The Trine developer first announced their new game last August, showing off a lot of magic action that was fairly similar to another co-op title involving wizards and magic. There hasn't been much mention or updates from the studio since then. In fact, this is the first piece of news that we've heard at all after the initial announcement. So while there isn't much else to go on, or even a release date, at least we get to enjoy some nice footage of the game in action.

Crackdown 3 Will Support Play AnywhereJason Love

It's a little unbelievable to think about, but the title was first announced back at E3 2014. At that time, the Xbox One was still a new thing and the Xbox Play Anywhere program wouldn't even be announced for another two years. It's good to see that the title will keep with Microsoft's promise of first-party titles supporting this program. As a quick refresher, by participating in this program, buying Crackdown 3 digitally via the Xbox One store or Windows 10 store automatically entitles you to the other version. It also means cross-platform play and saves will be supported.

I've poked my head into the Early Access version of the game every so often to check out what's changed since the last update/patch, and things are still looking really good. I especially like the two new magic classes, Polymorph and Summoning, that were added in March. If you're a fan of cRPGs and/or tabletop gaming at all, I think Divinity: Original Sin 2 is going to scratch that particular itch even better than its predecessor.

Those three are perhaps the biggest titles on the full list, but there are a few other good deals in there:

The title is now live via Steam Early Access, but we were able to get a sneak peek at it yesterday evening during our regular Monday night co-op streams. None of us were overly familiar with it, so we do some bumbling about but eventually start figuring things out. The entire campaign can be played cooperatively with up to four friends online and every level of the campaign starts you off with nothing more than a knife. You'll pick up new weapons by either taking them from defeated enemies, or by finding them. Each level you'll also acquire new abilities that can be leveled by acquiring ability points, which can be acquired by completing certain mission objectives or by finding ability point pick-ups scattered around the level. Those abilities reset at the start of the next level, so you'll always be scrounging for weapons and ability points, which adds an interesting survival feeling/twist.

The full patch notes can be found over at the Ghost Recon Wildlands website, but here are the key co-op takeaways:

When we looked at Rogue Stomers last year, we saw a title that had a lot of promise if the developers decided to continue supporting it. While it's been some time since we checked in on things, that's exactly what Black Forest Games has been doing in the past year. After the console version was out the door back in October, much of the development team's efforts seem to have gone into fixing some of the bigger sticking points. One of those was how experience was earned when playing locally; specifically, players other than "player one" couldn't earn experience at all.

The game is touted as being inspired by Robotron and Smash TV, the latter of which is one of the all-time favorite titles of our founder, Nick Puleo, so that's certainly promising. The former is likely due to Housemarque teaming up with Eugene Jarvis, the developer behind Robotron: 2084, for this one. It seems like an ideal pairing, considering how much Housemarque has been bringing those classic shooters into the modern age with all kind of splendid special effects.

The game features local co-op for up to four players, with AI available to fill in any available slots.  The goal of each play session is to survive consecutive nights with your anthropomorphic pals, unlocking weapons and superpowers along the way.  You'll face off against a plethora of classic baddies, like, you know, lunch ladies and Abraham Lincoln.

In Destiny, if you wanted to do the Nightfall Strikes or the Raids, and didn't have a dedicated group of friends you could call upon, then you were out of luck. Bungie has come up with a way to try and make all of that content accessible to everyone with the inclusion of in-game Clans and a feature called "Guided Games," which will match up solo players with friendly clans to complete those very activities. The example given during the event was that if you want to check out the new Raid, but don't have a group of six friends, then you could hop into a Guided Game with a group of folks from a clan that's willing to help players through. Who knows, maybe you'll all hit it off and you'll find some new friends with whom to play. I had some pretty positive experiences using things like DestinyLFG and even the forums to play through that stuff in Destiny, so this is a solution for which I'm cautiously optimistic.

Yacht Club Games announced on Monday that the local co-op patch is available for the PC, PlayStation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo Wii U. With the way auto-updating works these days, chances are the patch has already been applied to your version of the game. The developer even posted up a handy little Co-Op Manual to answer those important questions like "What campaigns support co-op" (only the main Shovel Knight campaign) and "Will co-op come to more campaign in the future?" (not at this time). Unfortunately, this local co-op functionality is only supported on the console/PC versions and it is not available for the 3DS or Vita editions.

Warner Bros and TT Games announced the new LEGO title earlier this week and even have a little teaser/trailer that lets you know that the real video to tease the game will be revealed at a later point in time (next Tuesday, to be exact). This time around, you'll be facing off against Kang the Conqueror as he attempts to muck about with both time and space. There's a new four player multiplayer/competitive battle mode that's being added and an open hub world area known as "Chronopolis." It's unclear if that four player capability will transfer over into the co-op side of things for the campaign, but we'll certainly keep an eye on it.

Capcom has shared a couple videos with us to show off how the past 5 years have been treating Resident Evil: Revelations, and I've got to admit, it's looking pretty decent.  The two videos below combine for about 8 minutes of gameplay footage, so if you're just dying to see what the game will be throwing at you (and somehow didn't see it over the past five years), now's a great chance to.
