SEGA has announced Renegade Ops, a downloadable military cooperative shooter from Swedish developer Avalanche Studios, best known for the Just Cause franchise.

Renegade Ops puts players in a mobile commando unit sent behind enemy lines to defeat Inferno, a madman intent on global domination.

Defeat enemies across a range of environments using a variety of vehicles, from dispersing electromagnetic shock waves to the use of a huge Gatling gun. Players can fight alone in single-player mode, team up offline with two-player split-screen or join-up with three other players in online co-op.

"Renegade Ops is Avalanche Studios' first strategic step into the world of digitally downloaded games, but certainly not the last," commented Linus Blomberg executive producer at Avalanche Studios. "With a strong foundation in our unique technology, we can allow our teams working on digitally downloaded games to unleash their creativity."

Renegade Ops will be released later this year for XBLA, PSN and PC download in 2011.
