The past couple Far Cry games have allowed for some limited "co-opportunities" in the form of raiding outposts or taking on co-op missions in a separate mode. For Far Cry 5, though, players will be able to create their custom character and then team up together to take down the Eden's Gate cult. The game also boasts the usual open world to explore, as well as an array of weapons to collect and customize, vehicles to crash into other things, and no doubt a small mountain of collectibles to gather.

New Content and Changes for Rogue Stormers on PCJason Love

When we looked at Rogue Stomers last year, we saw a title that had a lot of promise if the developers decided to continue supporting it. While it's been some time since we checked in on things, that's exactly what Black Forest Games has been doing in the past year. After the console version was out the door back in October, much of the development team's efforts seem to have gone into fixing some of the bigger sticking points. One of those was how experience was earned when playing locally; specifically, players other than "player one" couldn't earn experience at all.

The game is touted as being inspired by Robotron and Smash TV, the latter of which is one of the all-time favorite titles of our founder, Nick Puleo, so that's certainly promising. The former is likely due to Housemarque teaming up with Eugene Jarvis, the developer behind Robotron: 2084, for this one. It seems like an ideal pairing, considering how much Housemarque has been bringing those classic shooters into the modern age with all kind of splendid special effects.

Yacht Club Games announced on Monday that the local co-op patch is available for the PC, PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo Wii U. With the way auto-updating works these days, chances are the patch has already been applied to your version of the game. The developer even posted up a handy little Co-Op Manual to answer those important questions like "What campaigns support co-op" (only the main Shovel Knight campaign) and "Will co-op come to more campaign in the future?" (not at this time). Unfortunately, this local co-op functionality is only supported on the console/PC versions and it is not available for the 3DS or Vita editions.

The central conceit of the game is that you (and up to three of your local co-op buddies) take control over one of four Urican, astral demons that are used to being the "top of the food pyramid." After three mysterious entities arrive and change the world, the demons must fight for survival and recover their precious food source: the crystals. So you'll take 'em all down by utilizing some impressive weaponry, like missile launchers, and whatever power-ups you can nab, like speed boosts and something called "Bullet Time."

At its core, Cave Story can be lumped into the broad category of "Metroidvania." You explore a mysterious floating island, gaining new weapons and abilities as you progress that allow you to access areas you previously couldn't. There's more to it than that, however, and a pretty deep story as well. It's game that I can unequivocally recommend to anyone and the fact that it will finally have some kind of co-op option makes it even easier for me to do so.

There are a total of four scenarios you can tackle with a friend that have been included as part of this "Co-Op Assault" update. While this does sound like it's intended to use as a way of learning the game mechanics so you can then go on to battle against live human opponents, as a free-to-play title, nothing's stopping you and a buddy from just enjoying some occasional tank co-op this way.

The last we heard from Nerdook and Vertical Drop Heroes HD, the one-man development team had just wrapped up converting the game from a browser-based Flash game to a full-fledged PC title. Since then, he's been busy working on bringing the action RPG game to the current gen consoles, a venue that feels pretty appropriate for it as it's a fun/quick pick-up-and-play co-op title. Just as on the PC, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game will support two player couch co-op.

Similar to the co-op modes in previous entries, Survival is a wave-based mode that supports up to three players. You and your friends will have to hold out against Shoreline mercenaries and other foes for 50 waves while also completing specific objectives, such as defending an area or collecting treasures within a time limit. Every 10th wave you'll face off against one of the Pirate-Lords, who appear to have dipped into the ghostly/mystical side of things. The Survival mode will also include its own dedicated progression and challenge system that's separate from the multiplayer one.

While the graphics have gotten some tweaks, the big selling point here is the addition of new game-modes, all of which can be played cooperatively with three other players locally. The new modes include:

The game will actually feature both synchronous and asynchronous co-op for the campaign. What this means is that you will explicitly start up a campaign with your friend, each of you will get your own squad of Rangers to control and kit out as you like, and you're free to stick together or wander about independently. You can even continue playing the game if your friend isn't online, and vice versa. The actions you or your friend take within the world while the other is offline will still affect it, thus you could log in to some startling changes.

The most interesting part to Swordy is its control scheme. While it is a twin-stick based game in some ways, it also incorporate a fair amount of physics. In the competitive mode, your objective is to take out your fellow players by swinging your weapon around and attempting to hit them with it. In the new "Missions" mode, your goal is much the same, only its against AI opponents. There are only three missions available to play through cooperatively for now, but the developer has plans to add more in the future.

In action, the game certainly looks like a pretty classic beat 'em up. Each player appears to control their favorite Power Ranger and they can even combine their attacks to take down foes. Players will also be able to level up their Power Ranger to unlock new abilities. Here's a full list of all the title's features:
