Both characters have their own unique movesets and weapons, and additional characters can be unlocked by completing certain objectives in the game. The console versions of 20XX will also include two characters that were released as DLC on the PC, Hawk and Draco.

[E3 2018] EA Reveals New Co-Op Platformer Unravel TwoJason Love

The development team wanted to shift the focus a little bit this time around for Unravel Two. Where the first game involved controlling the anthropomorphic Yarny as it revisits the memories of its owner's life and the love that connected them all, the second game focuses on the journey and bond that forms when two people set out on an adventure together. Here's how Martin Sahlin, Creative Director at Coldwood, described it during the presentation:

The title will support online co-op for up to four players, so you and your buddies can all take a bus and drive around the city. Try your best not to run into each other or play chicken, though, ok? People are depending on you to safely take them from one location to another. Bus Simulator 18 will also launch with mod and Steam Workshop support, so you can expect some rather interesting community developed add-ons to spice things up a bit.

The game originally debuted on PC back in October 2014. You can read my full review here, but the quick summary: I really enjoyed it. The combo/"Fatality" mechanic introduced an interesting way to approach combat - as you had to juggle a little bit of risk/reward for clearing enemies vs getting the most money (used to revive and buy upgrades) possible - and the "evolving" bosses added another layer of strategy for how you chose to tackle, and in what order, each level. If you're a beat-em-up fan, I think it's definitely worth checking out, especially on the Switch where the "play anywhere" nature means there's always a couch (or bench, or chairs + table) nearby.

There's a certain "Fallout meets Fortnite" vibe I get from seeing the game in action. While there are in-game crates you'll earn from playing that provide you with new weapons, defenses, and a boat-load of customization items for your in-game character, the devs have made a point of stating that there are no microtransactions, so the only way to get those crates is when you get one from gaining enough XP. The main game mode pits you and your buddies against a few waves of foes before the final "boss" wave, while the "endless" mode lets you go until you're finally overrun.

We've embedded the full video below if you want to check out everything that's in the works, but here are the few co-op highlights (along with their time stamps).

Available now on PS4 in North America, and Feb 7th in the EU, followed by an Xbox One release on Feb 9th, Bleed 2 takes you and a buddy through a blissfully punishing run-and-gun romp across the world.

While the developer's past couple titles have been variations of the cyberpunk idea and played around with some different gameplay mechanics, Tesla vs Lovecraft is a little more in-line with their most famous shooter: Crimsonland. Rather than progressing through a series of levels, you'll be dropped into an arena and will have to take down all of the Eldritch horrors you can. As you kill Lovecraft's minions, you'll level up and earn new perks (such as doing increased damage, or firing more bullets per shot) that will be used for the rest of the time in that arena (i.e., once you beat the arena or die, they go away). There are also permanent perks/upgrades that you can acquire by completing daily challenges.

Set in 120 A.D. England when the Romans occupied a significant portion of the island, the Ninth Legion is preparing to continue their march north into what is now Scotland. You and your co-op buddy will play as one of three characters - Cardoc, Brennus, and Guinevere - and stop the Romans' advance. If you're into history at all, this is a pretty interesting take on an event (the legion's sudden and mysterious disappearance) that is still speculated upon to this day. Plus, it's got a pretty sweet animated style.

The 7v7 arcade sports title will get an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release on Friday, January 19, 2018. Much like the PC version, four player local co-op will be supported in the Arcade, Season, and Playoff modes. Each player will play together on the same team against a team controlled by the A.I. One player will be the quarterback and call the plays while the remaining players will each assume a different position on the team, such as running back, safety, wide receiver, or center guard.

 Nioh: Complete Edition (PC) - supports up to two players online throughout the main missions, and up to three players online in the special "Abyss" mode. Team Ninja's excursion into the realm of a "Dark Souls-like" is absolutely fantastic. While fans of Dark Souls might miss the interconnected world/exploration attributes of that series, the set mission structure of Nioh provides a better way to hop in and out at your own pace. While the co-op play can be a bit a confusing (one player has to complete the specific mission their buddy is attempting before they are allowed to their game), there's a lot of fun to be had. The Complete Edition includes all DLC released for the game.

To maintain his lifestyle, Octodad must continue to blend into human society. Understandably (being an octopus), this is a struggle. The co-op mode tasks up to four players with controlling Octodad's tentacles. You can learn more about how that works in practice in our Co-op Review, but it seems to me that the Switch may offer a stronger implementation of this goofy form of co-op than the game's other platforms.
