Now Available for LEGO DimensionsJason Love

The two big packs here are the "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" Story Pack, and the "Sonic the Hedgehog" Level Pack. The former includes a new hero figure (Newt Scamander) and a new vehicle (the Niffler) along with six new levels that follow the story of the film/play/book. It also lets you change the LEGO Gateway on the Portal Pad to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) building. These story packs are the new tier of expansions for LEGO Dimensions this year, with the first one based on the new "Ghostbusters" movie from this past summer.

This month for MMO Co-Opportunities we take a look at Living World Season 3 starting up for Guild Wars 2, a large content-focused DLC and update hitting Elder Scrolls Online, and a major expansion...

Similar to the Ghostbusters "story pack," the Fantastic Beasts pack will include six new playable levels, a minifigure (Newt Scamander), what could be a vehicle or gadget (a Niffler animal), and a new configuration for your LEGO Toy Pad (based on the Magical Congress of the United States of America, or MACUSA, building). The pack is listed for 39.99 pounds sterling, which will translate to $49.99 over in the States, and appears to be slated for a November release.

Apex adds a whole new warzone into the game. Tanoa, a South Pacific island archipelago, has distinct geographical features which provide new opportunities to players. New weapons, gear, and vehicles are all available to expansion owners. Probably of most interest to the co-op community is the Apex Protocol 1-4 player co-op campaign. Apexis available now on Steam for $34.99 and, of course, requires ArmA 3 to play.

Summer’s officially here. We all know what that means: sun, heat, and MMO expansions. For this installment of MMO Co-Opportunities, we’ll be looking at upcoming expansions for Lineage II and Star Trek Online and discuss Wildstar’s launch on Steam....

Since the title's release, developer Reverie World Studios has been looking over the play data and found that people are spending a lot of time in the game playing Survival (presumably with friends). As that's the most popular mode, it only makes sense for the expansion to focus on adding new content to that mode, like new zombie units and new A.I. From the developer's notes about the planned update:

There have already been several new Play Sets released for Disney Infinity 3.0 that include classic Disney characters, but also Marvel and even the original Star Wars.  This is the first chance to play as some of the newest characters in the franchise:

After killing his son in "The Dark Below" (why did you do that?!), Oryx is looking for revenge and is coming after the Guardians. Considering the Hive kind of worship the dude as a god, that probably won't bode well. Then again, it's a video game so once you level your gear appropriately, you'll beat him, no sweat.

The new story missions feature a variety of new areas to see, new tasks to complete, and even some new tweaks on enemies to face. While there isn't any completely new races, the new varieties of Shanks likes the tracer or the Wolf Captain Vandal help mix things up. There's a new gun you'll acquire early on that feels eerily similar to the Halo 1 pistol but is an absolute treat to use. You'll find fully voiced dialog throughout the entire run with a brand new character as you hunt down the Wolves. It took us about two hours to complete the handful of missions, including the new strike - which you can watch below.

A couple of weekends ago at PAX East 2015, I had a private demo and interview for the recently announced Guild Wars 2 expansion, Heart of Thorns. What I saw and what the developers told me about the expansion is the focus of this month’s MMO Co-Opportunities: a GW2: Heart of Thorns Preview, if you will....

Summer for MMOs is usually graced with a bounty of content updates and news about upcoming content updates and expansions. This year is no different. Guild Wars 2 and Wildstar both received content updates at the beginning of the month while RIFT recently announced an upcoming expansion. Intrigued? Then read on....

The new Reaper of Souls Expansion looks like it is going to be great fun, allowing you to take on death him/herself with up to 4 players online.  Co-Optimus gave the original game a superb 4.5 out of 5 in our review, but also handed it the converted 2013 Golden Fiddy.
