Monaco

An amazing looking and possibly addicting multiplayer heist game. Like that of Oceans Eleven you will be able to work as a team online to reach the prize in the back of the Casino. The thing that surprised me the most was the multilayer feature, which separates it from most titles. Each player has a specific job such as “The Hacker.” and “The Muscle”. Although the lights may seem distracting the game play will be focused on your character only.

” I haven’t had this much fun with 4-player co-op since The Behemoth’s Castle Crashers came out in 2008, and I suspect very deeply that Monaco is going to be this year’s breakaway indie hit.” – Motherboard.tv

Monaco does not have a current release date but is promised to be released on Pc and Mac and at least one console.
