Aside from the announcement of its release this and the trailer, there are not a lot of co-details that have been revealed at this time. Sure, there are new areas to build your farm and you can raise horses, but how many of my friends can I rope into being my volunteer workforce? For now, we're assuming the game will support the same number of players as Farming Simulator 17 (i.e., up to 16 on the PC, and up to 8 on PS4 and Xbox One).

New Content On The Way For X-Morph: DefenseJason Love

The mini-campaign that you'll get with the "European Assault" paid DLC is described as taking place "parallel to the main story, and will see players wreak havoc across Finland and Holland before concluding in an epic, destruction-fuelled showdown at the Eiffel Tower in France." This DLC will be available first on the PC starting on March 26, and will then be made available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime after that.

This game is like an escape room on steroids. Players journey through a castle, solving puzzles along the way. The catch is that you and your co-op partner are in separate rooms and have to communicate what they see and they can interact with in order to solve the puzzles. Sometimes, speed is of the essence as there are also some devious traps that will kill one or both of the players. Other times, a mysterious shadow suddenly appears and freaks you right out.

One thing to note in all this is that the player count seems to have dropped from 8 to 4. On the game's website, there's this little note about halfway down:

The game was first announced last April and was shown off with the player character running around with an A.I. companion. Given the clear Dark Souls influence, which was also stated in the title's marketing materials, it seemed likely that co-op would be coming at some point, but there have been other Dark Souls-type games without any form of co-op, so it was anybody's guess. Based on what's been said thus far, it appears co-op will be limited to just one other person that you'll be able to team up with, and it's not entirely clear how you do that. The announcement stated that the game will "gives players the chance to answer requests for help from other[s]" in order to clear out difficult areas/bosses, and that the A.I. companion would remain with you. We'll likely learn more over the next several months leading up to the game's release.

The beta will include the same content as the previous one (i.e., three co-op missions, two different maps, daily missions) and will reward everyone who participates with some in-game goodies should they pick up the full game. If you still have the beta installed on your PS4 or Xbox One, then you'll just have to download a patch and you'll be good to go. Hopefully, everything will go smoothly with the beta's launch this time around. Details about the beta can be found over at the official website.

The title certainly draws inspiration from the Left 4 Dead games, but it adds to it different classes to play and character progression. We had a pretty good time when we played during one of the alpha sessions, and are looking forward to getting our hands on it some more.

We got hands on with an early demo (single-player only, unfortunately) of the title last year, and the sequel definitely shows some promise. The ability to customize and specialize your hero should open up new gameplay possibilities when playing with friends, and the addition of the Chaos faction means you'll have to prioritize foes in the midst of combat. Hopefully the improved loot system will make getting new gear less of a chore.

The game has definitely made some strides over the past few years and been kept alive by the competitive gaming scene, but if you're more cooperatively minded, then you can enjoy the game's "Terrorist Hunt" mode. All of that will be available for free starting today on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, though it's worth noting that many of the operators and guns have to be acquired with in-game currency that's earned from playing. The free weekend will end on Tuesday, February 20, but all your progress will carry over into the full game if you decide to pick it up. More information about the free weekend can be found on the official website.

As this is a local co-op only title, Locke handled the actual playing while I provided the running commentary and thoughts on the game. Most of what's shown off in the recap video is from the first few levels, but I think you'll be able to get a pretty good idea of what the action and gameplay are like. The one aspect that we only begin to touch upon, and I wish we had more time to get into, is the way the tower defense sections play out and how they become more and more puzzle-like as you progress. Later levels introduce new playable characters that have different kinds of attacks, new structures/special objects they can construct, and new fusions that can be made by combining two or more characters' constructs. There's a lot going on during those defense phases and playing single-player vs playing cooperatively definitely changes things up.

The title supports two player local co-op or two player online co-op, with one player taking on the role of the Agent while the other is the Hacker. The goal is to infiltrate corporations and steal valuable intel that could bring them down. The hook here is that the Agent moves about and interacts with the physical world, while the Hacker can only influence things that are connected to the network. Thus, each player has a specific role to play and cooperation is definitely required. Locke and I played some of the title while it was still in beta last May and enjoyed our time with it overall!

Starting with version 5.2, a new, limited-time event will be running for players who, like you and I, enjoy a bit of cooperative gaming. It's called "Da Ji and the Legend of the Foxes", and it sports both a unique cel-shaded art style and a brand new horde mode.  Check out the trailer below:
