Sadly for PC players, the original Sniper Elite game doesn't support co-op (it was console exclusive), which featured the infamous sniper/spotter style missions.

Dead Space 3 and Dead Space 2 Added to Xbox Backwards CompatibilityMatthew Squaire

Dead Space 2 was originally released in 2011, with the aforementioned blog post giving the synopsis, "Engineer Isaac Clarke returns for another blood-curdling adventure in the sequel to the critically acclaimed Dead Space. After waking from a coma on a massive space city known as “The Sprawl”, the lone survivor of a horrific alien infection finds himself confronting a catastrophic new nightmare.

Rather than focusing on the grind for materials so prevalent in Monster Hunter style games, Toukiden 2 does something revolutionary: it concentrates on the more fun experience of slaying big creatures with your friends. Jason and Matt share their thoughts....

There's been a lot of changes to Awesomenauts over the past year on the PC, including a spectator mode and a level editor via Steam Workshop, and it sounds like much of that was being done to set things up for the transition to free-to-play. The new 4.0 update is the precursor to this shift and includes some big changes to the game's progression system and the tutorial. Here's what's new:

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.

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.

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...
