The lights are on
Looking for the perfect 4-player co-op title to play this summer? Fans of Gauntlet and Diablo have a lot to look forward to with Crimson Alliance.
Certain Affinity’s upcoming Action/RPG for Xbox Live will let up to four players level up three character classes in their pursuit to dismantle the sinister Cult of the Soul Siren. Players will be able to crowd around a single system or play together over Xbox Live. The world of Crimson is brimming with labyrinthine crypts, ruined cities, deadly traps and hidden treasures. Check out the newest batch of screens below.

I will probably have to pass on this one. My internet is 3G wireless so needless to say I cannot play online. Unless this game has a good single player experience, I'll have to save it for another day.
i only see 2 characters... am i blind or something???
Up to four players but only three classes? Sounds slightly strange to me.
Seems like it could be a lot of fun. I'm a big fan of the Gauntlet style games with the Diablo style loot and treasure. Should be enough to hold me over until Torchlight 2 on consoles, which might be a year or more. Le sigh.
As long as there is much loot to be found and unique weapons then you can count me in! Graphics aren't that impressive but gameplay mechanics and story can make up for that if they try hard enough.
I'm still unable to tell if this is leaning more toward Gauntlet, or Diablo in terms of character loot/progression. I dearly hope for the latter.
