The beta will include the same content as the previous one (i.e., three co-op missions, two different maps, daily missions) and will reward everyone who participates with some in-game goodies should they pick up the full game. If you still have the beta installed on your PS4 or Xbox One, then you'll just have to download a patch and you'll be good to go. Hopefully, everything will go smoothly with the beta's launch this time around. Details about the beta can be found over at the official website.

The beta will kick off at 2:00 AM UTC Friday, January 19, which is 7:00 PM EST Thursday, January 18. It'll end at 1:59 AM UTC Monday, January 22, which is 6:59 PM EST Sunday, January 21. You can start downloading the beta on Wednesday, January 17. If you're debating about whether or not this "MonHun thing" is for you, this is a pretty great way to find out. The beta has all 14 of the different weapon types for you to try out, and while it doesn't exactly guide you through all of the various systems, you can always team up with that friend who's always telling you to try it out.

Based on the news post announcing the beta over on the Monster Hunter: World website, it sounds like this will be the very same beta that was PS+ only a couple weeks ago. The beta can be played alone or with up to four friends online, and it will feature three hunting quests (Great Jagras, Barroth, and Anjanath). You'll be able to try out and use each of the 14 weapon types, and regardless of whether you team up with others or not, your friendly Palico will be along for the ride.

The beta will focus on the co-op mode of the game and include three different missions across two maps, but you can play those missions with up to three other people. It seems that this will be limited to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only (sorry PC players), and an Internet connection will be required. It's interesting, though, that the news post announcing the beta only mentions an Xbox Live Gold subscription being needed in order to play the game online on the Xbox One, nothing about a PS+ subscription on the PlayStation 4. Possibly that means that folks on the PlayStation 4 can enjoy the beta regardless and only need a PSN account. Participating in the beta will net you a few bonus goodies, including a Metal Gear Rex head, that will be available in the full game when it comes out in February.

The open beta will run from December 9 to December 12 and all you'll need to participate is a PlayStation Plus membership. No sign up or limited space thing here, just go download the beta when it goes up on the PSN Store next month. The beta itself will include three specific hunt missions (a Great Jagras and an Anjanath in the Ancient Forest, and a Barroth in the Wildspire Waste) and it will support four player online co-op as well. There will also be a variety of weapons, Mantles, and other goodies you can try, as Community Manager Yuji Araujo detailed in the PlayStation Blog post:

On Tuesday, the PlayStation 4 version of Marvel Heroes Omega officially kicked over from closed beta to open beta. It's free to download and play from the PSN store right now, along with a free character (Daredevil). Next month, Xbox One players will be able to get in on the action, too. The closed beta for Marvel Heroes O...

Before you can reach that beacon, however, you'll have to fight your way through the outlying settlement of Khazid Kro and track down a Dwarf engineer, and then fight off the Skaven menace through the Grey Mountains themselves and in order to locate a vault containing a special rune. After all that, you'll finally make your way to the top of the fortress to light the signal fire. Just as with "Drachenfels" before it, "Karak Azgaraz" will add two new weapons - a warpick for the Dwarf and a falchion for the Witch Hunter - that will only be available as rewards for the maps included in the DLC.

Back in September, the dev team posted that the PvP focused "Siege" mode "just hasn't worked out." Outside of a small devoted number of players, the cooperative "Survival" mode was proving to be far more popular. That presented a problem for the developer as devoting resources to address the concerns/issues of both player sets meant the game was never going to satisfy anyone. So, they decided that it would be best to drop "Siege" entirely and start focusing on "Survival" with the "next big update." That update is coming next month.

For those not quite as familiar with the game, Killing Floor 2 is a class-based online co-op shooter with a heavy emphasis on gore. You and five teammates battle an onslaught of nefarious creatures (zeds) which attack in waves, with time granted in between rounds to buy or sell weapons and armor. The PC version has been in early access since April of 2015, and you can check out our co-op stream for a better idea of what you'd be getting yourself into.

While I wasn't too enamored with what I played of the Story Mode it seems like quite a few folks had a blast playing the game. The numbers are broken down into a handy little infographic below, but the most telling factor in all of this will be how long folks are still playing after it launches in a week. It will have a solid two weeks of time before it's biggest competitor, Blizzard's Overwatch, arrives. So I'll be more curious to see the numbers on how many players bleed off in that time frame and how many come back to it in a month.

Lost Reavers pits you and three of your friends against a horde of undead and other foes as you navigate through a dungeon, solve some puzzles, search for a valuable relic, and then bring it back to safety. The player holding the relic will move slower and be limited in what they can do, so the others will have to protect them while they are moving it out. It appears that each of the four playable characters in the game offer a different play style as well, with one controlling similar to an FPS, another being third-person shooter, and yet another utilizing melee combo attacks.
