Co-Op Release Alert for the Week of 3.1.2015

Zombies, aliens, and more zombies.

We have a few co-op games coming out this week. There's an indie twin-stick shooter, an indie rogue-like, an installment of one of Capcom's fading franchises, and another zombie shooting game.

Okay, maybe they don't sound that interesting, but it's cold outside. What else are you going to do? 


Helldivers (PS3,PS4,VITA) The space-based follow-up to Arrowhead's Magicka finally arrives on all three Sony systems. Twin-stick soldiers from Super Earth (not making that up) are spreading democracy to alien worlds with extreme prejudice and unforgiving friendly fire.  [4 player local co-op, 4 player online co-op, 4 player combo co-op]

Tallowmere (PC) According to the Steam page, it's a procedurally-generated, roguelike, 2D platformer, indie game. I bet there's loot, too.  [4 player local co-op]

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Episode 2 (PS4,360,XBO,PS3) The second chapter in RE: Rev 2 will be available via digital download today. If you're not into the whole episodic thing, the whole package can be purchased from retailers at a later date.  [2 player local co-op]


Zombie Army Trilogy (PC,PS4,XBO) Rebellion has upgraded their two previous undead WW2 shooters and packaged them with an all new campaign. Nazi zombies: truly the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups of video game bad guys. [4 player online co-op]

Looks like that's about it as far as co-op games are concerned. If we missed something, let us know in the comments section. I've been known to make mistakes.
