The game has been in development since 2014 and has gone through a number of changes (including an update to the visuals/graphics). The trailer below is essentially a recreation of their original Kickstarter trailer with the updated visuals, and if you're a fan of retro aesthetic, you'll definitely want to check it out. As for the action itself, the dev team has broken it down into three core ideas: Explore, Build, Defend. You and your co-op buddy will be doing a lot of platforming and puzzle solving to reach the base at the end of each level, at which point you'll construct defenses and hold out against waves of enemies. You'll eventually recruit more characters into your part, which will allow you to combine and upgrade buildings and character abilities via the "Fusion System."

Next Rainbow 6 Siege DLC is Around the CornerJason Love

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!)

If you're never heard of the title before and wondering "just what is this thing," it's ok, you're not alone. Without a doubt, the big appeal to Spintires was the mud physics that could trap your vehicle in a mire of Siberian swamp. Sure, you ostensibly had the task of going around picking up lumber and delivering to various places around the map, but that's not why people played itSpintires: MudRunner is more of the same, but with a few new features, like an open-world/sandbox map, a new Challenge mode, new vehicles, and improved graphics.

We've known that Absolver would support three players online in some kind of PvE area for a little while, and the devs have gone into a little more detail about how that happens. There's a little bit of a Journey element to this, where you'll randomly come across other players as you explore the ruined world of the Aslan Empire. Per Pierre Tarno, Creative Director at Sloclap:

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 classic platforming Sonic is back today with the release of Sonic Mania on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One (PC is delayed until the 29th). To celebrate the hedgehog's return, which thus far has been met with fair praise, check out the game's opening animation and maybe feel a little bit of nostalgia/excitement...

What exactly is Aces of Seafood? It's a game where you lead (and breed) a school of sea creatures. Everything is fair game - from fish to lobsters, even hermit crabs and submarines. Wait, what? Oh yeah - you breed submarines.

In order to claim these units, you'll have to log into Total War Access and activating this "Free-LC" from the dashboard. Once that's done, you should see something for the units that you can click on that will allow you to activate/download them. There's an FAQ and a listing of all 30 Regiments that are being added (six per the five races) over at the Total War blog.

The streets of London are overrun with the living dead and its up to four survivors - Teller, Mick ‘The Brick’, Rei, and Eddie - to take out as many of them as possible. While the action is very side-scrolling brawler focused, nDreams has described the combat as "free-form" so you can chain moves together. The other big feature here is that the title supports VR players for both the PC (Rift and Vive) and PlayStation 4 versions (PSVR), as well as combo co-op. So, if you and your buddy are playing on the couch together, you could join another friend who's using the PSVR. The player wearing the VR headset is able to get a unique view of the action and can move the camera around to get a better look at what's ahead or crawling up behind you.
