The last Stronghold game we checked out was Stronghold: Crusader 2, which featured online co-op play for two players. It looks like that mode is returning with Stronghold: Warlords, though with a few new twists above and beyond the Asian setting.
We're back for another week of Gloomhaven on PC. The four player co-op strategy game captured our attention last week and the crew couldn't wait to get more. Perhaps the best thing about it is just how well a session fits into an hour or so of play making it bite sized, but still providing solid progress for players.
The other night an extra heavy weight Co-Opticrew dove into the early access version of Gloomhaven, a tactical RPG based on the board game of the same name. In it we check out some four player co-op in the game's Guildmaster mode all while learning the ropes from Locke, who clearly has lived a few lives in these dungeons.
Outriders, the three player co-op game from studio People May Fly, was recently delayed a few months for some added polish. That hasn't stopped the steady stream of content though to keep fans appetite while they wait. A demo will be available on the game's original release date with the ability to carry over progress to the full game. Now a new video is showcasing all the bells and whistles of the PC version.
If you wanted to see what Call of Duty offers for co-op players, now is a good time to dive into the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's zombies mode, which is free from January 14th through the 21st.
Thanks to a recent sale, the 2018 title Shadow of the Tomb Raider and its entire catalog of DLC could be had for around $10. So I jumped at the chance to check out the game, having mostly skipped its predecessor, Rise of the Tomb Raider. One thing the latest title added was the ability to play through tombs with a friend in co-op fashion.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is going to receive a major update this week on January 14th, as the "mid-season update" goes live with the game across all platforms. While most of the changes are focused on the game's PvP modes with new maps, weapons, and playlists there is some good stuff for co-op fans.
We missed updating folks back in November when A Total War Saga: TROY got a major update that included the ability to play the game's campaign in two player co-op on top of co-op skirmishes. That feature, when launched, was considered beta and not completely finished. As to be expected folks encountered numerous issues.
Outriders, the three player co-op shooter/RPG from studio People Can Fly has been delayed until April 1st, a reported by the game's official twitter account. All is not lost though as instead on the original release date we will get a full demo.
For our first stream of 2021, we thought we'd take a little more chill approach. Reconnecting with nature and the world as we done our camo pants, spray ourselves with animal musk, and go hunting in theHunter: Call of the Wild. Full disclosure - none of us are hunters.
We can remember the old days when December was THE time to go through our backlog. No new releases to hog our attention - just tons of games to finally play during the school break. Thanks to the digital revolution with no need to have an open retail store this has obviously changed. There were even new co-op releases on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! All in all our database saw an increase of 130 new entries this month - including all titles from the Space Invaders-Franchise offering co-op modes. So what are you waiting for? Go play some co-op games with your family and friends!
It's been over a year since Gears 5 launched, and the Co-Opticrew is finally getting back to it. Nick just wrapped up the campaign and will be heading into the new Hivebusters DLC that just launched, and the whole team decided to dive into the Escape mode, the new 3 player co-op scenario in the game.
