Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for April, 2016

To much rejoicing, Dark Souls 3 came out last month. That means it was a month focused on the dark and gritty series with plenty of discussion as to its merits of cooperative implementation. It was a pretty quiet month otherwise, but still you may have missed some of the news of upcoming games. May is looking strong with Battleborn kicking off the month.

Developers Tease New Warframe Content at PAX East

Developer Digital Extremes hosted a panel at PAX East last weekend where they talked a little about the state of Warframe, the free-to-play action MMO with space ninjas, and teased some new content that they have planned for this year. Top of the list was a new Warframe, a new prime frame, new content that revolves around the Grineer, and a new competitive mode, Lunaro.

Four Classic XBLA Co-Op Titles get the Backwards Compatibility Treatment

The drip feed approach to releasing backward compatible games on the Xbox One is like a new form of water torture, but at least it offers a nice surprise as a game you forgot you own pops up on the console.  For co-op fans, four out of the five games released this week are just for you; namely The Cave, Double Dragon Neon, Altered Beast and Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime.

32 Songs Will be Removed from The Beatles: Rock Band Store

Licensing agreements are a tricky thing. Releasing licensed songs via some medium typically entails setting term limits for how long those songs can be sold. This is an issue that Harmonix first came across three years ago with content for their games, and it's still an issue today. On May 5, 2016, 32 songs from The Beatles: Rock Band will be removed from the store and will not be available for purchase again.

ARK: Survival Evolved Adds Official Mods, Delayed Release

It's a good news/bad news day for ARK: Survival Evolved. The good news? The Xbox One and PC versions of the game will add official mods (i.e., those mods that appear to be selected by developer Studio Wildcard to be integrated into the game) to the title staring next month with a new map designed by a member of the ARK community. The bad news? The game's official release date is delayed across all platforms until sometime this winter.

More cooperative matches played than competitive

Battleborn Open Beta Stats

The open beta period for Gearbox's upcoming title Battleborn is over, but looks like the 2k has been sitting down to crunch the numbers from it all. During the 10 day period the beta ran on the PlayStation 4, and five days on Xbox One and PC, 1.4 million Story Mode matches (the cooperative part of the game) were played by the over 2 million players that participated.

Spook Campers With Friday The 13th Gameplay Trailers

Jason Voorhees tops the charts on kill counts as far as major horror villains are concerned. This guy's been skewering/bludgeoning/tearing the limbs off of naked, defenseless campers for a couple of decades now, so he's got way more blood on his hands than your typical "monster of the week." Perhaps that's why a co-op survival horror game based on Friday the 13th, makes sense over, say, a Jeepers Creepers game. Jason won't start to have an existential breakdown no matter how many campers you throw at him. Nope! He'll keep carving into those screaming, amoral teens without question!

Our Weekend In Gaming: Space Magic

Don't get me wrong, I know that the wonders of space have been combined with the allure of magic in plenty of fictional works, but it feels like no-gravity wizardry just hasn't been utilized in recent games, at least nothing with a redeemable story.  Luckily for us all, Co-Optimus doesn't just bring people together, it also takes genres and makes 'em get all cuddly.  We've got Nick, Marc, and Eric to thank for all this action, what with their Protoss and their Planeswalkers and whatnot.
