While there is undoubtedly a core player-vs-player component to the game, teaming up with four friends to take on an A.I. controlled team is fully supported. However, it's worth noting that those options are somewhat limited at this time. Originally, there were plans to allow up to four players to team up locally, online, via LAN, or some combination thereof (combo co-op). Things happen, understandably, during development and now it looks like the co-op is a bit more limited. You can play any of the available modes (Season, Playoffs, or Arcade [Play Now]) with up to four players locally with couch co-op (i.e., all players on the same PC looking at the same screen) using four game controllers. You can also play online with one other person.

Pacific DLC Arrives Next Week for Running with RiflesJason Love

Choose to play as either the U.S. Marine Corps or the Imperial Japanese Army as you battle across seven different islands that were key to the Pacific campaign during World War II. When you're done playing through the campaign with your friends, you can hop into any one of the new maps to enjoy some old fashioned "comp stomping." The DLC also adds new vehicles, like the Stuart light tank, as well as new weapons, such as Flamethrowers and katanas.

Based on some of the new info that Fatshark is putting out about the game, Vermintide 2 certainly sounds like it's shaping up to be a better game than the original... and that was already a pretty good four player co-op title. The fact more defined character progression - with the ability to choose a (for now) vaguely defined "career path" that affects your abilities and loadouts in addition to the new talent tree - is a part of this sequel is enough to make me interested. On top of that, they're also tweaking the loot system to provide more relevant loot for your character.

We're a couple weeks away from Spintires: MudRunner getting unleashed upon the world, and Focus Home and Saber Interactive want to ensure everyone knows there's more to do than just hitting your friend's vehicle with a log. The latest trailer for the revamped version of the curious mud/terrain deformation simulator shows ...

Rebellion's Rogue Trooper Redux, the remastered version of their 2006 release, is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Need a refresher on what this game is all about? The new launch trailer should cover you there. Rogue Trooper Redux supports four player online co-op in two separate co-op modes: S...

One of the things I've always admired about Warframe is its movement system. Sliding into a group of foes while wielding a katana and doing a sick spin that slices them into meaty bits ALWAYS. FEELS. GOOD! It's only gotten better with time, too, as Digital Extremes has tweaked the graphics, made the movement system even more fluid, and made changes to how melee combat works. One of the bigger improvements to the game has been a revamp of the whole first couple hours and the tutorial. You are eased into systems much easier than before and certain things, like how to use mods, new weapons, Warframes, and other features, are introduced through the course of all this in a gradual fashion that's not overwhelming. Honestly, if you're looking for a fun loot-grind co-op game, Warframe is in a pretty good spot right now.

Currently, you and up to three other folks can form a group called a "Wing" and head out on an adventure. If all players have the same mission, then they can all choose it from their log and complete it jointly and get individual rewards (they cannot, though, share a missions with other members of their Wing). Sometime in Q1 of next year, Frontier Development will implement new "Wing Missions," which are specific co-op goals/objectives for you to complete with friends. This news came in a 30-minute presentation during the recent "Frontier Expo," the video of which you can find below.

Super Mario Odyssey arrives later this month, and many of us are looking forward to the new adventures of the intrepid plumber (retired?!). In anticipation of its release, Nintendo has released a new video that you should see airing on a TV near you that features a mix of CG Mario dancing with some live-action folks, a rousing song performed b...

While a lot of those guns and goodies appear to be focused around the multiplayer part of the game, there is one nice thing for all of us co-op enthusiasts. We've talked before about how there are special bosses you can face if you complete certain (difficult) objectives throughout the course of the mode. Well during this Halloween event, you can face off against these terrible foes without having to jump through all of those hoops thanks to the Boss Battle Mode. Here's how it works:

This feels like Digital Extremes' first steps into transitioning Warframe into more of a shooter/MMO hybrid as the update brings it with some of those features most commonly associated with titles in the MMO genre (i.e., quest-givers, a social hub, non-combat activities like fishing). It's an ambitious step, as so much of the game is centered around taking on discreet missions with friends and, more-or-less, grinding away at those. With the addition of an open area where players can accept different quests, experience a full day/night cycle, interact with vendors and NPCs, and take on bigger/tougher foes (the Eidolons), there's more to see and do, which is enticing to long-time fans and newcomers alike.
