Along with all of the additions above, the original posts boasts that “[W]e’ve added the ability for players to host their own Player Shops and exchange and sell items with each other anywhere in the game.”. This is the second major update to Dungeon Defenders II after the Power of the Ancients that came out last December.

Slay Mythical Creatures in Titan Quest With a Buddy on Your CouchJason Love

It does not appear that this new split-screen mode is getting added to the PC version, so a little bit of a bummer there. However, given how well Diablo 3 fared on the consoles, I'm tempted to pick up Titan Quest on the Switch next month. Despite the fact that it definitely feels dated, it remains one of my favorite action-RPGs to this day because of how you can make some truly "broken" (i.e., overpowered) builds. There's a kind of lost art to allowing players to do that.

A quick aside to give a big kudos to Ubisoft for their commitment to supporting their titles over the long-haul. These days, if a title isn't a big hit in the first month, it feels like it's quickly abandoned or given minimal updates/support. Not Ubisoft. They release a game and they say, "we're seeing this through to the bitter end," and it's worked out well for them (see: Rainbow 6 Siege's eSports community).

While The Division did have a bit of a rocky start, both Ubisoft and Massive committed to improving the game over the course of the past two years and are still updating it and patching it to this day. So, based on what was said during the press conference today, it sounds like the development team has been paying a lot of attention to player feedback and putting that directly into The Division 2. They specifically called out the work they've put into creating a meaningful endgame for players, stating:

There's a post up over at Xbox Wire that goes through everything that was discussed during the hour-long presentation, but here are the co-op highlights:

Back in January, the creative director, Andrew Spearin, left New World "to pursue other opportunities." As a result, the development team has had to do some shifting around and nix the single-player and cooperative story campaigns, and focus solely on the multiplayer modes and one co-op mode. From the January developer post about this:

Nevertheless, some interesting news on the game pops up every now and then.  In this case, it's the fact that 43 of Final Fantasy XV's cast of characters have been transported into Minecraft's procedural realm.  Assuming you're playing the Windows 10 edition, you can pick up the "Final Fantasy XV Skin Pack" for $3, which seems like a decent deal considering the amount of options it grants.

As a quick note before going any further, the mod is entirely free to download (10 Gb in size, and unpacks to the 30 Gb mentioned above), but you do need to own the game in order to use it. The title can be purchased via Steam or GOG.com.

We've covered Dauntless a few times in the past, and Tally even wrote up some impressions of the game last fall when it first entered Closed Beta. All in all, we found the game to be more approachable and easy to hop into than Monster Hunter (though World did a lot to address those particular issues). I haven't spent much time in it since that stream, but after playing a lot of Monster Hunter World this past month and a half, I'm curious to dive back in and check it out again. I'm always up for a good hunt!

Similar to the special Predator mission that popped up late last year, the new "Splinter Cell Special Challenge" mission will offer players that are able to successfully complete it some in-game goodies they can equip on their character. These include Sam Fisher's Night Vision Goggles, Proximity Mines (which are new), and Splinter Cell patch. As long as you complete the mission before May 2, you'll get those rewards/bragging rights. After that, you can still play the mission and listen to Michael Ironside's gruff intonations, but the rewards are off the table.

When I reviewed the game back in 2016, there were definitely elements that I enjoyed and felt Streum On Studio got right. There was, however, a lot of room for improvement. The developer felt the same way, apparently, as they continued to provide updates and new content for the PC version over the next several months (some of which we saw when we played the game last July). All of those updates will be included in the "Enhanced Edition" coming to both the PC and PlayStation 4 on May 22. That means if you pick up the game on that date, you'll get these features that weren't part of the title (or were mere shadows of what they are now) when it was initially released:
