Tom Phillips at Eurogamer published an article yesterday that brought all of this to our attention. While the news hasn't been officially confirmed by Warner Bros, the game's publisher, it appears some information was shared with Eurogamer from within TT Games, the developer behind LEGO Dimensions and pretty much all LEGO games. In an email to the entire studio, Dave Dootson (TT Games' Studio Manager) talked about the title in such a way that seems to acknowledge the project is coming to a close.

Halo Wars 2 Will Receive Cross-Platform Update Later This MonthJason Love

The title was originally released as part of the "Xbox Play Anywhere" program, which meant that if you picked it up for the Xbox One or Windows 10, you automatically could play it on the other platform at no additional charge. While many of these titles also supported cross-platform play, curiously, Halo Wars 2 did not. That oversight will be corrected once the new update arrives sometime before the end of October (no specific date was given).

Based on some of the new info that Fatshark is putting out about the game, Vermintide 2 certainly sounds like it's shaping up to be a better game than the original... and that was already a pretty good four player co-op title. The fact more defined character progression - with the ability to choose a (for now) vaguely defined "career path" that affects your abilities and loadouts in addition to the new talent tree - is a part of this sequel is enough to make me interested. On top of that, they're also tweaking the loot system to provide more relevant loot for your character.

We're a couple weeks away from Spintires: MudRunner getting unleashed upon the world, and Focus Home and Saber Interactive want to ensure everyone knows there's more to do than just hitting your friend's vehicle with a log. The latest trailer for the revamped version of the curious mud/terrain deformation simulator shows ...

The original Destiny launched in 2014 across Xbox One, 360, PS4 and PS3. It was reviewed by our own Nick, Jason and Mike who gave it a 4 out of 5 for both the overall game and co-op. They praised its use as a foundation to be improved upon with Nick saying “You need to examine the potential a game has to see if it's worth your almighty dollar. Destiny is ripe with potential and Bungie has rarely not delivered. The first set of content and changes are already live. But based on what's there now, it might be tough to hold gamers' attentions long enough until it reaches that state.”

In case you're unfamiliar with the Access programs, they're subscription-based services available on both Xbox One in the form of EA Access and PC in the form of Origin Access.  You plop down a few bucks a month (or a discounted amount for a year), and have access to a number of titles in EA's library.

One of the things I've always admired about Warframe is its movement system. Sliding into a group of foes while wielding a katana and doing a sick spin that slices them into meaty bits ALWAYS. FEELS. GOOD! It's only gotten better with time, too, as Digital Extremes has tweaked the graphics, made the movement system even more fluid, and made changes to how melee combat works. One of the bigger improvements to the game has been a revamp of the whole first couple hours and the tutorial. You are eased into systems much easier than before and certain things, like how to use mods, new weapons, Warframes, and other features, are introduced through the course of all this in a gradual fashion that's not overwhelming. Honestly, if you're looking for a fun loot-grind co-op game, Warframe is in a pretty good spot right now.

Currently, you and up to three other folks can form a group called a "Wing" and head out on an adventure. If all players have the same mission, then they can all choose it from their log and complete it jointly and get individual rewards (they cannot, though, share a missions with other members of their Wing). Sometime in Q1 of next year, Frontier Development will implement new "Wing Missions," which are specific co-op goals/objectives for you to complete with friends. This news came in a 30-minute presentation during the recent "Frontier Expo," the video of which you can find below.

The free weekend is in celebration of the latest title update that added a new 4v4 PvP mode. While the reason for this weekend gaming boon may not be cooperative, we'll always take advantage of any reason to enjoy some good co-op gaming. Best of all, if you and your co-op crew are enjoying the title, then you can pick it up for 50% off until Monday, October 16 via Steam, or the following Monday (October 23) if you buy it off Uplay, the PSN store, and Microsoft Store (if you are an Xbox Live Gold member).

While a lot of those guns and goodies appear to be focused around the multiplayer part of the game, there is one nice thing for all of us co-op enthusiasts. We've talked before about how there are special bosses you can face if you complete certain (difficult) objectives throughout the course of the mode. Well during this Halloween event, you can face off against these terrible foes without having to jump through all of those hoops thanks to the Boss Battle Mode. Here's how it works:

This feels like Digital Extremes' first steps into transitioning Warframe into more of a shooter/MMO hybrid as the update brings it with some of those features most commonly associated with titles in the MMO genre (i.e., quest-givers, a social hub, non-combat activities like fishing). It's an ambitious step, as so much of the game is centered around taking on discreet missions with friends and, more-or-less, grinding away at those. With the addition of an open area where players can accept different quests, experience a full day/night cycle, interact with vendors and NPCs, and take on bigger/tougher foes (the Eidolons), there's more to see and do, which is enticing to long-time fans and newcomers alike.
