Each player has three skills trees that you can expand on; medical, technology and security.  This basically like choosing between healing people, chasing them around the map or building a massive gun turret to make the enemy's life a bullet hell.  Thankfully, as the trailer will show, there is a little more subtlety than this:

Get A Glimpse Of Dying Light: The Following's Locations In Exploration TrailerEnoch Starnes

Luckily for us, Techland has provided us with a brief trailer showing off a few highlighted locations, which is honestly the least they could do, considering the amount of amateur cartography work they're about to dump on us.

Here's a quick breakdown of both titles. Assault Android Cactus is a fantastic twin-stick shooter where you and up to three of your friends (locally) control robots to fight your way through a ship that's been taken over by a rogue A.I. Each character has her own unique primary and alternate weapons, and teaming up with friends allows for a lot of crazy combinations. Something new for the PlayStation 4 version of the game is that it will support the Shareplay feature, meaning you can pull in a remote friend to take over one of the local co-op spots for an hour at a time.

The developer had previously announced that there would be three expansion packs included in the game's season pass, but this is the first time we've gotten any kind of specifics regarding that content. The first pack is titled "Underground" and will feature a new area for players to explore and loot in New York City's underworld. The next expansion, "Survival," sounds like it could be some kind of horde mode, though it's not clear exactly how it would be different from the final piece of planned content, "Last Stand." Finally, Ubisoft intends to release free content for the game throughout the year, some of which be built around team/group challenges.

The new frame is called "Nezha" and utilizes a flame powers for both destruction and healing (see more in the video below). In addition, three new weapons have been added to Warframe's already extensive arsenal. You can now whap opponents (or yourself) in the face with the Shaku nunchaku, impale foes on the Sydon trident, or slice them to ribbons with the Destreza rapier. Finally, new skins and other customization options have been added for existing Tenno.

The new mode is a horde mode, called "The Last Stand" (not to be confused with the same mode in Dawn of War 2: Retribution). Your plucky band of heroes will be challenged to fight off as many waves of Skaven before you (ultimately) perish. The mode will include one map for players to enjoy, and all of that will be free.

"Der Eisendrache" picks up where "The Giant" - the last bit of zombie DLC for the game that is only available to you if you picked up the season pass bundle (or the collector's edition) - left off. Heroes Richtofen, Nikolai, Takeo, and Dempsey head off to a new Nazi research facility and find (surprise, surprise) more zombies to kill! There are a couple of interesting looking guns shown off in the trailer (along with an exploding monkey), and an enemy that is very reminiscent of the Big Daddy from BioShock.

The Resistance Mode will allow up to four players to form a resistance cell in Philadelphia and engage in guerilla warfare against the entrenched Korean People's Army. Each player will be able to customize their fighter, unlock skills, choose their loadout, and earn new upgrades as they play through the mode's 12 missions.

The setup here is that you and your squad of mercenaries (which can be controlled by up to three of your friends) are sent through a wormhole to gather new tech for your employer. As is the nature of these sorts of ventures, you get trapped on the other side and left on your own to explore the new galaxy and survive.

Starting today, Kala will meander into Hunter HQ, act like nothing's amiss, and ask if she can hop into the next session.  She'll be taking on the Support role, which has been held primarily by Hank, Bucket, Cabot, and Sunny.  To differentiate herself, she's decided to get into the whole "genome splicing" thing all the kids are into and combined Monster DNA with that of her own.  She's also brought a teaser trailer that she'll no doubt throw onto the HQ's projector and act surprised when it starts playing.

For the time being, not much is known about the game outside of those scant few details and that the story was written by the current writer of the IDW comic, Tom Waltz. From the trailer itself, there does appear to some kind of co-op team up move that a few of the turtles perform around the 0:55 mark, which is always nice to see.

While I do miss THQ/Relic and their take on the Warhammer franchise, Fatshark's recent addition to it all, Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide, was a great co-op title. So I can only hope that Deathwing is as well. After all, it's got co-op, some RPG/loot mechanics, and the atmosphere of 40k; those all add up to a good game, right?

The action of the game sounds a bit more like that found in the popular Dark Souls series of games than anything in similar titles. As the developer puts it:
