will feature up to four person co-op, and I'm betting that it will follow the same drop-in-drop-out connection formula that worked pretty well (mostly) in Dead Island. Four classes are announced so far; the warrior and the mage get a lot of screen time in the trailer. It's just a teaser, of course, but so far we haven't seen any sign of the other two classes, the paladin and the rogue.
