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.

The patch notes, which can be read in full over here, are rather vague about the whole thing and only say "also added Platinum difficulty to Multiplayer, featuring a new mixed enemy faction." However, the original tweet that teased this new mode also included a video of a Batarian, one of the alien species that made its debut (in a manner of speaking) in Mass Effect 2. Then, just a few moments ago, the Mass Effect Twitter account announced the new APEX mission (Firebase Magma) that gives players a chance to unlock a new class: the Batarian Scrapper.

The news arrived late last week that the update would be dropping on Tuesday this week. While the number of players has increased from two to four, the activities you can do with your friends are still the same, i.e., Free Roam or Co-Op Operations. Producer Kris Young elaborated in the Ubisoft blog post:

Simon Belmont from the Castlevania series, Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2 (and movie!) fame, and the Vic Viper ship from Gradius are all available to unlock for a mere 10 coins. Those coins are earned by competing against other players in the Multiplayer Battle mode, or by completing worlds in the co-op Story Mode. Full patch notes can be found on the "News" portion of the Super Bomberman R website.

The full patch notes can be found here on publisher Kalypso Media's site. There are the usual gameplay balances and tweaks, but alongside the addition of the local co-op op feature, the other item of import is a new Stash players can use to store items, and a trade feature to allow players to share items with one another. That last one was a particular sticking point Tally brought up in her review of the game. No word on when or if this patch will make its way to the Xbox One and PC versions as well.

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.

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.

At its core, Cave Story can be lumped into the broad category of "Metroidvania." You explore a mysterious floating island, gaining new weapons and abilities as you progress that allow you to access areas you previously couldn't. There's more to it than that, however, and a pretty deep story as well. It's game that I can unequivocally recommend to anyone and the fact that it will finally have some kind of co-op option makes it even easier for me to do so.

There are a total of four scenarios you can tackle with a friend that have been included as part of this "Co-Op Assault" update. While this does sound like it's intended to use as a way of learning the game mechanics so you can then go on to battle against live human opponents, as a free-to-play title, nothing's stopping you and a buddy from just enjoying some occasional tank co-op this way.
