Splatoon 2 Co-Op FAQ

While the overall goal of Splatoon 2's co-op mode, Salmon Run, is fairly straightforward, the different permutations (i.e., local/adhoc network vs online), when you can play online, how you can connect with friends, and the rewards is a bit confusing. We've done our best to break this down and answer some of the more frequent questions about it.

Last night the Co-Opticrew had to serve hard time. Locked up in a virtual prison our crew was tasked with escaping the man, because, well...we didn't do it! We're innocent. The Escapists 2 is the sequel to the wildly popular game from developer Mouldy Toof Studios and published by Team 17. The series now has co-op and with it comes all the antics and strategy that playing with your friends brings.

Gameplay Footage of the Co-Op Challenge in Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Ubisoft's venture into the world of Mario took us all a little bit by surprise when it was finally unveiled at this year's E3. The rumors and leaks prior to the event had many wondering what Nintendo was thinking, but seeing Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle in action eased many of those anxieties. We only got a little tease of the co-op mode at that time, but now, a new gameplay video provides the pertinent details.

More Characters Announced For LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

If you're a fan of the LEGO games, you've likely played for dozens of hours as the main stars of their many licensed universes - Harry Potter, Marvel, Star Wars, etc.  However, one of the largest attractions to the series, for me at least, is the chance to play as those oft-forgotten characters.  The "Had A Fourteen Issue Comic Run" characters, the "Appears Briefly In The Background Of The Bar Scene" characters.  You know the type.

The Titans are coming!

Co-Op Mode Now Available for Titanfall 2, Free on Origin Access

The sequel to Titanfall was a critical and commercial success, though it was one we initially skipped over as it was multiplayer only and no co-op focused gameplay. Titanfall 2 originally launched in October of 2016 and now, 9 months later, has seen the addition of co-op through the free DLC titled “Operation Frontier Shield”. Additionally, the game is now playable for free through EA’s Origin Access.

Online Co-Op Coming to Stardew Valley Next Year

One of the big hits of 2016 was the "open-ended country-life RPG," Stardew Valley. This labor of love from one-man development team ConcernedApe let players own and operate their own farm while also engaging in other activities like romancing the local townsfolk and throw some festivals. While it is a single-player only affair, there's some good news on the way: co-op will be implemented sometime next year.
