See – http://www.onrpg.com/articles/editorial/pax-prime-2013-day-1-recap-pt-1-elder-scrolls-online-forced-strife-and-cosplay/3/

“It is these strategy elements, whether mental or physical, and the degree of communication and coordination required to achieve them where FORCED truly shines as a co-op game.”
5/5 – http://www.co-optimus.com/review/1302/page/2/forced-co-op-review.html

About This Game

Forced is a challenging one- to four-player co-op arcade action RPG with puzzle and tactical elements. You are cast as slaves in the toughest fantasy gladiator school of them all, condemned to fight to the death, all the while attempting to win your freedom. You will face deadly trials and huge creatures, but Balfus, your Spirit Mentor will guide you in your quest to break the chains of oppression.

Features

  • 1-4 player campaign, carefully balanced for the number of players
  • Local and online co-op, it's easy to plugin controllers and play on one computer
  • A challenging Gladiator campaign with monstrous foes and tricky puzzles
  • Four Unique Character Classes, with very distinctive play styles
  • Skill focused: all enemy attacks can be evaded, it's your job to figure out how!
  • The Spirit Mentor, an extra party member which players must control together to gain an upper hand over the enemy
  • Survival Arena Mode (more modes coming)
  • Mark Combat System. Apply marks to enemies with your basic attacks, to set them up for devastating special attacks from you or your allies.

History

BetaDwarf - the team behind FORCED spent 3 years developing it while living together. It all started by illegally moving into a classroom at a university - see: The Story (it has awesome pictures)
