[E3 2014] - More Co-Op Zombie Looting in Dead Island 2

Deep Silver publishing has released a few Dead Island games since the initial one hit back in 2011 with a trailer that was equal parts terrifying and poignant with a soundtrack that was evocative of the TV show "Lost." The FPS zombie killing co-op loot fest is back in a direct sequel, Dead Island 2, with a trailer that's a little more upbeat and comical, but just a touch disturbing and subversive in its own right.

It has been quite some time since we've heard from the multi-colored wizards of Magicka, despite their plentiful DLC releases.

A game looking to unite players through a different kind of story

Puzzle Co-Op Adventure Inbound in Together: Amna & Saif

New indie developer Mount Olympus Games, headed by Lyle Cox, has a vision for gaming. Rather than a new FPS shoot thriller, or hack-n-slash loot fest, they want to make games that "benefit society... We want players lives to be better for having played my games." Their first attempt at this is Together: Amna & Saif, a cooperative puzzle platformer where "you can't complete anything by yourself" and players "will need to communicate and co-operate with each other to progress."

Cooperative totem building

Best known for their work on Max and the Magic Marker and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, Danish developer Press Play is dipping into the world of cooperative games with their upcoming title, currently name Project Totem. In this puzzle platformer, players are tasked with navigating through a series of levels in order to complete the construction of a totem. The catch is that you have to control two objects at the same time.

A smattering of co-op offerings

Xbox One's Indie Games Program to Get 25 Games

Not to be left behind by Sony's push to welcome indie games/developers to the PS4 fold, Microsoft recently released a list of indie games that would be making their way to the Xbox One console as part of the ID@Xbox program. Many of these are games that have been out on PC or some other platform for a little while and are now getting ported over to the next gen console. Perhaps the best news for us co-op lovers is that a handful of these titles embrace the cooperative spirit!

The sequel to the indie twin-stick shooter has a new trick

Waves: Arena Tactics Debuts Co-Op Mode

The once veritable abundance of twin-stick shooters has slacked off a bit since Geometry Wars first hit the scene. That's not to say there haven't been some great ones released, but they're getting fewer and far between. Fortunately, there's another gem on the way that combines twin-stick shooting and cooperative gameplay with an unlikely element: rogue-like.

Ryse: Son of Rome Filled with Microtransaction "Goodness"

It feels like not that long ago that we learned that the seemingly quick-time frenzy that is Ryse: Son of Rome would include a co-op mode where players can team up in arena combat situations. While this particular mode wasn't on display when announced, it's gotten demoed a bit more recently at various events and there's an interesting bit of news regarding this co-op mode.

Wolfpack mode sees a return in a slightly more piratey fashion

Assassin's Creed 4 Will Have Cooperative Mode

Prepare yourself for a lot of piratey talk to invade Co-Optimus as Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is officially getting a co-op mode. So, "arrr!", "AVAST!", "yo ho ho and a bottle of finely purified water because seriously the stuff they drank in those days had to be mixed with rum to kill what was in it." Alright, with all of that out of my system, let's talk some details.

Sci-fi Rogue-Like Risk of Rain to Get Online Co-Op

With the multitude of games getting released these days, both from major development studios and independent ones, it's easy for a great game to go under the radar. Such was almost the case for Risk of Rain, an action/adventure platformer with rogue-like elements that supports 4 player local co-op on PC. Fortunately, Matthew Griffin of Yeti Trunk, the developers behind Wanderlust: Rebirth, shot us an email to not only bring the game to our attention, but also let us in on a bit of exciting co-op news. Specifically, that he's working with the game's developers to add online co-op to the game.

E3 2013 - Stronghold Crusader 2 Eyes On Impressions

The Stronghold series has been around now on PCs for over 15 years, with the RTS garnering millions of sales over its lifetime. Honestly, it's surprising there aren't more games out there that are similar. While the series started out set in medieval England, the Crusader branch took things to the deserts of the Middle East. Now that series is getting a new game on a brand new 3D engine and being self published by Firefly Studios. In an AirStream trailer across from the LA convention center we went eyes on with the new game. Stronghold Crusader 2 is still early in development but it's already shaping up to have many of the core gameplay elements that made the original so popular. While the game will have a campaign, which will serve as both a tutorial and a series of challenges, the meat and potatoes of Stronghold is the game's skirmish mode. It's here that Firefly has put a lot of attention and added the ability to co-op with a friend.
