"And you can play it.... right now"

[E3 2018] EA Reveals New Co-Op Platformer Unravel Two

EA Play's E3 2018 press conference just wrapped up, and while there wasn't a lot of co-op news, there were a couple things that caught our interest. Up first, Coldwood Interactive revealed Unravel Two, a follow-up to their charming single-player only platformer from 2016. This time around, though, two players can enjoy all the yarn-tastic adventure. Oh, and it's available right this very moment.

You may be an elite assassin, but is your buddy?

Hitman 2 Includes New Co-Op Mode, Available Now Via Pre-Order

IO Interactive announced yesterday that everyone's favorite silent assassin (if you're doing it right), Agent 47, will be returning in a brand new "world of assassination" in Hitman 2. This is a direct sequel to the episodic and extraordinarily fun quasi-reboot of Hitman that dropped in 2016. What's particularly exciting this time around is that a new co-op mode, called "Sniper Assassin," has been added, and it's available to play right now.

New Beyond Good and Evil 2 Video Shows A Smidgen of Co-Op

During a developer livestream last week, Ubisoft Montpellier showed off more of Beyond Good and Evil 2, perhaps one of the most anticipated video game sequels ever. While the reveal of the title itself was a big surprise during last year's E3, we here at Co-Optimus got a nice surprise during that livestream when the devs (finally) discussed the co-op gameplay... sort of.

In a recent update on the Xbox Wire site, the team at Chucklefish spoke about bringing Starbound from the PC to the Xbox One.

If I saw a pyramid in Siberia, my first thought would not be "let's explore that!"

Escape Update Adds Co-Op Mode to DEAD DOZEN

Fntastic, the developers that (initially) brought us The Wild Eight, launched a new game on Steam Early Access last month in the form of the multiplayer FPS/action title, Dead Dozen. While the main focus is an interesting blend of PvP and co-op where dead teammates get back up as ghouls (still controlled by the player) that attack their former friends. Today, they release an update titled "Escape" that adds a new strictly co-op mode.

Lovers in a Dangerous FTL?

Team Up With Friends to Man A Space Station in Undercrewed

I loved Subset Games' FTL, and the only thing about it I didn't like was that I couldn't bring in some friends to help crew the ship and save the galaxy. I'm guessing I wasn't the only one that felt that way because Undercrewed, a new co-op title that's currently in development, seems to be drawing some strong inspiration from not only FTL, but also Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.

Question, which was founded by two developers that formerly worked on Bioshock titles, has announced their next game, and it's a very interesting premise. The Blackout Club puts you and up to three other players into the shoes of some teenagers who are trying to prove to the adults that their friend's disappearance is part of something bigger.

The Dark Souls of anime

Bandai Namco's CODE VEIN Gets Online Co-Op Functionality

Sure, Bandai Nacmo is bringing a remastered version of Dark Souls to consoles and PC this Spring, but that doesn't mean they can't also bring their own take on it to those platforms. The developer announced earlier this week that CODE VEIN, an action RPG that's designed by the same team that worked on the GOD EATER series, will support online co-op for two people when it launches sometime this year.

Switching It Up Spring 2018

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Incoming

An unplanned Nintendo Direct took place last Wednesday morning giving Nintendo a moment in the spotlight to tell gamers everywhere what goodies are in store for them in 2018. One announcement that caught our attention is Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, a Co-Op friendly game in the Legend of Zelda family. This version is coming to Nintendo Switch in Spring of 2018 and includes character skins from the wildly popular (although sadly only single player) Breath of the Wild.

THQ Nordic is run by a bunch of mad men... and I love it

Titan Quest Headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Next Spring

I'm sort of out of words for how stunned/impressed I am by THQ Nordic these days. After releasing new DLC for Titan Quest (an 11-year-old game) a few weeks ago, the developer/publisher told THEMSELVES "hold my beer" and announced yesterday that they'll be bringing the action-RPG to consoles in March 2018. Not only that, but they're releasing a Collector's Edition of it, too! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatttttt??!
