Battlezone: Gold Edition will also include all content/DLC that's ever been put out for the game since its release two years ago. As Rebellion stated in the announcement, "That's all the tank skins, bobbleheads, and horns, as well as the Classic Mode based on the original, iconic 80s arcade cabinet." Nick reviewed the game when it first came out on the PlayStation 4 and while he had a few gripes with the VR experience, he absolutely enjoyed the co-op aspects.

Latest Warframe Update Adds New Weapons, Warframe, and Game ModeJason Love

Now before you go getting too excited, this new mode is wave-based/survival in nature. What sets "Sanctuary Onsalught" apart from the "Defense" or "Survival" missions is the way you progress to the next wave. First off, there's a timer that counts down until a portal will appear that then takes you to the next round/wave. So, you'll have to survive against an onslaught of enemies for that length of time. However, the second mechanic dictates whether or not a portal appears at all. Right below that countdown timer, there's a "Void Stability" meter that depletes over time. If it reaches 0, your run is over. To keep that meter from depleting and to fill it back up, you'll have to kill enough enemies and find some random pick-ups that are scattered about each area. The further you progress, the harder things get, but the better your rewards will be as well. If you want to get the new Khora Warframe, then you'll have to run this mode a few times in order to get all the necessary blueprints.

The announcement of this new "Siege" event came via the Capcom Unity Blog yesterday and along with the event there will be a content update (full notes here). Based on the language in the announcement, it doesn't seem like you'll be able to join in on this special hunt via the usual "Respond to SOS Flare." Instead, you'll either need to gather up all 16 members of your Squad at one time, or join specific Kulve Taroth sessions. Hunters are then divided up into four groups comprised of four hunters each, and while each hunting party will act independently in their own "instance" of the fight, all of the damage/investigation/part-breaking that's done to Kulve is pooled together across all of the hunting parties and all parties will get credit.

The new "Escape" mode allows up to four players to team up online to "beat the various challenges and defeat AI-controlled in your quest to escape from the depths of the mysterious pyramid in the heart of Siberia." Based on the gameplay video they released, it looks like you'll mainly be facing off against human "ghouls" as you make your way through different zones within the pyramid. It's a little less Left 4 Dead and a little more Halo, in a way.

In game development time frames can change pretty quickly, so this should be taken as a soft schedule rather than hard fact. Further, Barone has released pictures of 4-player Co-Op (via LAN) recently, which can be found here as well as below. While this news is exactly what we here at Co-Optimus like to hear, the inclusion of Co-Op is set to be a PC addition first before coming to consoles.

No hard details are known yet, aside from that "it will send you to new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies," which is as generic a statement that has ever been written. Bungie is saving the sweeter details for a Twitch livestream on April 24th, so we don't even know what the thing is about until then.

Similar to the special Predator mission that popped up late last year, the new "Splinter Cell Special Challenge" mission will offer players that are able to successfully complete it some in-game goodies they can equip on their character. These include Sam Fisher's Night Vision Goggles, Proximity Mines (which are new), and Splinter Cell patch. As long as you complete the mission before May 2, you'll get those rewards/bragging rights. After that, you can still play the mission and listen to Michael Ironside's gruff intonations, but the rewards are off the table.

While the primary focus of World of Tanks is its PvP mode that pits a 15 players against another 15 players, the console version of the game added a strictly PvE co-op mode in the form of the "Proving Grounds." Two players can team up online and work together to make their way through four different co-op scenarios. With the "Spoils of War" update, new co-op activities have now been added with the "War Stories" missions. These missions put players into an alternate history where World War II is still raging on. Each mission puts the players into the shoes of a different hero: the German Captain Karl Staupe, the American Sergeant Frank Martinez, and the Soviet Captain Anatoly Petrov. Interestingly, the Karl Staupe story also introduces a new mechanic to the game, tower defense.

When I reviewed the game back in 2016, there were definitely elements that I enjoyed and felt Streum On Studio got right. There was, however, a lot of room for improvement. The developer felt the same way, apparently, as they continued to provide updates and new content for the PC version over the next several months (some of which we saw when we played the game last July). All of those updates will be included in the "Enhanced Edition" coming to both the PC and PlayStation 4 on May 22. That means if you pick up the game on that date, you'll get these features that weren't part of the title (or were mere shadows of what they are now) when it was initially released:
