Haze positioned to take over Talladega Nights as best four-player co-op PS3 game

Ubisoft sent over some new screens for their upcoming first-person shooter Haze today, and we’d like to share them with you. Haze is a game that Ubisoft is so steadfastly insisting is a PlayStation 3 exclusive, that we’re inclined to agree with them.

As if to position itself as Sony’s exclusive answer to Halo 3, the screenshots highlight the game’s four-player cooperative mode. In the game, you can play as a high-tech Mantel Trooper, using the Nectar enhanced abilities and a cutting-edge arsenal. On the other hand, you can also take the role of the Promise Hand rebel, and use abilities like “play dead” and “weapon stealing” to take out the enemy.

It’s a neat touch that your choice of character will seemingly alter how the game is played, and four-player co-op is really nothing to sneeze at. Perhaps it won’t be a system seller Haze comes to the PlayStation 3 this November, but it’s better than watching Talladega Nights again.
