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.

Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor - Martyr Will Feature Co-Op MissionsJason Love

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.

When development first began on Stardew Valley in 2012, Barone had intended to incorporate a four-player co-op mode into the game. Game development, though, isn't easy and the mode had to be put off so the title could be completed and shipped. Thanks to the success it's enjoyed, though, that feature can be put back on the table and the title's publisher, Chucklefish, will work on getting it integrated.

Picking up where the last one left off, we'll continue the journey of Karl Fairburne as he now fights alongside the Italian Resistance as they work to take down Mussolini's regime. You'll be traveling through the majestic hills, villages, and vistas of the Italian countryside as you aim down your scope, line up the shot, and watch as some dude's skull gets very badly damaged.

One of the features that some folks have been questioning when the title was first revealed was the game's control scheme, which utilized the Wii U GamePad to control your ship and to shoot as well by aiming with the GamePad screen. Nintendo has apparently decided that those duties may be best relegated to two different control schemes. Thus, Star Fox Zero's co-op mode was born.

For anyone who is unfamiliar with the title, up to four players team up to try and make it to the surface of an alien world after their escape pod crashes on it. Each level tasks your team with first finding the exit and then successfully carrying your only power source to it. There's a catch, though. Every time you open a door, monsters spawn from the darkness to take down your crew and your power source. You can build offensive and defensive turrets for support, but the odds will increasingly be against you, so plan your moves carefully.

The mode, called "Warzone Firefight," is part of the bevvy of new content 343 Industries has been rolling out or in the works for Halo 5: Guardians. Announced last week on Xbox Wire, the exact details of the mode and what will be new/different weren't outlined, but it sounds like multiplayer progression carry over and vice versa. Hopefully, the mode will be a strictly PvE version of the game's popular "Warzone" multiplayer mode, which is something that some very dedicated Halo players have been petitioning 343 to add.

The title will still be free-to-play on the PS4, with a cycling roster of five gods (out of 70) from which players can choose to play. Similar to the PC and Xbox One versions, players will have the option of buying the "Founder's Pack," which unlocks all current and future gods, for $29.99. It's not a bad deal if you like the game as it guarantees you access to any/all new characters that are released later on. In addition to that, picking up the pack will get you access to the closed beta when it launches.

While the bulk of the game's action is centered around the competitive multiplayer, the co-op mode brings much of the same frantic action over. Players choose from one of four different weapons as they battle across an ever-shifting landscape. Here are just a few of the game's features:
