The Founder's Alpha will run until August 30th and developer Phoenix Labs also announced that the Closed Beta will immediately follow it, starting on September 1st. When the Closed Beta kicks off, purchasers of the other two levels of Founder's Packs (Slayer at $40 and Hero at $70) will be able to join the testing. (Note: we were mistaken in our previous news post that all Founders would receive access to the Founder's Alpha.) Though obvious, it bears repeating that the Founder's Alpha and Closed Beta are early access/preview versions of the game, meaning that some content will be missing or limited and there will be bugs.

Keep on Mudding with Spintires: MudRunnerJason Love

If you're never heard of the title before and wondering "just what is this thing," it's ok, you're not alone. Without a doubt, the big appeal to Spintires was the mud physics that could trap your vehicle in a mire of Siberian swamp. Sure, you ostensibly had the task of going around picking up lumber and delivering to various places around the map, but that's not why people played itSpintires: MudRunner is more of the same, but with a few new features, like an open-world/sandbox map, a new Challenge mode, new vehicles, and improved graphics.

“We’re very excited about Crackdown 3, and so are many fans, and so it’s a difficult call to move the release date, However, we want to make sure to deliver the right game, with the right quality, and at the right time. Crackdown 3 is a hugely ambitious game and we want to ensure we deliver the right experiences all the way through every part of the game, whether that’s campaign, co-op multiplayer or our competitive multiplayer mode, Wrecking Zone. Getting the balance right between the three modes is important, and we are going to take the extra development time to ensure that. Gamers can expect Crackdown 3 in Spring of 2018.”

The news came via a Dev Diary video last week as Executive Producer Zak Phelps and Creative Director Darren Sugg addressed the feedback they've received about game crashes across all platforms. The most recent series of patches, which have just about dropped daily since last Friday, have all been aimed at fixing those crashes and improving stability. Around the 3:15 mark they bust out the Survival mode news and it definitely sounds promising. The missions I've encountered thus far have largely been a variation of defending a single point for a set period of time, so having something with this sort of unique challenge where players will have to maintain a defense over the course of several in-game days could be fun. No specific dates are given for this big update, but they hope to get it out "end of August/early September."

What modes support co-op in Splatoon 2? How many players can play Splatoon 2 via system link or LAN? How many players can play Splatoon 2 online? How many players are supported in combo co-op? What is the goal of Salmon Run? Kill bosses, get eggs; sounds easy! Where's the challenge? So what do you get for winning? That's a lot to take in, can you summarize? How do I set up a match of Salmon Run with my friends? Is the Nintendo Switch Online app required? Are four players required to play Salmon Run? When playing online, can I join a friend's game if the host has a higher Pay Grade than me?

Outside of the trailer this past March and the initial release announcement at last year's E3, we haven't heard too much about the game. The title's description and footage definitely paints a picture of this being a PAYDAY style shooter but set in World War II Nazi Germany instead of modern day bank heists. I mean, hey, I can definitely get behind the premise, but it would also be cool to see a little more of the game in action. Hopefully developer Lion Game Lion will have something new to show off before RAID: World WAR II arrives next month.

The Escapists series began in 2014 as a Steam early access game before being completed a year later in 2015 and then made its way to consoles soon after, giving fans the underdog story—the one where the little indie game worked through early access, gained critical recognition, and eventually got a promising sequel—that we all love. Although the original Escapists was released without any multiplayer, the sequel not only features a versus mode, but both online and local drop-in/ drop-out co-op that allows for up to 4 players, which is an incredibly exciting improvement for any game series.

The demo went live this past Friday and can be accessed on the PSN store or Microsoft store if you navigate to the Ghost Recon Wildlands page. The five hour trial allows you to fully explore as much of Bolivia as you can before that timer expires. You're also free to team up with whomever you want regardless if they own the full game or not, and all of your progress in the trial will also carry over. It's worth noting that even though the trial is limited, you're basically downloading the full game. That's good news if you like what you see and want to buy it, but bad news if a 60 Gb download is too much. There's a trial FAQ over on the website that covers all the pertinent details.

The streets of London are overrun with the living dead and its up to four survivors - Teller, Mick ‘The Brick’, Rei, and Eddie - to take out as many of them as possible. While the action is very side-scrolling brawler focused, nDreams has described the combat as "free-form" so you can chain moves together. The other big feature here is that the title supports VR players for both the PC (Rift and Vive) and PlayStation 4 versions (PSVR), as well as combo co-op. So, if you and your buddy are playing on the couch together, you could join another friend who's using the PSVR. The player wearing the VR headset is able to get a unique view of the action and can move the camera around to get a better look at what's ahead or crawling up behind you.

The songs included in Spotlight Season 2's season pass will be the new ones released for the game's Rivals Mode challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with this challenge mode, each week three tracks are selected as Spotlight Songs: two tracks players already own and one newly released DLC track, tied together with a theme. Over a series of eight weeks, eight new DLC songs will be released. These can be purchased a la carte for $2, or in one fell swoop with the Spotlight Pass for $13.49. That means a 15% (or $2.50) discount, with the downside being that the songs won't be known until the week of their release.

The latest DLC from Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind the game, is completely free and is available now to all players. The DLC adds a new co-op mode that features waves of “increasingly difficult enemies” , as the official announcement states, with a team of up to 4 players defending a Harvester against these threats. While the mode (and cooperative play altogether) seem to be welcome additions to Titanfall 2’s electric and exciting gameplay, the addition of wave-based survival does seem pretty true to form, for better or for worse.

The co-op features are covered (rather cleanly, I must say) in the first couple minutes of the update video. If that's all you care about, then watch those two minutes, be joyous and happy, and enjoy the rest of the day!
