Microsoft has announced that its latest regular Xbox Live Arcade update will see the addition of Sierra Online's Assault Heroes 2
, a sequel to the XBLA original, promising an enhanced co-op mode and "more intense on-foot gameplay."
Sierra says the game will feature "relentless enemies and outrageous bosses in climactic battles, including an all-out skirmish in outer space," and new on-foot mechanics.
The game will also feature newly hijackable enemy units, letting players steal attack helicopters, armored tanks, or mechanical walkers from the enemy, in both its single or co-op multiplayer modes.
Following the discount
of the original game, Assault Heroes 2
will be available May 14th on Xbox Live Arcade at a price of 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
