There's been a lot of changes to Awesomenauts over the past year on the PC, including a spectator mode and a level editor via Steam Workshop, and it sounds like much of that was being done to set things up for the transition to free-to-play. The new 4.0 update is the precursor to this shift and includes some big changes to the game's progression system and the tutorial. Here's what's new:

Well... Sony, as it turns out, because Alienation will soon be available for free through May's PlayStation Plus lineup for all our EU readers.

Perhaps the biggest change to the game is the revamped character/player progression system. All level caps have been removed and each time you level a hero, now, you also gain a player level. Each time you gain a player level, you get a loot chest (sound familiar?) Those chests can contain a variety of cosmetic items, such as hero skins, emotes, sprays, and announcer packs, and you can use the in-game currency earned by playing (gold) to re-roll the contents if you didn't get that sweet Kerrigan skin you wanted. If you do get a duplicate item, it will automatically be converted into the new currency type, Shards. Shards are used exclusively for buying cosmetic items.

After going hands-on with Hacktag at PAX East, I'm looking forward to trying my hand at the game again (hopefully with less failure on my part this time). Not only is the game's difficulty quite challenging, but it requires a lot of coordination and communication between the two players.

To be honest with you, the setup's not extremely important here.  The world's presumably in trouble, and you and your co-op partner are called upon to save it once again.  By saving it, I of course mean swiveling those joysticks until every onscreen enemy has been reduced to pixelated dust.

After recovering the "Deathstorm" package, Karl now travels to the town of Niroli to uncover what, exactly, the Nazis had planned for the weapon. To do this, he'll have to sneak into the medieval town and rescue an important Italian scientist and his wife. Just as with part one, this new story mission can be played cooperatively online with a friend.

Osiris is the Xbox One sequel to the fantastic Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and whilst it may not quite live up to the first game, the sequel offers more in the form of 4 player online/offline co-op.  There are issues with connecting to a online game if someone drops in or out as the game needs to redesign the stages, but grab a few reliable pals and you have a fun action platformer that has puzzles that may lead to arguments - the best type of co-op.
