some other extra functions.
Maybe a little combat drone...or maybe tagging enemies for combo's. But that's a far stretch.

Multiplayer will probably be a duelling mode.
Maybe they could add a face/clothing editor to create your own Jedi and have a Jedi Outcast/Jedi Academy multiplayer with TFU graphics en physics. Would be awesome.
So I'm guessing Multiplayer only.

Nice topic btw. Co-op in a Star Wars game. Worthwhile to think about.

If it was ever going to be a co-op i think it would be sweet as if Vader , The Emperor and Starkiller had a mission where they went to wipe out some wookies lol (everyone bags the wookies) would be cool to have them both at your side kicking hairy wookie but

Hmmm...do I smell Survival Mode?
On Kashyyk, fighting undenging waves of Wookiees with famous characters...
Non-canon as hell, but frying, slashing, teabagging Wookiees sounds awesome!

I go for just multiplayer...But this time I hope they have more than just duels. I would like to see some Jedi Knight series multiplayer.

If possible, yet highly unlikely, I would love to see a siege mode like in JKA that was so much fun.

I hope it is something like Metal Gear Solid - You have to admit, Metal Gear Solid 4 had a good Multiplayer until they began to add-on some stuff that was broken...{Cqc Ex}

If this game did a multiplayer like MGS4 i'd be in heaven...

I think that if they don't confirm it on e3 there will be no multiplayer. Why? Because there would be not enough time to build up the hype and convince people to preorder. Also it's not listed on the info page.

I'd like both...playing this online with other players, just like with CoDWAW co-op, would be sweet.

I'll definitely think about buying the game if they include this online co-op mode.

I wish there was, but apparently there won't be any.

If anyone is curious, this is what Multiplayer looked like in The Force Unleashed for the Wii:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HS7NJoUGZko
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HS7NJoUGZko

It was just your basic 1 on 1 deathmatch duel.

Coop would be awesome, though. There's only so much replay value in a single player campaign, even if the main draw of the game is "how many creative ways can you kill stormtroopers."

So just having duels would be rather boring, but still... better that than nothing.
