In true RTS fashion, the co-op in Cossacks 3 is resigned to "comp-stomping," i.e., you and up to five of your friends can team up against computer controlled opponents to utterly decimate them. The five campaign missions in the game are, unfortunately, single-player only, so teaming up with a group of friends to kick some A.I. butt is your only choice here.

Super Mega Baseball 2 Coming Next YearJason Love

While the game will support a max of four players, that's only if you're going head-to-head, i.e., a team of two player vs another team of two players. For co-op, the game will only support two players on the same team together against an A.I. team. They can be playing together on the same couch or over the Internet, but two is the max.

In a news post on their site, the Finnish developer stated that they are changing things up a bit. While acknowledging that they have largely focused on creating "exciting stories, memorable characters, believable worlds and cinematic action" within a single-player context, they want to try to bring all of that into a co-op experience.

In addition to the two titles, the Collection will also include two pieces of DLC: a Character Pack and a Spell Pack. The Character Pack adds a few new characters to the game, including the four founders of the Hogwarts Houses, and the Spell Pack adds five new spells that will do things like turn your head into a pumpkin or make your teeth grow out. Along with all that content, the visuals will get some touch-ups to take advantage of that PS4 graphical power.

Developer Fabrik Games designed the game with a nod to that particular British style and swagger while also giving players the ability to choose how they want to approach each heist. Either loud and action-filled, or sneaky and quiet. The announcement trailer shows off a little bit of how those kinds of player choices work out in real-time and the consequences of each. There are a few more action videos in the EU PlayStation Blog post announcing the title's release, if you want to get a better idea of what the game looks like in motion.

While the lack of a co-op campaign may disappoint some, it sounds like Infinity Ward took that energy and focused it into Zombies in Spaceland. More than just a way to shoot zombies, the dev team took that three year development time to make something that would feel very different from the rest of the game. One of the ways they've done this is to add a unique respawn mechanic. Players that fall to the zombie swarms will be transported into an "80s themed arcade... [with] fully functioning carnival-style games and some classic Activision 2600 games you can play." If you rack up enough points in these games, you can "earn your way back to life before the round ends." Depending on the quality of those games, I may end up intentionally dying just so I can spend more time in that arcade!

When an unprecedented Cataclysm threatens to wipe out all human life on Earth, it’s decided that the best way for our species to survive is to upload our consciousness into machines. A select few are placed into special robots referred to as “Capital Intellects” to help build a new paradise (Eden) where human life can begin again. The rest are uploaded into a giant database maintained by an artificial intelligence, SATCOM, that is waiting for the day to come when humanity can be restored The Cataclysm, however, proves to be more disruptive than anticipated and it corrupts the artificial life left behind, leading to an endless war. In order to break the cycle, the SATCOM finds three Intellects that haven’t been corrupted yet and awakens them so they may track down the keys to Eden.

Based on the current look of the game, I really like what Formal Sheep has done with their monochromatic landscape. The sections that are black and white are clearly defined, yet they shift in way that looks more natural than "this is now this color." It looks like it allows for a better interplay between the two players as they try to help one another in the puzzle solving.

This free add-in, which is currently listed as being in beta, can be found in the Co-op Vs AI queue as a map variant. Rather than pit you and three friends against an A.I. controlled monster, The Deepest Dark seeks to provide something closer to the kind of linear co-op experience you'd find in other first-person shooters. Your main mission is to track down the Queen of the Gorgons in an overrun facility and take her down. If this kind of addition gains ground with the Evolve community, then additional "Co-Op Operations" could be added in the future.

After accidentally driving the UG-RV through multiple dimensions (which happens more often than you know), Uncle Grandpa, Steven Universe, Finn and Jake, Rigby and Mordecai, Gumball, and Clarence have to restore order by defeating the evil shard creatures that appear in his wake. Each character (or pair of characters, in the case of Finn and Jake, and Rigby and Mordecai) has their own particular strengths that work against the creatures, so teaming up is definitely the way to go. The game will support up to four player local, drop-in/drop-out co-op throughout the campaign.

Set within the same universe as Red SolsticeSolstice Chronicles: MIA puts you in the shoes of a "corporate grunt" that must fight off hordes of mutants infected by the STROL virus in order to track down a cure. At your side is a drone that can you can use to stem the tide of enemies. The title is currently aiming to feature a "skill tree system with Diablo 2 style progression, featuring 4 classes" and local co-op for two players, each of whom will be able to customize their own grunt however they see fit.

The most interesting mechanic of Lost Castle is sacrificing your previously fallen heroes in order to upgrade your current one. It looks like it works in a similar fashion to how you earned gold in Rogue Legacy that could be spent by future generations.

After viewing the announcement trailer, if you're reminded of a certain other game involving wizards and spells, well, you're not wrong. There are a lot of similarities between that title and this new one; even down to the elements that used to make the spells (Fire, Ice, Life, Death, and Electric). That being said, those games are really fun and I'm all for seeing different takes on it.
