It’s official; Treyarch is just showing off! They’re trying as hard as possible to outdo Modern Warfare 2, and after this announcement…I’m sold! Simultaneous offline/online multiplayer is just what this game needs! I’m curious whether you can bring in more than one guest into the mix ala Halo: Reach, but for now it looks like the feature is limited to just two players. For Xbox 360 fans, this feature may prove to be really cool as your friend can use his own Xbox Live account and fight alongside you. Sadly for PS3 owners, there’s still no possible way to have two PSN accounts sign in from the same console…so your friend will be forced to join as a temporary guest.
Other features that have been talked about include regional matchmaking and customized private games. Good stuff. Online is looking more streamlined than MW2 already.
