The coolest giant robots vs humans co-op game to come to our attention.

If Left 4 Dead and Shadow of the Colossus Had a Baby, It Would be Outrise

What if we told you that there's a new co-op shooter game currently in development that combines elements of both Left 4 Dead and Shadow of the Colossus? No, we aren't joking around here, it's already a year in the making. Bringing together various developers from Crytek, Ubisoft, and even Adhesive Games (the creators of Hawken), Outrise aims to include a mashup of these two extremely popular video games in what seems to be the best ways imaginable.

The Crew Features Co-Op Racing and a Massive World to Explore

Announced during the hubbub that was E3 2013, The Crew is shaping up to be one extraordinary game. In development by Ivory Tower studios and published by Ubisoft, the game is a persistent online racer built from the ground-up with social and co-op play in mind. Join in, team up, complete missions and head out for a drive across the USA. But here's the real kicker: the game's world is over 3,100 square miles (5,000 km) in size. The New York map alone is as big as Liberty City from Grand Theft Auto IV. So when you do fancy that drive, you'd better be settled in for the long haul.

Rainbow Six: Patriots Will be a Next-Gen Game

The Rainbow Six line of games has been a long established franchise spanning many years and a multitude of platforms. Originally announced in 2011, Rainbow Six: Patriots was supposed to be a current-gen game that would be released on Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3. Ubisoft recently revealed that they would be pushing back the game to next-gen. Tony Key, a Ubisoft marketing director, stated that that "Rainbow 6 got caught in the transition of going to next-gen and essentially we're figuring out 'well, are we making the right game for the right hardware systems?'"

We'd love to see more of this on the big screen!

Two Rayman Legends Trailers Showcase Absolutely Vibrant Arwork

Rayman Legends is quickly approaching release time. From what we saw at E3, it’s going to be one of the best looking (art-wise) co-op titles on the Wii U. But since this game will be releasing on most consoles now, practically everyone will be able to play this visually vibrant, stunning game come August. But just to grab a bit more eye-candy, we had a few new trailers pop up from Ubisoft that are def. worth watching once.

Tom Clancy universe in a whole new light

Ubisoft Reveals Next Gen Online Shooter - The Division

E3 has officially kicked off, and video game news has been showered upon the the world in torrents of information. One of the games that was revealed yesterday during Ubisoft's E3 2013 press conference was a game set in the Tom Clancy universe by the name of The Division. The Division takes a unique spin on the Tom Clancy mythos, asking the question of what happens when the big disaster strikes. The game world of The Division assumes a form of a dysotopian and anarchistic homeland. Cue "the division," a group of highly trained operatives tasked with rebuilding what was once lost.

And it's bringing some exclusive content with it.

Rayman Legends Heading to Vita

Good news for Rayman fans who hate sitting in front of the TV to play games. The famously delayed and formerly Wii U-exclusive platformer Rayman Legends is now heading to PlayStation Vita, releasing alongside the console versions later this year. The game packs all of the same content as its non-portable companions, adding in some extras because Ubisoft probably still feels a little guilty about that whole delay business. Let's just be quiet and milk this until launch day, ok?

New Mission Types for Splinter Cell: Blacklist

For those that have been following news on the latest installment in the Splinter Cell series, Splinter Cell: Blacklist,  you may have noticed an emphasis on the cooperative aspects of the game. Focusing on a new gameplay philosophy that centers around the cohesion between two players, the cooperative play is being balanced and fine-tuned for an immersive experience. We talked about the way that the enemies, as well as the players, will rely upon one another to overcome obstacles and eliminate the opposing force in a previous article. For now, let's take a look at two new gameplay modes that will be present in Blacklist.

Fisher and Briggs Own Baddies in Splinter Cell: Blacklist Co-Op Trailer

We’re only a few months off from having Splinter Cell: Blacklist in our hands, so it would be a fitting time to get pumped up for the game. Putting two co-op partners in the shoes of stealth veteran Sam Fisher and newbie Isaac Briggs, they can easily use creative combat and stealth strategies to their team’s ultimate advantage. Two heads are better than one, and this official co-op trailer shows us why.

An in-game virtual skin, not, you know, real skin.

Pre-Order Rayman Legends, Get an Assassin's Creed or Splinter Cell Skin

You want skins? Rayman's got skins. Three of 'em, to be exact. The much-anticipated but also sadly delayed Rayman Legends is now getting a pre-order bonus unique to each system it launches on. Grab the Wii U or PlayStation 3 versions and you'll get an Assassin's Creed skin for either Rayman or Barbara. Go the Xbox 360 route and you'll nab some night vision goggles straight out of Splinter Cell. Sort of unusual for a Rayman game, but a bonus is a bonus.
