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 title certainly draws inspiration from the Left 4 Dead games, but it adds to it different classes to play and character progression. We had a pretty good time when we played during one of the alpha sessions, and are looking forward to getting our hands on it some more.

We got hands on with an early demo (single-player only, unfortunately) of the title last year, and the sequel definitely shows some promise. The ability to customize and specialize your hero should open up new gameplay possibilities when playing with friends, and the addition of the Chaos faction means you'll have to prioritize foes in the midst of combat. Hopefully the improved loot system will make getting new gear less of a chore.

The game has definitely made some strides over the past few years and been kept alive by the competitive gaming scene, but if you're more cooperatively minded, then you can enjoy the game's "Terrorist Hunt" mode. All of that will be available for free starting today on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, though it's worth noting that many of the operators and guns have to be acquired with in-game currency that's earned from playing. The free weekend will end on Tuesday, February 20, but all your progress will carry over into the full game if you decide to pick it up. More information about the free weekend can be found on the official website.

As this is a local co-op only title, Locke handled the actual playing while I provided the running commentary and thoughts on the game. Most of what's shown off in the recap video is from the first few levels, but I think you'll be able to get a pretty good idea of what the action and gameplay are like. The one aspect that we only begin to touch upon, and I wish we had more time to get into, is the way the tower defense sections play out and how they become more and more puzzle-like as you progress. Later levels introduce new playable characters that have different kinds of attacks, new structures/special objects they can construct, and new fusions that can be made by combining two or more characters' constructs. There's a lot going on during those defense phases and playing single-player vs playing cooperatively definitely changes things up.

The title supports two player local co-op or two player online co-op, with one player taking on the role of the Agent while the other is the Hacker. The goal is to infiltrate corporations and steal valuable intel that could bring them down. The hook here is that the Agent moves about and interacts with the physical world, while the Hacker can only influence things that are connected to the network. Thus, each player has a specific role to play and cooperation is definitely required. Locke and I played some of the title while it was still in beta last May and enjoyed our time with it overall!

The Monster Hunter series has always eluded me. The density of its systems, the endless grinding, and the esoteric style have all contributed to me bouncing off every title Capcom has released to this point. Then comes Monster Hunter: World. I have been enamoured with the game and simply cannot stop playing. I don’t know exactly what it is th...

A new version of a re-release makes its console debut on the One after being sequestered on the PC. With Microsoft's Play Anywhere functionality, you and three friends can huddle around your Xbox or your PC and 'shmup those space cows till there's nothing left.

Starting with version 5.2, a new, limited-time event will be running for players who, like you and I, enjoy a bit of cooperative gaming. It's called "Da Ji and the Legend of the Foxes", and it sports both a unique cel-shaded art style and a brand new horde mode.  Check out the trailer below:

In all seriousness, three years is a remarkable milestone for any game these days. To keep a community interested and thriving for that long when there's always something new/shiny coming out every second is no small feat. To thank their dedicated fans, Techland posted a little "thank you" video on YouTube and announced some exciting things that will be arriving in the days to come, including a new community event ("Undying Love") that will reward players with some new goodies just for participating.
