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.

Hacktag Closed Beta and Steam Early Access Dates AnnouncedTally Callahan

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.

Details are sparse and not forthcoming with regards to that co-op mode. Apparently, all we get for now is the gruesome teaser image below. While the "Zombies" mode in the modern Call of Duty titles has usually been pretty solid from a co-op perspective, I was really hoping that Sledgehammer would maybe try something new. Like, I dunno, a full co-op campaign that's not a separate thing?

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.

"Stromdorf" will include two new story maps and one new weapon (the Executioner's Sword for Markus), which is one less of each than "Karak Azgaraz" had, for those keeping track at home. That's completely fine if the price is also less than past DLC, but no word just yet on what it will be. Here's what awaits you and your fellow misfits in this new adventure:

The sequel to the hit prison life/escape simulator, The Escapists 2, is still tunneling its way to sweet freedom/release this year. In the latest trailer, publisher Team17 is showing off a new prison from which you and your friends can attempt to bust out. As if the name alone (Rattlesnake Springs) didn't tip you off, this new "big ho...

It doesn't sound like there will be any modifications or alterations made for the PC version. You'll still get the enhanced graphics, the two new characters, new stages, and new bosses that were in the PlayStation 4 version. The four player local co-op will also be kept, so hopefully you and your buddies enjoy getting really close.

Troll and I is a platforming and puzzle solving game for up to two players, but at times, leaves one player to do nothing but wait for the other to progress. As the game carries on, elements from other more popular games can be seen, leaving Troll and I feeling like a soulless chore....

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, a remastered version of the 2009 RTS title, was initially put out there as an "Early Access" exclusive for anyone who also bought the recent sequel. The implication there was that it eventually would be available to buy on its own, and that day has finally arrived. Along with the updated graphics,&nbs...

The DLC, titled "Narco Road," weirdly doesn't continue with your character's progress from the main game. Instead, you're given a new character that's set to level 20 and set loose to tackle the 15 new missions. The reason for this kind of reset appears due to the shift in your employer. Rather than being part of an elite military strike team, you're now a mercenary working for the Santa Blanca cartel. You'll have to impress some smuggling gangs to get them on your side (apparently by doing sick stunts in cars/bikes/planes), while also battling a rival cartel.

When launching Alliance now, you'll be presented with an initial screen that lets you choose between the co-op mode and the PvP mode. Once you're in co-op, you'll be able to go through and do all the customization that you want; choose your faction, stylize your in-game avatar, outfit your ship, etc. Locke, Nick, Mike, and I certainly had some fun making some... unique characters when we checked out the Beta a couple months ago. The game has definitely gotten a little more polish since then and some of the faction/quest stuff is easier to parse, and you can also choose a map size (from one to four ships) in your custom matches if you don't have a group of 16 friends with which to play.

You can watch our run through the mode below, which takes around 15 minutes to complete each time. The default difficulty is fairly easy and the hard difficulty in the all heroes mode, becomes frustrating quite quickly.

Ok, so joking aside, this is some pretty creative design. The latest frame to join the space ninja ranks lets you create your own music that then gets played in-game when you use Octavia's abilities. The "Mandachord" allows you to build a song using percussion, bass, and melody tracks. Those tracks then provide the beats to Octavia's abilities, Mallet, Resonator, and Metronome. I can't speak to how well all that works out in the game itself, but the idea of it is really cool.
