New Details Emerge For State Of Decay 2

"Wow," I remember thinking when I first gazed upon State of Decay's Steam page, "this has just about everything I'd want in a zombie survival game."  Not only did it allow you to engage in the traditional scavenging, crafting, and defending mechanics found elsewhere in the genre, it also attempted to simulate the humans living within this apocalyptic nightmare and their various relationships.  Unfortunately, it was without any sort of co-op mode, and as such, was tough to imagine fitting into my traditional gaming rotation.

Not to be confused with the Goat Simulator DLC for PAYDAY 2

PAYDAY DLC for Goat Simulator Makes Its Way to Xbox Consoles

Earlier this year, those wacky goats in Goat Simulator decided to take up heisting with the PAYDAY DLC. At the time, this was a PC exclusive DLC pack that added a camel, a flamingo, a dolphin, and four new goats to the roster of playable animals in the game, as well as some vaguely PAYDAY 2 themed things. That DLC is now availab...

Next Battleborn Update Will Unlock All 25 Core Characters for Free

The exact future for Battleborn may be up-in-the-air, but with the next update, Gearbox and 2K are hoping to attract a few more players to the title. The big ticket item with this update is that all 25 characters in the original roster, i.e., none of the new ones that have been added over the past six months, will be unlocked for free simply by completing the Prologue.

The sequel nobody saw coming

Knack 2 is in the Works

While Sony had a fair number of surprises for its fans at the PlayStation Experience this past weekend, including the reveal of The Last of Us: Part 2 and Windjammers making its way digitally to PSN, the one game that was perhaps the biggest surprise was Knack 2. While the original has its appeal and drawbacks, it sounds like Japan Studio has heard much of the criticism leveled at the game and put that to work to make the sequel better.

New Rocket League Map and Steam Workshop Support Arrive Tomorrow

Since it's debut last July, Rocket League has risen to be one of the most popular multiplayer games out there. We're just happy that you can play against some co-op bots with buddies. A new sci-fi themed arena, "Starbase ARC," gets added to the title, but perhaps best of all, PC players will be able to share their own custom maps with folks via Steam Workshop.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Stockpiling

The Co-Opticrew has begun to emerge from their various comfort food-induced comas, which means that the preparation for a harsh winter must begin.  We've already stocked up on almost all the necessities (food, water, firewood, virginal blood to conduct our nightly Yuletide rituals, bedding, etc), so that leaves just one final item:  video games.

Spice Up Your Holidays With the Festive Seasoning DLC for Overcooked

It's been rather incredible to see how much love Overcooked - a local co-op only title - has been getting these past few months. Entirely deserved, too, from my perspective. To celebrate the holidays, those fine gentlemen at Ghost Town Games are releasing an appropriately themed DLC pack for free.

ARK: Survival Evolved Makes Its Way Onto PlayStation 4 Next Week

It's been promised for some time and now the PlayStation 4 version of ARK: Survival Evolved will finally be available to play on December 6. This is not the final version of the game, as the title is still in Early Access on Steam and Game Preview on Xbox One, but if you've been waiting for it to make it to this platform, then you only have to wait a few more days.

First Bit of DLC on Its Way for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

In case you missed it last week, our co-op review of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 went up. We both had fun playing it, even if the Parallel Quests and Expert Missions can get a bit repetitive. If, like us, you're looking for something new to do, then you're in luck! Later this month the game will receive some free and paid DLC that will add new quests, new teachers, and more.

Collector's Edition for Sniper Elite 4 Available in Australia Only

Good news if you enjoy slow motion death cams and also live in "the land down under." EB Games is offering a Collector's Edition for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Sniper Elite 4 for just $AUD129.95. No word on whether this will be making its way to any other territories, so if you're outside of Australia and really interested in picking it up, then you certainly can, but expect a pretty big shipping fee.

Ubisoft recently confirmed that support and new content would continue for another year for Rainbow 6 Siege, and it looks like next year's content will be similar in at least some ways to this year's. The biggest thing for the co-op fans will be the addition of eight new operators so you have more choices for putting together your ideal "Terrorist Hunt" team.
