Waterborne, the Tropico 5 expansion releasing on December 17th, will allow you and three like-minded dictators to extend past the previously impenetrable coastline that surrounds your island.  Like a child first learning to swim, your citizens will no doubt need time to acclimate themselves to their new front yard, and what better way to prepare them than by creating a floating apartment building and forcing a few lucky folks to spend the rest of their years on a dubiously constructed barge!  Involuntary living situations aren't the only way for a leader such as yourself to display his dominance over this new frontier, though.  Your farmers, who previously found themselves sequestered to growing fruit, vegetables, and the dreams of the everyman, are now able to harvest the ocean's bounty through kelp and oyster farms.

Fortnite Dev Diary Gives An Insightful History On Its Monster, The HuskEnoch Starnes

Monster is probably the most accurate way to describe the Husk, one of the types of creatures you'll encounter during your escapades in Epic Games' Fortnite.

Despite fears on the contrary, Gibson reassures longtime fans that the PC is KF2's lead platform. He references the PC-like architecture of the PS4 (specifically), and while porting a PC game to the PS4 may take 10% more work, it opens the game up to potentially millions more fans of the series.

The new App gives you an in-depth look at all your multiplayer characters you have unlocked. Sign in with your Origin account and you'll get the full rundown. Current stats, inventory, loadout, etc. While you can't necessarily change their gear or whatnot from this mode, it does provide an ample amount of information in regards to your characters, including completed challenges and leaderboard information.

In 2013 we witnessed the re-imagining of Lara Croft who brought with her a darker side to the Tomb Raider series. Even though this Lara was a deeper, more developed character, there is always going to be room for the classic Croft we grew up with....

It's damn good. The game combines elements from so many genres: tower defense, RPG, RTS, and Rogue-Like and mixes it into something that plays completely different than anything out there. It's difficult to describe just how you play Dungeon of the Endless

On top of training an army of mindless skeletons, her "Ghost Walk" ability lets her traverse through groups of enemies for a limited time. Since Gauntlet is nothing but a colossal amount of baddies on screen wanting to carve you up, Lilith's Ghost Walk can poof her out some sticky situations.

The warrior spirit of a Viking is hard to quell, even after death. In a upcoming 2D co-op title, Zombie Vikings, we'll see just how unnaturally fierce their zombies can be! Developer Zoink will be releasing their co-op brawler game around July 2015 for both PS4 and Steam (no word on Xbox One at this time). So far, the game will follow the st...

While the game had launched with plenty of bugs and issues, now as it approaches its fourth patch Assassin's Creed Unity is shaping up to be a solid game in the series. Personally I find the co-op an absolute blast to play online with up to three additional friends.

This fourth patch, appropriately titled "Patch 4", looks to finally put the game into the state the developers originally intended.  For transparency's sake, Ubisoft has been very clear about the issues with the game and their attempts to fix them.  This specific patch has not yet been detailed in full, but a list of top priority issues have been provided that will likely be its focus:

The expansion will be included as part of a frontier package that contains the expansion and two copies of the game at $19.99 - that's certainly one way to encourage co-op.  For those that already have the game, the expansion will be available solo for $4.99.
