Perhaps the biggest change to the game is the revamped character/player progression system. All level caps have been removed and each time you level a hero, now, you also gain a player level. Each time you gain a player level, you get a loot chest (sound familiar?) Those chests can contain a variety of cosmetic items, such as hero skins, emotes, sprays, and announcer packs, and you can use the in-game currency earned by playing (gold) to re-roll the contents if you didn't get that sweet Kerrigan skin you wanted. If you do get a duplicate item, it will automatically be converted into the new currency type, Shards. Shards are used exclusively for buying cosmetic items.

Cooperative Zombie Campaign Mode Announced for Call of Duty: WWIIJason Love

Details are sparse and not forthcoming with regards to that co-op mode. Apparently, all we get for now is the gruesome teaser image below. While the "Zombies" mode in the modern Call of Duty titles has usually been pretty solid from a co-op perspective, I was really hoping that Sledgehammer would maybe try something new. Like, I dunno, a full co-op campaign that's not a separate thing?

After recovering the "Deathstorm" package, Karl now travels to the town of Niroli to uncover what, exactly, the Nazis had planned for the weapon. To do this, he'll have to sneak into the medieval town and rescue an important Italian scientist and his wife. Just as with part one, this new story mission can be played cooperatively online with a friend.

The sequel to the hit prison life/escape simulator, The Escapists 2, is still tunneling its way to sweet freedom/release this year. In the latest trailer, publisher Team17 is showing off a new prison from which you and your friends can attempt to bust out. As if the name alone (Rattlesnake Springs) didn't tip you off, this new "big ho...

It doesn't sound like there will be any modifications or alterations made for the PC version. You'll still get the enhanced graphics, the two new characters, new stages, and new bosses that were in the PlayStation 4 version. The four player local co-op will also be kept, so hopefully you and your buddies enjoy getting really close.

I bought into the closed beta so I could check it out over the weekend. Coming from the PC version, it's rather interesting to see what's different. The game as a whole feels more streamlined, which I suppose is to be expected as Gaz is focusing on the "core" elements of the title for now. I've yet to level a character to 60 to see what the end game content is like, but with only one patrol zone and no weekly in-game events yet, I don't expect there to be very much for now. There are a lot of little changes from the PC to console, such as changing up hero synergies and the bonuses certain gear grants you, but none of that is necessarily a bad thing. In fact, some changes, such as the in-game currencies being reduced to just three (one for buying heroes, one for buying items from vendors, and one that only becomes available at 60 for buying special items), means that the title is easier to approach for newcomers.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, a remastered version of the 2009 RTS title, was initially put out there as an "Early Access" exclusive for anyone who also bought the recent sequel. The implication there was that it eventually would be available to buy on its own, and that day has finally arrived. Along with the updated graphics,&nbs...

The DLC, titled "Narco Road," weirdly doesn't continue with your character's progress from the main game. Instead, you're given a new character that's set to level 20 and set loose to tackle the 15 new missions. The reason for this kind of reset appears due to the shift in your employer. Rather than being part of an elite military strike team, you're now a mercenary working for the Santa Blanca cartel. You'll have to impress some smuggling gangs to get them on your side (apparently by doing sick stunts in cars/bikes/planes), while also battling a rival cartel.

You can watch our run through the mode below, which takes around 15 minutes to complete each time. The default difficulty is fairly easy and the hard difficulty in the all heroes mode, becomes frustrating quite quickly.

Ok, so joking aside, this is some pretty creative design. The latest frame to join the space ninja ranks lets you create your own music that then gets played in-game when you use Octavia's abilities. The "Mandachord" allows you to build a song using percussion, bass, and melody tracks. Those tracks then provide the beats to Octavia's abilities, Mallet, Resonator, and Metronome. I can't speak to how well all that works out in the game itself, but the idea of it is really cool.

If you're familiar with some of Grasshopper's (and Suda 51's) past games, then you know they have some interesting takes on familiar video game formulas while also weaving a different kind of story. Sine Mora is no exception to that as the main narrative revolves around two different tales occurring at two different points in time, but they're linked in a rather interesting way. From a gameplay perspective, rather than the player's ship having a health bar or dying in one hit, each time you take fire from an enemy, you lose time. Like I said, there's a lot of interesting stuff going on here. The good news is that you can team up with a buddy locally to play through the entire story.

First off, apologies on the audio of the video. It seems something got mixed up somewhere and only my audio came through in the end, so you won't be able to hear Matt or Locke's dulcet tones.
