    This is one of the games I thought stood out at PAX, and now that a bit more is known about it, I thought it could use a thread. It's being developed by Red 5 Studios which was started by some former Blizzard developers including Mark Kern and William Petras. The game play looked pretty solid in the live demo, and some of the co-op functionality seemed pretty cool, such as placing a broadcast beacon on an objective that allows anyone to see and join your mission. Character progression looked to depend on equipment, allowing players to swap roles on-the-fly.


    A general summary of what is currently known is found here at the official forums. Signing up at the forums also enters an application into their Beta program.
