The two new pieces of DLC add new areas to explore and conquer. In "Fractured Worlds," players will journey to "a dimension formed from the fragments of broken realms." New levels and an endless dungeon will await you. Then, taking a slightly different turn, you can bang you head to "Ace of Spades" while enjoying the other DLC, "Motörhead: Through the Ages." The premise for this is rather outrageous, so I'm just going to let the devs do the talking here:

Last night the Co-Opticrew took to the skies in a steam powered airship and battled pirates, miners, and other baddies in an early look at the Beta version of Guns of Icarus: Alliance. And while my piloting skills came into question at first, it wasn't long before the crew started to cooperate and become a well oiled (steam powered) flying machine.

The last we heard from Nerdook and Vertical Drop Heroes HD, the one-man development team had just wrapped up converting the game from a browser-based Flash game to a full-fledged PC title. Since then, he's been busy working on bringing the action RPG game to the current gen consoles, a venue that feels pretty appropriate for it as it's a fun/quick pick-up-and-play co-op title. Just as on the PC, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game will support two player couch co-op.

The good news is that it sounds like they're letting the title be really open as far as playing with friends goes. If your friend is further along in the story missions than you, he/she can join you to help you complete those missions, or you can always jump ahead in the story and help them out. Of course, with all that hopping back and forth, you may be worried about progression, no worries there. "Whatever progression you make with your friends will be saved in your own progression." Finally, there's no "tether" that forces you and your buddies to stay within the same area, though they do recommend staying somewhat close together so you can revive each other should the worst occur.

The puzzle platformer that will "test relationships," SMG Studios' Death Squared, now has an official release date. The title will arrive on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 14. While the title only supports couch co-op natively, if you pick up the game for the PlayStation 4, you'll be able to play with friends...

The Velvet Shell update also brings with it a slew of changes/fixes to the game, like an improved menu/navigation interface, a "Play" button that will just drop you right back into the last mode you played, and a dynamic challenge display that will pop up and let you know how you're progressing towards completing said challenges. The full patch notes can be found over on the main "Operation Velvet Shell" page on the Rainbow 6 Siege website.

Our regular Monday night crew played a bit of the game last year when it first hit Steam Early Access and enjoyed some of the ideas/features, like trying to make a house and a garden while fighting off orcs. The limitation on players being able to go off to other worlds separate from their companions was a letdown, but it sounds like developer Keen Games have plans to address that with a future update. They also revealed that they plan on implementing splitscreen functionality to the game, though it's not clear how many players that will support and if it will also support combo co-op.
