The latest update for the game has added a cooperative feature that I hope is the basis for more to come. Called Club Challenges, the game allows your 20 city Mayor's Club to work together to unlock chests of items for the game. The higher your cumulative score, the better and more rare of a chest you'll earn. These reset every week, so you'll always have a chance for more goodies.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts Now Backwards CompatibleMatthew Squaire

Call of Duty: Ghosts was originally released in 2013 for consoles and included an Xbox One  version at launch. However, the Xbox One also launched in 2013, meaning players who purchased a version for the previous console cycle can now easily transition.

Paired with Kane and Lynch, gamers can also pick up a free copy of Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. This is another title that made its debut on the Xbox 360, but has since become playable on both consoles. Read our review, here.

These weekly challenges not only provide players with a new way to enjoy the game, but some special rewards as well. The event is currently only available for the PC version of the game, but it's coming to the PlayStation 4 version (which you can currently get for free via PS+) at a later point. More info on the event can be found on the official website.

This summer, Pokémon GO will receive a huge free summer update that is geared towards making the game more accessible and social. One of the update's big headliners is the introduction of cooperative Raid Battles. For Raid Battles, up to 20 players will be able to team up together to fight rare bosses, but they will need a raid pass to participate. Players get one free raid pass a day, with the option to purchase additional ones. If eligible to participate, players will see pokémon eggs randomly appear at gyms with count-down timers, which denote when they will hatch. This is the cue for nearby players to virtually assemble. When the counter ticks down to zero, the egg will hatch into a boss that the players have five minutes to beat. If they succeed, they'll get a chance to capture a rare pokémon (the details are unclear whether all participating players get this chance, or a limited number of them). Other Raid Battle rewards include raid-specific items such as rare candies, golden razz berries (which give you a better chance for catching wild pokémon), and technical machines (which allow trainers to teach their pokémon fast and change attacks).

The main hook to "Salmon Run" is that in addition to fending off waves of enemies, called "Salmonids," you and your teammates will also need to collect a number of "Golden Eggs," which drop from bigger foes, within a set time limit. Even after you collect all the eggs, however, you still have to survive the remainder of the wave. The mode also has a difficulty setting that goes from 5% (easiest) to 100% (hardest). Even on the easiest difficulty, you'll need to work with your teammates to call out bosses and incoming threats.

Similar to Super Mario Galaxy, where players took control of a star and could float around Mario and assist him, the co-op for Super Mario Odyssey allows a second player to join in at any time and control Mario's hat, Cappy. The co-op demo that Nintendo held on their stage yesterday starts around the 4:00 mark in the video below and then wraps up around the 13:00 mark. While controlling Cappy, the second player is able to fly around independently from Mario, which they show off by solving a puzzle involving collecting music notes. Cappy is also invincible and can attack enemies for Mario to keep him out of danger.

The sizzle reel doesn't go into too much detail, but from the E3 game page, it sounds like in addition to inhaling enemies and gaining their powers, Kirby can also befriend them and turn them into allies. Presumably it is these newly won over recruits that players two through four will be able to control. So only player one will get to utilize Kirby's copy abilities and the new tricks, like imbuing them with different elements.

While it doesn't have a proper name just yet, the announcement trailer shows off all the key details we need to know. Action platforming? Check. Two player local co-op? Check. Adorable art style with a bit of a twist? Double check. It appears that rather than slinging balls of yarn around, this time Yoshi will be in a kind of cardboard world which can be flipped so you can see the other side of things.

The game made its debut last night during Sony's E3 press conference. In the announcement trailer below, you can see a few new features that are making their way to the newest entry, like using the environment and other monsters to help you take down your prey. Additionally, while it's sort of hinted at in the footage where the monster pursues the hunter, there won't be hard break points between different map areas so both monster and hunter can move freely back and forth without any loading screens in between.

The expansion, titled "Awakening the Nightmare," will shift the campaign over to Atriox and his Banished forces as they fight off everybody's favorite Halo enemy: the Flood. From an overall story perspective, these events take place a few months after the conclusion of the main campaign as the Banished are now desperate to take control of the Ark. I get that desperate times call for desperate measures, but unleashing some zombie plants doesn't seem all that smart.

Armed with a 6 teraflop GPU that enables 4K gaming at 60FPS with ease, the Xbox One X will play all of your Xbox One games. Certain games will support a higher 4K native resolution along with HDR color (HDR10 to be exact) if your TV allows. What does this mean? Crisper images with punchier colors combined with silky smooth frame rates. Games that support these features will have an "Enhanced for Xbox One X" logo on the box. You can see the list of supported games on the Xbox site. As of now, Co-Optimus won't be tracking this feature in our database, just like we don't track the PS4 Pro enhancements.
