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.

Shoot 'Em All Up in Overdriven ReloadedJason Love

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:

I had mixed feelings about the game and didn't feel its co-op was all that strong, but certainly the game will look pretty good (and be easier to play with a friend) on a big TV. I mean, even the devs seemed to recognize that a couch is better for "couch co-op."

Castles features three modes: Story, Survival, and Competitive. All modes support two players locally, though the Story and Survival modes are the the only two that are cooperative. The main goal throughout each of the 50 Story levels is to match up blocks with the same icon on them in order to gather up construction tools and materials so you can build the tallest tower in the kingdom. Once you feel comfortable with the controls and gameplay, test your skills in Survival to last as long as you can.

If you've never played the game, The Escapists is all about doing favors for your fellow prisoners, crafting gear (like pickaxes and shovels), and completing your daily duties all while trying to concoct and execute an escape plan. That same gameplay will be the main focus for The Escapists 2, but this time you'll be able to do it with up to three other players.

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.

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.
