If you remember looking at/checking out Space Hulk: Deathwing back in 2016 when it was first release on PC, here's a quick recap of the big changes/updates to this version:

Roguelike Action Platformer 20XX Available Now on Switch and PS4Jason Love

The title features two player couch or online co-op throughout the main game mode, with each player controlling one of the two initial characters: Nina and Ace. Both characters have their own unique movesets and weapons, and additional characters can be unlocked by completing certain objectives in the game. The console versions of 20XX will also include two characters that were released as DLC on the PC, Hawk and Draco.

It sounds like the PC version of the game will, at least initially, just be the "base game," i.e., Deviljho and Lunastra, two monsters that have been added to the console versions, won't be there at launch nor will many of the events. That content will get added in at a later date, but no timeframe has been specified just yet. What's more, based on what producer Ryozo Tsujimoto told PC Gamer, the game's visuals on the PC "will have parity with the console versions but we're considering releasing a free update after launch." So, the bad news is that PC players will (more or less) be hopping into the same Monster Hunter: World that launched on console back in January. The good news is that it sounds like they'll be pushing to get updates to the PC version much faster.

That's not all, though. The Canadian developers are getting even more ambitious this time around and revealed a new gameplay mode, currently titled "Codename: Railjack," where you and up to three buddies will all pilot a ship together as you engage in some real-time combat against A.I. enemies. What's more, you'll be able to hop into this mode directly from the Venusian landscape. However, don't get too excited just yet. While the "Fortuna" update is planned for a 2018 release (for the PC, at least), the Railjack mode won't be a part of that. It'll arrive sometime later.

The "physics-based puzzle platformer" made its debut on the PC in 2016 at which time it only supported two player couch co-op. The console versions were released in May and December of 2017 and also supported two player couch co-op only, but in the middle of those console releases, the PC version got a free update that added eight player online co-op. The console players have been asking for that same update ever since.

The summer heat is officially here to stay. For those of us lucky enough to game from air-conditioned accommodations, MMOs can provide a cool escape from the simmering heat outside. Luckily, there are summer updates to keep us occupied. This month for MMO Co-Opportunities, we look at an upcoming bonus event for the Elder Scrolls Online and new cont...

While Slime-san’s retro arcade games offer a nice little slice of co-op fun, you can’t jump straight into them. First you’ll have to make some progress in the primary single-player campaign. Slime-san has four campaigns, the main one containing five worlds with twenty stages each.

The Warzone mode is, essentially, the cap to the end of what Neocore is defining as a "season" in the game, as they detailed in a post last month. The new season will kick-off sometime later and introduce, among other things, a new enemy faction (the Dark Eldar), new gear, and a new level cap. As for the Warzone itself, the mode introduces five narrative stages that have their own storyline, which plays out across 10 battles (levels). Each battle challenges players with fighting off hordes of foes within the confines of individual rooms. Battles will also have modifiers ("hazards") that will change up the way you approach each one. For instance, in one battle, enemies may leave pools of acid when they die, or spawn a demon. These will be cumulative up to the final battle after which players will be able to tackle the "Endless" mode where they can set their own hazards and try to challenge themselves for better gear and for "Favours," which can be collected to take on a special "Nemesis" boss that, naturally, will have the best gear drops. Oh, and in case you were worried, you'll be able to play through all of it with up to three other players online.

Along with all of the additions above, the original posts boasts that “[W]e’ve added the ability for players to host their own Player Shops and exchange and sell items with each other anywhere in the game.”. This is the second major update to Dungeon Defenders II after the Power of the Ancients that came out last December.

Xbox Game Pass is available for $9.99 a month and while the July additions feature some classic games such as The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, they don’t feature that co-op goodness we here at Co-optimus enjoy. You can read the original announcement here, but we have included the full list of all of the releases below, with the co-op titles in bold.

SIEE is certainly no stranger to shutting down servers for games. They've got a whole site setup just for their region that lists what's already been taken offline and what's next for the chopping block. Curiously, it appears that Europe is the only region that does this.

It does not appear that this new split-screen mode is getting added to the PC version, so a little bit of a bummer there. However, given how well Diablo 3 fared on the consoles, I'm tempted to pick up Titan Quest on the Switch next month. Despite the fact that it definitely feels dated, it remains one of my favorite action-RPGs to this day because of how you can make some truly "broken" (i.e., overpowered) builds. There's a kind of lost art to allowing players to do that.

How could we be, when our eyes are fixated upon the latest map for the game's cooperative Zombies mode?  Titled "The Tortured Path", this next area takes players on a quest for Emperor Barbarossa's legendary sword, which they must then transport all the way to the dang edge of the world.  It sounds like quite the feat, but I'm guessing anyone in love with Call of Duty's longtime Zombies entries won't have too much trouble with it.
