In a new post that went up a few days ago, the developer stated that there will be a few new additions to the co-op in the form of new "kits" (i.e., playable characters in the mode) and a new assault rifle (the Sovoa), as well as new limited time APEX missions every weekend. These updates will roll out over the course of the next couple months and there will be a special N7 Celebration event in November. However, the post also states that while there may be some scattering of updates to address quality-of-life reports from players, aside from that "there are no planned patches." In other words, this may be it for Mass Effect: Andromeda.

New Grand Theft Auto V DLC AvailableMatthew Squaire

Rockstar set its sights sky high, touting “...a massive range of new, customizable aircraft perfect for any mission along with expansive new aircraft hangars in which to stash your fleet of fantastic flying machines.” and while GTA V is almost 4 years old, its great to see a developer stand behind and believe in their game for an extended period (Skyrim, anyone?). It should be noted that the title, “Smuggler’s Run,” is openly referencing a game Rockstar published in 2000 for the PS2 and GameCube, and seeing a developer/publisher put things like that out there is fun, too. The full developer announcement can be found here.

This feature has been in development for a little while and it seems the team over at Mojang has finally gotten it nailed down. During a recent livestream, the devs showed off this functionality in action and promised that it should be arriving soon.

Things have been relatively quiet these past few months as the development team focused on addressing and fixing many of the stability and balancing issues the community has been reporting for the past couple years, along with implementing a few quality of life improvements. One of those came with the most recent title update, which added dedicated Terrorist Hunt servers so you and your friends can keep playing even if Frank's Internet dies for the 15th time. (GET IT TOGETHER, FRANK!)

The news came via a Dev Diary video last week as Executive Producer Zak Phelps and Creative Director Darren Sugg addressed the feedback they've received about game crashes across all platforms. The most recent series of patches, which have just about dropped daily since last Friday, have all been aimed at fixing those crashes and improving stability. Around the 3:15 mark they bust out the Survival mode news and it definitely sounds promising. The missions I've encountered thus far have largely been a variation of defending a single point for a set period of time, so having something with this sort of unique challenge where players will have to maintain a defense over the course of several in-game days could be fun. No specific dates are given for this big update, but they hope to get it out "end of August/early September."

The mode, called "Survival Arena," is essentially a different take on the existing Survival mode. Per Scott Lowe, Senior Communications Manager at Naughty Dog, the mode:

The co-op features are covered (rather cleanly, I must say) in the first couple minutes of the update video. If that's all you care about, then watch those two minutes, be joyous and happy, and enjoy the rest of the day!

In a blog post today, the game's publisher, Chucklefish, revealed their plans for adding co-op. When the feature gets added (more on that in a bit), up to three online players will be able to join another player's game as farmhands. These farmhands will be able to "farm, mine, fight, fish, forage, marry NPCs and take part in festivals." Farmhands will also have their own inventory, which can be managed by the host when your buddy isn't connected. Also worth noting is that "certain decisions can be made only by the main player: when to sleep, when to start and end festivals, and whether to side with Joja, for instance." This will be online co-op, only, too. It's specifically stated in that post that "[l]ocal multiplayer, split-screen... are not planned at this point."

The Interrogator Chaplain is the sixth playable class in the co-op mode and brings some (IMO) needed support skills for your Terminator squad, including an instant revive for any downed teammates, temporary invulnerability, and a way to temporarily reflect damage back at your attackers. Two new weapons, the melee-focused Purgatory sword and the ranged Stormbolter MK2, have been added as well. Along with these additions, some graphic tweaks and reworks have made the whole experience a lot smoother. Did I mention all of this is free if you own the game?

In the newest DLC, you'll be shifting from the hills and villas of Italy to the place where all this sniping madness began - Germany. Here's the setup:

"Arrogance Lost" included a number of fixes and balances, along with some new outfits you could buy for $1.99 each, but the biggest feature of this free DLC was a new challenge for all the dedicated players out there. The "Trial of the Foolhardy" was a "secret challenge map buried behind a puzzling veil in the Wizard's Tower." Fat Shark promised that the first team to clear said challenge map would receive the next 5 paid DLC for free. With the puzzle out there and the bounty set, it didn't take the community long to start diving in and trying everything they could to uncover the mystery and claim the prize. A number of discussion popped up in the Steam forum, along with a guide that kept track of everything that was being tried. Finally, the mystery was cracked, a "world first" clear was selected and awarded the prize by the developers last Wednesday, and there was much rejoicing. The guide I linked to earlier contains the necessary steps for gaining access to the map if you and your rat-slaying crew are interested in checking it out for yourselves.
