Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for April 2022


It's finally time to unpack that boomstick and oil up the chainsaw again! On May 13th, the aptly named Evil Dead: The Game will finally hit store shelves. The first new Evil Dead release since 2005s Evil Dead: Regeneration (we don't count those lackluster mobile titles in between). We really can't wait to take on the Kandarian Demon with our friends. We may even stop playing Elden Ring for it.

But we're jumping ahead. This is after all the round-up for April not May - no matter how excited we are for the Return of Bruce Campbell - it's just not the time, yet. Instead, let's focus on a few of the highlights of last month: the long wait for the release of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga seems to have been worth it, resulting in one of the best LEGO games in years. The surprisingly successful Outbreak franchise, on the other hand, saw the release of its fifth title, Outbreak: Contagious Memories. If you're looking to scare your pants off, that's one new option to choose from. RPG-fans and Dungeon Masters, on the other hand ,were treated to both the release of Demeo: PC Edition (formerly a VR-only title) and a patch for Solasta: Crown of the Magister adding a very robust co-op mode to the game. Oh, and there was that remake of a house full of zombies you have to shoot. You may have heard of this very influential arcade title from 1997 and it's unironic name: The House of the Dead.

All in all, it was a heck of a month in terms of co-op releases, and there's no indication that the goods will stop to pile up in the coming weeks. So take a look below at what you may have missed, call your friends, and get your game on!
