The Trine developer first announced their new game last August, showing off a lot of magic action that was fairly similar to another co-op title involving wizards and magic. There hasn't been much mention or updates from the studio since then. In fact, this is the first piece of news that we've heard at all after the initial announcement. So while there isn't much else to go on, or even a release date, at least we get to enjoy some nice footage of the game in action.

Xbox One Closed Beta for Marvel Heroes Omega Starts Next MonthJason Love

On Tuesday, the PlayStation 4 version of Marvel Heroes Omega officially kicked over from closed beta to open beta. It's free to download and play from the PSN store right now, along with a free character (Daredevil). Next month, Xbox One players will be able to get in on the action, too. The closed beta for Marvel Heroes O...

I've poked my head into the Early Access version of the game every so often to check out what's changed since the last update/patch, and things are still looking really good. I especially like the two new magic classes, Polymorph and Summoning, that were added in March. If you're a fan of cRPGs and/or tabletop gaming at all, I think Divinity: Original Sin 2 is going to scratch that particular itch even better than its predecessor.

The Legendary Edition of the game, which will be available for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, will include the base game, the Horizons Season Pass, and 1,000 Frontier points, the premium in-game currency that can be spent on cosmetic items. GameStop currently has this listed for $49.99, and the "Digital Deluxe" version of the game (which has all the same content, only it's digital) will likely run the same amount based on the listing over in the GB PSN store.

The title is now live via Steam Early Access, but we were able to get a sneak peek at it yesterday evening during our regular Monday night co-op streams. None of us were overly familiar with it, so we do some bumbling about but eventually start figuring things out. The entire campaign can be played cooperatively with up to four friends online and every level of the campaign starts you off with nothing more than a knife. You'll pick up new weapons by either taking them from defeated enemies, or by finding them. Each level you'll also acquire new abilities that can be leveled by acquiring ability points, which can be acquired by completing certain mission objectives or by finding ability point pick-ups scattered around the level. Those abilities reset at the start of the next level, so you'll always be scrounging for weapons and ability points, which adds an interesting survival feeling/twist.

When we looked at Rogue Stomers last year, we saw a title that had a lot of promise if the developers decided to continue supporting it. While it's been some time since we checked in on things, that's exactly what Black Forest Games has been doing in the past year. After the console version was out the door back in October, much of the development team's efforts seem to have gone into fixing some of the bigger sticking points. One of those was how experience was earned when playing locally; specifically, players other than "player one" couldn't earn experience at all.

In Destiny, if you wanted to do the Nightfall Strikes or the Raids, and didn't have a dedicated group of friends you could call upon, then you were out of luck. Bungie has come up with a way to try and make all of that content accessible to everyone with the inclusion of in-game Clans and a feature called "Guided Games," which will match up solo players with friendly clans to complete those very activities. The example given during the event was that if you want to check out the new Raid, but don't have a group of six friends, then you could hop into a Guided Game with a group of folks from a clan that's willing to help players through. Who knows, maybe you'll all hit it off and you'll find some new friends with whom to play. I had some pretty positive experiences using things like DestinyLFG and even the forums to play through that stuff in Destiny, so this is a solution for which I'm cautiously optimistic.

Warner Bros and TT Games announced the new LEGO title earlier this week and even have a little teaser/trailer that lets you know that the real video to tease the game will be revealed at a later point in time (next Tuesday, to be exact). This time around, you'll be facing off against Kang the Conqueror as he attempts to muck about with both time and space. There's a new four player multiplayer/competitive battle mode that's being added and an open hub world area known as "Chronopolis." It's unclear if that four player capability will transfer over into the co-op side of things for the campaign, but we'll certainly keep an eye on it.

The last time we saw Piece of Cake's stealth action game was at this year's PAX East when Tally got hands-on with it for a bit. Since then, the developer kicked off a closed beta that was originally slated to end this week before the Early Access period on Steam began. However, in a blog post yesterday, the developer stated that they needed a little more time to better stabilize the online portion of the game, and they're now making it an open beta, which you can sign-up for to join.

In the main "Free-For-All" mode, players must compete against one another to get the most points possible by linking up matching colored blocks to pull off big combos. Before you get those points, though, you have to wait a few seconds before it locks in. During that time, other players can steal away your combo by linking up new block with it.

This new DLC for Black Ops 3, titled "Zombies Chronicles," is the fifth one for the title and has been the subject of much rumor and speculation over the past few weeks. What the bundle entails is a total of eight remastered maps from the zombie mode in Treyarch's past few Call of Duty games. Specifically, the DLC will include:

The central conceit of the game is that you (and up to three of your local co-op buddies) take control over one of four Urican, astral demons that are used to being the "top of the food pyramid." After three mysterious entities arrive and change the world, the demons must fight for survival and recover their precious food source: the crystals. So you'll take 'em all down by utilizing some impressive weaponry, like missile launchers, and whatever power-ups you can nab, like speed boosts and something called "Bullet Time."

Rebellion is bringing their blue soldier back in Rogue Trooper Redux sometime "soon," though there isn't too much to go on at this point other than the fact that it's a remastered version of the original. If you missed out on that 2006 title, then enjoy this new video that lets you know just who (or, rather, what) is Rog...
