The title will support four players locally throughout the main campaign with each player being able to customize their little robot of death and mayhem. There's an update planned, as well, that will add a new campaign (set in future Las Vegas) to enjoy with your friends, new weapons, new minibosses, and a melee combat system. No word on when that update will drop, but it will be available on the Xbox One and PC when it does arrive.

Local Co-Op Added to Real-time Tactics Title We Are the DwarvesJason Love

In the main game, you control each of the dwarves - Forcer, Smashfit, and Shadow - as you battle the denizens of the foreign world. If the names were any clue, each of these brusque characters has his own unique set of abilities, which you'll have to choose how to employ in order to win the day. Think X-COM with Dwarves.

The local co-op mode, which you have to enable from the "Options" menu, allows you and a buddy to play through the entire campaign together. The second player has the same move set as the first player, but it's the first player that determines what moves are available as he/she is the only one who can change the equipment loadout and purchase upgrades. All progress is saved to the first player's profile, too.

If you own a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you can now purchase and download the game. It includes all content from the recently released Rage of Demons DLC, which lets you team up with Drizzt Do'Urden for some adventures in the Underdark, as well as all of the other content that's been added up to this point, such as being able to play as a drow or tiefling.

The mode itself will feature two different scenarios from the multiplayer side of things, Walker Assault and Fighter Squadron, and will let you adjust the difficulty of the bots to suit your needs. The local co-op option is for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game only, but it appears that Skirmish will support two player online co-op based on a Twitter response from one of the game's devs.

There's a great visual style to the game; almost a mix between H.R. Geiger and a variety of tribal cultures. The game is still a work in progress so details are a bit sparse at the moment, but the developers have confirmed that the title will support a full co-op campaign for at least two players. That number may increase depending on how development goes and some additional co-op features, e.g., drop-in/drop-out, combo co-op, may get added as well should that happen.

The Scout Mode will encompass separate missions in which players can engage to battle the mysterious Titans. Each mission will be set in an iconic environment from the anime and require the team to complete certain objectives. While the mode is separate from the campaign, players will be free to use and upgrade their weapons/gear regardless of what you're doing.

At the end of May, the development team pushed a new build to their test center that included a co-op vs A.I. multiplayer bots mode. The co-op mode has gone through some testing with those folks and it sounds like it should be added to the Early Access version of the game soon enough. In the latest update, Descendent Studios stated that the "next update will include online co-op play, the Warlock and Goliath ships, and much more."

The one-man team behind the game, Pascal Bestebroer, has been working hard to improve upon the original. For starters, the procedural generation that determines not only the layout for a dungeon floor also takes into consideration any quests that the players may be assigned. There's a pretty interesting blog post about it on the Orangepixel site, for those interested in seeing some of the "behind the scenes" stuff. Along with an improved level generator, the roster of characters has been increased to eight. The Wizard, Warrior, Elf, and Valkyrie can be joined by the Thief, Paladin, Mage, and Barbarian, once you unlock them that is.

Inquisitor - Martyr's gameplay will be action-RPG focused and it appears it will also incorporate some of the "base of operations" ideas seen in Neocore's previous titles. The campaign itself is split a little. There's the single-player campaign that will focus on exploring and uncovering the secret of an abandoned fortress-monastery, the Martyr, and there's the "Inquisitorial Campaign," or the open-world map that will have a variety of missions to undertake. Some of those missions will allow up to four players to play together.

Details about this mode are sparse for now. In the press release, all that was mentioned of this mode was "an original cooperative Zombies mode that takes players on a wild ride through a new storyline with unique gameplay features and mechanics." So whether we'll see some of the same mechanics that were seen in the gameplay video shown during E3, or something different altogether, we'll have to wait and see.

In the PS Blog post, producer Richard Wood answers all of these hot burning questions. Loot is not instanced per player so whatever drops is fair game. As the game supports local co-op only, though, presumably you and your buddy won't be fighting too much over who gets what. You're also free to drop items at any time for your friend, or even throw them at him or her. This sharing extends beyond just loot, too. When a player revives another player, the player that is doing the reviving shares their life with the player getting revived. So, if player one has 50 HP and revives player two, both will have 25 HP.

There weren't a whole lot of details provided about the zombie mode for Infinite Warfare, unfortunately. Activision stated that it will feature a whole new storyline and new mechanics, but that's about it. More information about the zombies would be given "later this year." Hopefully those details will include how many players will be supported and whether it will be part of the game at launch or added in later as part of DLC.
