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.

Venture into the Deepest Dark in Evolve Stage 2Jason Love

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.

With update 2.05, there's an option now to queue up for Co-Op vs AI matchmaking, similar to what Blizzard's Overwatch does. This new queuing option will allow you and up to three other players team up to hunt and take down an AI controlled beast. Characters will still earn experience in this mode, and you'll also be able to earn Silver Keys, so if you prefer playing this way instead of against another person, it's a completely viable option.

The main campaign will take you from the shores of Midgard to the frozen wastes of Niflheim and the blistering landscape of Balheim. Defeating foes in combat nets you their blood, which you'll collect and sacrifice to the gods for gifts. You'll also be able to specialize in different weapon types, like swords, bows, and spell staves, to further customize your character to be the killing machine you want him or her to be. The campaign is cooperative throughout and will support two player co-op throughout via online play. Local co-op is mentioned on the game's Steam page, though it is not mentioned anywhere else, so we're waiting to confirm that before putting that feature into our database page.

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.

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.
