Neon Chrome, the cyberpunk top-down shooter from 10tons Ltd, is now available on Steam. Players will have to fight their way through a procedurally generated "megastructure" in an attempt to take on and bring down the Overseer.
Nintendo 3DS fans may remember the co-op beat'em up Code of Princess from a few years back. Publisher Degica has stepped up to bring the title over to the PC and it will be launching on Steam very soon.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 brings back co-op proper to the series, featuring a full four player co-op campaign on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Gamers on the Xbox 360 and PS3 are missing out on the campaign unfortunately. That said everyone does get the four player co-op zombies mode which can be enjoyed either online or in local split-screen play. Take that Master Chief.
If you cast your mind back a couple years, you may recall a co-op arena brawler called FORCED. The game was notable not only for its co-op play, but the story behind its developer, BetaDwarf, as well. Initially a PC only release, there were plans for it to come to consoles, but it got delayed. Well the wait is over and the game will finally be available to play on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One today.
This week's CORA features less subscriptions and more co-op. Always more co-op.
It's a good week to go off and have some co-op fun in real life. Not much is hitting the store shelves or download scene as far as cooperative gameplay is concerned, but there are a few things to get you by. There's also a nice selection of single player games launching this week if that's your thing. I won't judge.
It's the last week of February. Do you know what that means? No more crappy weather! We can finally go outside and enjoy the beautiful sunshine! Wait, it's not beautiful where you live? Fine. Move somewhere nicer. If that's not an option you can drown your snowy sorrows in the warm embrace of these new co-op releases:
It's been a long time coming but Evolve is finally making its way out to the masses this week after both an Alpha and Beta test to ensure a smooth launch. While it remains to be seen if the game will go over without a hitch, what does remain in focus is the impressive replayability the game offers. Be sure to check out both our written and video previews of the near final builds of the game.
The Co-Op Release Alert is back, as we finally have our first big co-op release of the year. Sure Saints Row got a mini-stand-alone expansion, but this is our first full fledged release! On tap is the first of many games that were delayed from their original Fall 2014 release for that extra bit of spit polish.
And with this release, we believe, that most games are done for the year. You'll have all you'll be getting for 2014 in your gaming library. Is it a big huge AAA title or a little indie gem? Perhaps somewhere in between?
If our calculations are correct, there's just one new co-op game this week. And it's one that really is more co-op lite.
There's only one release this week, with it being a holiday week in the US, that's no surprise. In fact this week marks "Black Friday" - the day the holiday shopping season typically kicks off. It's the biggest shopping day of the year for most retailers and it usually marks the END of the big fall releases for video games.
And so we have come to the pinnacle of the fall gaming season; with not one.. not two.. not three... and not even four major game releases this week. There are five. And that's just the co-op games.
