Here's the link to the official xbox.com Marathon: Durandal page.

Features

Seventeen years ago, you survived a vicious Pfhor assault on the U.E.S.C. Marathon. Now you have been awakened by the enigmatic, sentient A.I. called Durandal and sent to an alien world to uncover the mysteries of their advanced technology. In Marathon: Durandal, armed with only a pistol, you are humanity?s last champion!

* Epic story: The game?s entire story (over 13000 lines of text) has been translated into seven languages.

* Upgraded visuals: All images in the game have been redrawn in high definition.

* Modern networking: Marathon: Durandal features a new modern networking layer built with Xbox LIVE? in mind.

* Superior control: The redesigned controls take full advantage of the Xbox 360 Controller and enhance playing a first-person shooter on a home console.


I'm actually pretty excited for this game, it seems like something neat to play before H3 comes out. It's also very fully featured, we'll be able to play multiplayer on this game.

I'm really hoping we get 4 player co-op with this like we did with Doom. Even if we don't, whatever. I can't wait for this one.

I'll try to find source. But I heard it was in.

There isn't four player co-op. Those bastards only gave us eight player co-op.

Eight player co-op. There's also four player split-screen co-op, so you could have three other people on your 360 and still be able to play online co-op with four others. I don't know anything about Multiplayer, but I'm assuming it's eight players as well.

Eight just seems like overkill though, don't you think? You could probably blow through the hardest difficulty pretty easily with eight players, unless you're bumping into each other the whole time.

I think there's only 8-player co-op for the survival arena mode, where you're in a big room with countless numbers of enemies spawning. I think it's just 2-4 for campaign.

OXM gave Marathon a 5.5. + Neat Multiplayer with a good lobby system. - Aggravating level design. - Gets pretty damn tough, even with 2007 FPS skills. ? Why is the online lobby system better than that of most full priced games? I stole this from Thermite on GAF.

How is that a negative? There's difficulty settings for a reason.

It's actually not that difficult either. Unless you just run around Doom style...
