While there is undoubtedly a core player-vs-player component to the game, teaming up with four friends to take on an A.I. controlled team is fully supported. However, it's worth noting that those options are somewhat limited at this time. Originally, there were plans to allow up to four players to team up locally, online, via LAN, or some combination thereof (combo co-op). Things happen, understandably, during development and now it looks like the co-op is a bit more limited. You can play any of the available modes (Season, Playoffs, or Arcade [Play Now]) with up to four players locally with couch co-op (i.e., all players on the same PC looking at the same screen) using four game controllers. You can also play online with one other person.

Raiden V: Director's Cut Co-Op ReviewNick Puleo

When Raiden V launched in the Spring of 2016 for the Xbox One I was shocked and dismayed to see it was the first game in the series to not offer a co-op mode. Blasphemy I thought. The good thing is, developer MOSS thought the same thing. Now available on PlayStation 4 and PC is Raiden V: Director’s Cut - a definitive version of the game with ...

Sometime in the near future, Firaxis will be adding two such targets to Civilization VI:  Khmer and Indonesia.  Both have a slight water/faith focus, but before I give too many details, it'd probably be best to check out their accompanying videos to see it all in action.  First up, we've got Khmer.

Tom Phillips at Eurogamer published an article yesterday that brought all of this to our attention. While the news hasn't been officially confirmed by Warner Bros, the game's publisher, it appears some information was shared with Eurogamer from within TT Games, the developer behind LEGO Dimensions and pretty much all LEGO games. In an email to the entire studio, Dave Dootson (TT Games' Studio Manager) talked about the title in such a way that seems to acknowledge the project is coming to a close.

Choose to play as either the U.S. Marine Corps or the Imperial Japanese Army as you battle across seven different islands that were key to the Pacific campaign during World War II. When you're done playing through the campaign with your friends, you can hop into any one of the new maps to enjoy some old fashioned "comp stomping." The DLC also adds new vehicles, like the Stuart light tank, as well as new weapons, such as Flamethrowers and katanas.

The title was originally released as part of the "Xbox Play Anywhere" program, which meant that if you picked it up for the Xbox One or Windows 10, you automatically could play it on the other platform at no additional charge. While many of these titles also supported cross-platform play, curiously, Halo Wars 2 did not. That oversight will be corrected once the new update arrives sometime before the end of October (no specific date was given).

Based on some of the new info that Fatshark is putting out about the game, Vermintide 2 certainly sounds like it's shaping up to be a better game than the original... and that was already a pretty good four player co-op title. The fact more defined character progression - with the ability to choose a (for now) vaguely defined "career path" that affects your abilities and loadouts in addition to the new talent tree - is a part of this sequel is enough to make me interested. On top of that, they're also tweaking the loot system to provide more relevant loot for your character.

Now, wouldn't you know it, Ubisoft is planning to capitalize on its positive reception by releasing the game's first DLC, the "Ultra Challenge Pack".  There's some single player content in there, which revolves around a few extra difficult levels for you to sink your teeth into.  More importantly, though, the DLC contains "Cataclysm Kerfuffle", a two player local co-op campaign consisting of five new maps, each with their own harder version to unlock.

We're a couple weeks away from Spintires: MudRunner getting unleashed upon the world, and Focus Home and Saber Interactive want to ensure everyone knows there's more to do than just hitting your friend's vehicle with a log. The latest trailer for the revamped version of the curious mud/terrain deformation simulator shows ...

The original Destiny launched in 2014 across Xbox One, 360, PS4 and PS3. It was reviewed by our own Nick, Jason and Mike who gave it a 4 out of 5 for both the overall game and co-op. They praised its use as a foundation to be improved upon with Nick saying “You need to examine the potential a game has to see if it's worth your almighty dollar. Destiny is ripe with potential and Bungie has rarely not delivered. The first set of content and changes are already live. But based on what's there now, it might be tough to hold gamers' attentions long enough until it reaches that state.”
