The announcement from the developer can be read in full here but the best parts highlight that the game will feature a “True Co-Op experience” with 4-player Co-Op. For the game itself, the team at Cellar Door Games took inspiration from classic beat ‘em ups and hopes to follow suit much like Castle Crashers before it. We here at Co-Optimus always love the sound of Castle Crashers-esque Co-Op, so this is fantastic news.

Epic Loon Gameplay And Plot RevealMatthew Squaire

Epic Loon is set from the perspective of a person watching movies, while the player controls aliens who have invaded the movies as their actions change the film. There are four playable characters (Cap, Gro, Tri and Bou) but unfortunately we only catch a brief glimpse of them in the interview video below. Macrales Studio YouTube channel features both the videos below, where highlights from the former come in the form of the game’s platforms being revealed (PC, X1, PS4, and, if possible, Switch) and the estimated release date (2018 with console ports to follow before Q2 of 2018).

This special challenge is a separate mission you take on outside of the main story campaign. It can be taken on alone or with your usual co-op crew, but regardless, be prepared. The Predator can cloak, use its Plasma Cannon and Smart Disc, and can freely run around the treetops in order to better get the drop on you. Senior producer Nouredine Abboud even hints that the nuclear option is always on the table. Should you come out on top in this encounter, however, then you'll be rewarded with the Predator's Wrist Blades and helmet, which allows you to turn on that iconic Predator heat vision.

In all seriousness, good on THQ Nordic for actively working to preserve video games and bring them into a modern era. Titan Quest was my go-to action-RPG for the longest time and every so often I'd get a hankering to play it again. THQ Nordic sated that feeling when they released the Anniversary Edition last year, and then weirdly intensified it with the DLC release last month. Now, I'm waiting to play it again until it's out on the console, a phrase I never thought I'd say about it.

Interestingly, while the title will be removed from Steam, Xbox Marketplace, and PlayStation Store, the game itself will still be playable. Per the announcement on the official website, the servers will remain up "indefinitely after December 31, 2017 so you can continue your adventure throughout the Forgotten Realms."

The game will feature four player online co-op throughout the main campaign. Each player will assume the role of one of four playable characters (the first, Aidan, is shown off in the new trailer) and each one will have his/her own unique abilities and progression via a skill tree. In a way, this doesn't sound too dissimilar to the different classes (Mastermind, Enforcer, Ghost, Technician, and Fugitive) from PAYDAY 2.

While there may be some shared ideology between the two titles, there's a definite gulf of difference between Nine Parchments and Magicka. The latter was more focused on having players memorize certain key/button combinations in order to make use of their spells and really leaned hard into the chaos that comes with friendly-fire. Nine Parchments, on the other hand, feels more like a twin-stick action RPG. There are a ton of unlockables in the form of purely cosmetic hats and game-affecting staves, and each of the nine playable characters (all but two have to be unlocked) offers something a little different.

In 2016, a mobile shoot ‘em up called Sky Force Anniversary made its way to consoles. Despite the humble origins, it proved to be a surprisingly robust and addictive game. Now Infinite Dreams has released the sequel Sky Force Reloaded on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam. With two-player local co-op and loads of new content, Reloaded just mi...

Based on what's said in the trailer (see below), it sounds like this trial will provide your co-op buddy of choice the ability to play through the entirety of the campaign with you online; no time limit or "play to certain point." When the title was debuted at this year's E3, Josef talked about how the entire thing has been designed to be a co-op experience that requires a second person to play it, ideally on the couch. If you don't have a local co-op buddy, then the free trial will provide an avenue for you to still enjoy it. One person buys the game, and your buddy can download the co-op trial to play through it with you. That's it.

The central story of MechWarrior 5 revolves around a young mercenary (that's you) being suddenly thrust into the leadership position of a mercenary squad in the midst of the Third Succession Wars (here's a link to some background about what that means if you're interested in getting into the lore). You'll have to make some choices as the campaign (and years) progress, which will affect what happens with your squad during the course of the campaign. Of course, you could do all of this alone with the A.I. controlling the other members of your squad, or you could invite some friends into your game and have them pilot some mechs with you!

The main idea behind the game is that you construct a deck comprised of things like characters, equipment, and beneficial effects in order to guide three heroes through a preconstructed encounter deck. In other words, it's you vs a deck that plays itself. When playing with a buddy, each player constructs their own deck and chooses their own set of heroes. The game encourages table talk between allies so they can best plan out their strategy, and basically draws the line at having the players show one another their cards (in more formal tournament settings; when playing at home with a friend, anything goes!) There a variety of encounters to play through, and more have been added over time via card packs.

Since announcing the game this past June, the Swedish developer has been pretty quiet on details about the title. With last night's trailer, it appears that we'll be getting more info with greater frequency now. The main focus of the two-minute video is the moment about halfway through when a bunch of monsters bust through a door and attack everyone. Prior to that, things are pretty quiet as four people make their way through some underground area in search of a vault. It's all very moody and while there are familiar beats (i.e., "we're busting into a place to steal some stuff and get out"), the part where "things go bad" and you have to try to get away looks hectic. You're not setting up defensive areas to trade bullets with cops, instead you and your buddies are working to just survive against a horrific swarm.

It’s worth noting that the demo I played had no co-op to it, it was strictly a 10-minute single-player affair. There were two playable characters (the Empire soldier, Markus, or the Waywatcher, Kerillian) and none of the progression or loot systems were available to try or even peruse. Despite this, there were a few things of note that made me more intrigued in this game; specifically, the way the two characters felt different from one another, and the possibilities that the career paths will present for each hero.
