While the September release is for consoles, PC Guardians-to-be will finally be able to take up arms on October 24th. This marks a different focus for Bungie, who had left PC players without any way to play the original Destiny. If you're so inclined, there are a number of editions you can buy as well, ranging from the Standard $59.99 version all the way up to the $249.99 Collector's Edition. Pre-ordering the game will also get you into the early access beta that's set to take place the weekend of July 18 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and sometime in August for PC.

Physical Version Of The Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth+ Coming To PS4Enoch Starnes

For the (somehow) uninitiated, TBoI and its many offspring are roguelikes centered around a small, incredibly sad child and his quest to do... well, a number of things that I won't spoil for you.  To accomplish said quest, though, the player must work their way through a series of randomly generated levels and survive each segment using the game's twin-stick shooter combat.

Locke and Nick checked Pit People out a few months back and came away impressed by what they saw then. Since that time, there's been an update that added daily co-op tasks, and now this one that adds even more for you and a buddy to do. While the title still doesn't have a firm release date, updates like this one push the title ever closer. The full patch notes can be found here.

Just one more week until you can enjoy Bone Spears, Blood Golems, and all the skeletons you can muster, provided you own the Reaper of Souls expansion on the PC or Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One (sorry PS3 and 360). This new add-on content finally has a price, too: $14.99. However, it's not just the Necromancer class you'll get with that, you also get the following:

The game made its debut last night during Sony's E3 press conference. In the announcement trailer below, you can see a few new features that are making their way to the newest entry, like using the environment and other monsters to help you take down your prey. Additionally, while it's sort of hinted at in the footage where the monster pursues the hunter, there won't be hard break points between different map areas so both monster and hunter can move freely back and forth without any loading screens in between.

The expansion, titled "Awakening the Nightmare," will shift the campaign over to Atriox and his Banished forces as they fight off everybody's favorite Halo enemy: the Flood. From an overall story perspective, these events take place a few months after the conclusion of the main campaign as the Banished are now desperate to take control of the Ark. I get that desperate times call for desperate measures, but unleashing some zombie plants doesn't seem all that smart.

Armed with a 6 teraflop GPU that enables 4K gaming at 60FPS with ease, the Xbox One X will play all of your Xbox One games. Certain games will support a higher 4K native resolution along with HDR color (HDR10 to be exact) if your TV allows. What does this mean? Crisper images with punchier colors combined with silky smooth frame rates. Games that support these features will have an "Enhanced for Xbox One X" logo on the box. You can see the list of supported games on the Xbox site. As of now, Co-Optimus won't be tracking this feature in our database, just like we don't track the PS4 Pro enhancements.

While the Co-Optimus crew wasn't able to make it to E3 this year to check out all the new and exciting games for ourselves, there are plenty of folks from other outlets that are sharing their impressions from the little bits they're allowed to play. In the case of A Way Out, it sounds like most folks are presented with a short segment in which the two main characters (Leo and Vincent) must rob a gas station. The way they go about this, i.e., who they talk to in the gas station, what kind of distraction they make, do they go all out or try to be more subtle, is unique to each one for each co-op pair gets to talk and decide for themselves how they want to do it, and then make adjustments on the fly when that goes wrong. Mike Williams from USGamer, James Davenport and Samuel Roberts from PC Gamer, and Nick Robinson from Polygon all got their hands on it and, in their own way, all described something that I haven't seen much of in co-op games of late: a story that's defined by the players.

Granted, huddling around a computer screen isn't exactly the ideal way to couch co-op something, but as senior programmer Stephen Glindmeyer points out, our modern 1080p screens are way better than those CRT TVs of the past. "When you get a bunch of friends together, it’s nice to be able to play a modern game without having to buy 4 copies and 4 gaming PC’s.  With modern 1080p monitors, each quadrant of a 4 player splitscreen actually has 7x as many pixels as the entire screen in Mario Kart 64 or Goldeneye!"

The Ultimate Edition of NPLUSPLUS will feature all of the updates that have found their way to the PC version since the original 2015 launch. Unfortunately, the updates are not available on the PlayStation 4 yet, but are set to come soon. In an email to Eurogamer, Metanet’s Mare Shepard said “The Xbox One version is going to launch with all the new Ultimate stuff…” going on to elaborate, she said that this means “All the new levels, headbands, secrets and Hardcore game mode."

While there are some similarities in the overall action RPG/loot shooter idea that one could draw between Anthem and Bungie's Destiny, the few minutes of gameplay that was shown also had some Mass Effect vibes to it in the way the combat plays out and the overall player mobility (players have jet packs and can boost run). Players will don exosuits - called Javelins - that come in a few different class types, each of which can be customized with abilities and gear of varying degrees of rarity. The "balanced" Ranger and "heavy-hitter" Colossus are specifically mentioned and shown off in the footage, but we also catch a glimpse of another exosuit that seems to be a little more "magical" (for lack of a better descriptor) towards the end. In combat, players appear to have three abilities that are mapped to the bumper buttons in addition to their guns.

From the reveal video and description it sounds like a co-op version of Uncharted or Tombraider, where you'll be hunting treasure in ancient ruins from civilizations long gone. Players will have to survive traps, solve puzzles, and of course shoot creepy creatures.
