Co-op campaigns with strong story elements are more and more common. Creating a cohesive narrative for a game with drop in/drop out co-op can be uniquely challenging. A panel of experienced writers who have worked on a wide range of co-op games, spanning different genres and styles, will talk about how they met the challenge. Co-op campaigns discussed will include Marvel Ultimate Alliance Two, Guild Wars, Pirates of the Burning Sea, Red Alert 3, Call of Juarez: The Cartel, and Dead Island.
