Well they're back with another new game and this time, instead of co-developing a game with Epic Games, they're tagging alongside Kaos Studios. Kaos studios is a relatively new game development studio who some of you may not have heard of before. However, that does not mean they're new to the game industry. Since before THQ employed them as "Kaos Studios" they were better known as Trauma studios.
Trauma studios brought us the Desert Combat mod for battlefield 1942 and helped co-produce a game close to everyones hearts here at rush-zone, Battlefield 2. So, long story short, we know both these development studios can come up with the goods.
