There are a few things that, in my opinion, Eden Rising: Supremacy does right. For starters, it puts the whole "enjoy this game with your buds" idea up front by letting players create their own servers to which they can invite just their friends. While you can play the game solo if you like, it definitely feels like the kind of game that is more fun with one, two, or seven friends and working together. Because that cooperative idea is embedded from the start, there are a number of systems and mechanics in place that help facilitate that further.

Earthfall Gets Release Date and PublisherJason Love

The title is currently available via Steam Early Access with one campaign to check out, but once it launches in July, there will be two full campaigns spread across a total of 10 missions. Based on folks' time with that Early Access version, it sounds like the title is "Left 4 Dead meets aliens," with a couple twists along the way as you can 3D print your own guns and construct defenses to fight off your foes. That was very much the intent of the developers as, like so many of us, they were fans of the cooperative nature of that zombie shooter and the stories that emerged from players' time with the game.

While there is no set release date for the new content, receiving them for free is an unbeatable price. The announcement comes complete with a trailer showing off gameplay in X-Morph: Defense. It is easily one of the most visually appealing tower defense games which can be seen in the video below.

Both of the videos can be found below, with the first featuring “found footage” of a coach talking about survival, and the latter a nurse who struggles with infected patients and fellow survivors. Both of the trailers are intense and carry the dirty survival feeling that State of Decay 2 brings with it.

Battlezone: Gold Edition is a brand-new release on Xbox One, and the already-released PlayStation 4 and Steam versions have automatically been updated to Gold Edition status (thus making VR headsets optional on those platforms). All four versions support drop-in, drop-out four-player online co-op. Seeing as how the game is new to Xbox One, that’s the version we played for this story (on Xbox One X hardware).

To ensure things never feel too stale, though, Ubisoft has opened R6S up to the general public for the weekend, specifically May 17th through the 21st.  It should already be available to download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, so you can hop in as soon as you're able.  The download itself can be found on the game's product page for both consoles and through the Uplay launcher on PC.  Just a reminder - you'll need a PlayStation Plus membership if you're using Sony's system.

I'm not entirely sure who Destiny 2 is for anymore, and if I'm being brutally honest, I can't tell if Bungie entirely knows either. One of the biggest issues a portion of players had with the original Destiny was that the progression to get to the Vault of Glass raid (the initial endgame content) was long and arduous. Based on the latest expansion, I guess there are a number of players that miss that kind of grind as it's relatively easy to get to the new Power Level "soft cap" of 345, but it is a very long road to get to the hard cap of 385 (or even the recommended level of 370 for the new Raid Lair and Escalation activity). Unless you're ready to have 2 alts that are both the same class as your "main" so you can freely share gear between them in order to bump up your Power Level and make the most out of those "Powerful Engrams" you get from the weekly activities, you're most likely not going to get anywhere near that 370 level for several weeks.

Monster Couch's new game, Die for Valhalla!, is taking that belief to heart.  In it, you and up to three friends play as novice valkyries who are saving the world by - you guessed it - beating the tar out of things until the problem goes away.  As it so happens, the problem this time around is a Great Old One.  I typically don't think of cosmic horrors as something that can be punched into submission, but hey, if anyone can do it, I'd say it's the vikings.

Appropriately dubbed the "Overhaul patch," the update dropped last Thursday and in addition to "improved graphics," it also allows single player progress to be pulled into the couch co-op "Survival" mode and did some tweaking of the various levels and bosses. The full notes can be found over on Steam, but here's a quick rundown:

The co-op portions of the video begin at the 1:18 mark, but seeing the track painting in action is worth watching the full thing, which can be found below. If you have missed the previous videos showing off Trailblazers’ gameplay, they can all be found here at Rising Star Games' official YouTube.

This being a Civilization game, the patch covers a lot of ground in terms of bug fixes, additions, and general tweaks.  If you'd like to dig into them yourself, you can find the full list here.  In essence, the Joint War option has been adjusted, new Historic Moments have been added, and the AI considers a few situations with a bit more nuance.  Anton Strenger explains all of this below, in case you're more of a watcher than a reader.

If you do happen to hop in on the new content for Payday 2 be sure to pick up the new minigun as well, because there is nothing quite like coming home after work, grabbing friends and partaking in a relaxing robbery where you tote a minigun as you try to steal fantastical artifacts.
