Interestingly, while the title will be removed from Steam, Xbox Marketplace, and PlayStation Store, the game itself will still be playable. Per the announcement on the official website, the servers will remain up "indefinitely after December 31, 2017 so you can continue your adventure throughout the Forgotten Realms."

New Trailer and Details for OVERKILL's The Walking Dead ShowsJason Love

The game will feature four player online co-op throughout the main campaign. Each player will assume the role of one of four playable characters (the first, Aidan, is shown off in the new trailer) and each one will have his/her own unique abilities and progression via a skill tree. In a way, this doesn't sound too dissimilar to the different classes (Mastermind, Enforcer, Ghost, Technician, and Fugitive) from PAYDAY 2.

While there may be some shared ideology between the two titles, there's a definite gulf of difference between Nine Parchments and Magicka. The latter was more focused on having players memorize certain key/button combinations in order to make use of their spells and really leaned hard into the chaos that comes with friendly-fire. Nine Parchments, on the other hand, feels more like a twin-stick action RPG. There are a ton of unlockables in the form of purely cosmetic hats and game-affecting staves, and each of the nine playable characters (all but two have to be unlocked) offers something a little different.

In 2016, a mobile shoot ‘em up called Sky Force Anniversary made its way to consoles. Despite the humble origins, it proved to be a surprisingly robust and addictive game. Now Infinite Dreams has released the sequel Sky Force Reloaded on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam. With two-player local co-op and loads of new content, Reloaded just mi...

Based on what's said in the trailer (see below), it sounds like this trial will provide your co-op buddy of choice the ability to play through the entirety of the campaign with you online; no time limit or "play to certain point." When the title was debuted at this year's E3, Josef talked about how the entire thing has been designed to be a co-op experience that requires a second person to play it, ideally on the couch. If you don't have a local co-op buddy, then the free trial will provide an avenue for you to still enjoy it. One person buys the game, and your buddy can download the co-op trial to play through it with you. That's it.

It’s worth noting that the demo I played had no co-op to it, it was strictly a 10-minute single-player affair. There were two playable characters (the Empire soldier, Markus, or the Waywatcher, Kerillian) and none of the progression or loot systems were available to try or even peruse. Despite this, there were a few things of note that made me more intrigued in this game; specifically, the way the two characters felt different from one another, and the possibilities that the career paths will present for each hero.

There isn't much yet about the game, other than a trailer to set the tone and a few tidbits about co-op gameplay that looks to mix action with strategy.

The new content may be the equivalent of, say, "The Taken King" for the original Destiny, but what's added is good and needed. As Bungie said in their blog post last week, there are those folks that want to be able to hop into the game as they please and find something fun to do. The "Infinite Forest" may play into this by introducing "Heroic Adventures," which are tougher variants of the three Adventures that become available after completing the story. These variants include adding modifiers, like "Prism" that rotates through the different elements (Sol, Arc, Void) and increases the damage of whichever is selected and decreases the damage of the others. While the Adventures end in a section that is either the past, present, or future of Mercury, the path to get there is slightly randomized and constructed from pre-fab building blocks. It's something Bungie calls "intelligent assembly" (instead of the familiar "procedurally generated"). As this is the first week of its release, it's tough to say whether or not these Adventures will be rotated out every week, but it would offer a new/fun endgame activity for folks if they do.

Ubisoft is celebrating today's new content update by offering a free trial period for the game, which effectively runs from Thursday morning to Sunday night.  Players who participate will be able to play the base game as well as all three expansions, meaning those who bought the game at launch but never purchased DLC will also get a chance to jump back in and see what all has changed.  Should they choose to keep playing after the free weekend is over, players can pick the game up at a steep discount - 67% or 70% off, depending on what version of the game they'd like to grab.

If you've already picked up the DLC, either by buying it directly or via the Season Pass, then you can start pre-loading that content now. Fair warning for console users, you may need to free up some space. The DLC requires 88 Gb of space on the PlayStation 4, and 44 Gb of space on the Xbox One. That new planet and new guns need room, man!

In an hour-long developer stream, the team over at Trendy Entertainment laid out the new content that will be arriving sometime this month. The “Power of the Ancients” update includes a new game mode (Onslaught), new ways to customise characters via Defender packs, and a new HUGE map (they emphasize the size a number of times) that can feature twice as many baddies to duke it out with and as the official dev blog says, “Much more!”. The trailer can be found below, as well as the full livestream on Trendy Entertainment's official YouTube channel, here.

The first video highlights some of the non-brawler aspects to the game, like using your brains to discover the mysteries lurking within the world.

Character skill trees are tuned to the strengths of a particular wizard. For instance, if you're playing Carabel the Glacial, your skill trees will focus around ice spells. The Mechanical Owl enjoys lightning/electricity so much of his tree enhances those spells. While the skill trees may boost certain aspects/attributes of a wizard, all of the wizards will have access to a wide-range of spells across the six different element types (fire, ice, lightning, steam, life, and death). Also, much like Magicka, players can combine spells to create new spells/effects.
