Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for August 2023

The flood gates have been opened!

Let's face it: The big thing in August was Baldur's Gate III. There is no way to sugarcoat it. This month saw 30XX finally leaving Early Access on Steam, the surprise releases of the QUAKE II-Remaster and Age of Empires IV for Xbox, the addition of local co-op to the founder of a new genre (Vampire Survivors) and even the long-awaited (?) return of a much beloved (citation neededGerman video game icon (TM). But none could overshadow the (fully earned) success of Larian's juggernaut CRPG. Considering how stacked this month was, not just in terms of co-op titles, that's quite a feat.

Of course, success is short lived in the world of videogames. One week you are on top of the world, the next no one cares about you anymore. And the signs are already on the horizon for Baldur's Gate III. Bethesda's upcoming Starfield may not have co-op (yet - make your bets on how long it takes the modding community to fix that), but we all know that half the globe (slight exaggeration) will jump into the vast Field of a Star in September, ourselves included... with one exception: our Database Master. He has to continue toiling away in the Database Mines to keep our database fresh and up to snuff, after all. Especially now, since it's that time of the year again, with more releases coming out each minute than anyone can feasibly play in a lifetime. For August, this meant the addition of another 149 entries to our ever-growing Behemoth and the crossing of the 13,000 total entries milestone.

So as always, take a look below at what you might've missed and get back to gamin' with your family and friends!
