Awesomenauts developer Ronimo Games have announced their next title in partnership with Devolver Digital. Called Blightbound, the game is a dark and stylish co-op dungeon crawler that features hand painted gritty graphics.
Microsoft unveiled a slew of Xbox Series X titles today for their next generation console, and with it came a handful of cooperative focused titles. The one that really caught our eye was from Avalanche Studios called Second Extinction.
The first gameplay trailer for Magic: Legends dropped this week, giving us our first glimpses of two of the (initially) planned five playable classes - the Geomancer and the Mind Mage. Much of the action has a distinct Diablo-vibe to it, though there are a couple things in the trailer that help to root it in the Magic universe.
In a recent financial discussion, Ubisoft announced that their 2019 titles - The Division 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint - both underperformed. As a result, Ubisoft is reevaluating the development time needed for their upcoming games, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Watch_Dogs Legion. Unfortunately, this means both titles will be delayed to Fiscal Year “2020-21.”
Chucklefish's RTS game, Wargroove, is getting some new, free (!) DLC soon that adds a whole new campaign to play through. Best of all, it can be played cooperatively with a friend! Hooray!
The day some of us have been waiting for has finally arrived: "Shadowkeep," the newest expansion to Destiny 2, has arrived. It also brings with it the free-to-play version of the game, dubbed Destiny 2: New Light, so you and your buddies can team up for some fun regardless of who's bought or played what. However, the division of what's included in each of these things can be a bit confusing, so we've attempted to break it all down below. Fair warning: it's a long read.
NetherRealm Studios has revealed their bringing some co-op to Mortal Kombat 11, the latest entry in the long-running fighting series. The new mode, called "Team Raids," will pit three online players against one challenging opponent. While you will all be fighting the same opponent at the same time and all be doing damage to its health to bring it down, you'll be doing it in your own "fight line" so it'll look like a standard 1v1 match. Confused? Yeah, probably better to see it in action.
Some of us just can't get enough of Remnant: From the Ashes, so we decided to dive once more into Gunfire Games' action-RPG for our weekly "Let's Play Co-Op" stream. Mike, Locke, and Jason try to convince Nick that this really is the Dark Souls game for him. His response is above.
The first and second free content updates for Gunfire Games' Remnant: From the Ashes arrive today to give you more reasons (wait, you needed more?) to check out this excellent third-person action RPG. In addition to a new Earth dungeon that will randomly be shuffled into the mix each time you start/re-roll a campaign, you can check out all there is to offer in the different worlds of Remnant without having to start a new campaign thanks to the new Adventure Mode.
If you missed our weekly stream this week, which happened Tuesday night instead of Monday because Monday was holiday in the U.S., no worries! We've got a handy recap of all the co-op goodness from Remnant: From the Ashes, along with some impressions of the first few hours.
Gunfire Games' Remnant: From the Ashes has been out for two days now, and initial reviews are quite favorable. In part that's due to the difficulty of the encounters in the game, which requires players to come up with some interesting ways of dealing with whatever gets thrown at them. The other part is tackling those encounters with friends (or strangers). A recent interview with Mike Maza, Principal Designer at Gunfire Games, sheds a little light on how the team approached co-op.
Earlier this summer, with the reveal of the next Destiny 2 expansion, Shadowkeep, Bungie announced that their first-person shooter/action-RPG would be getting Cross Save support across all platforms (PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One). This functionality would allow players to use the same characters, same gear, and same progress across multiple platforms with just a few exceptions. In last week's "This Week at Bungie" post, the developer released some more details on what all this entails, and that it'll go live tomorrow, August 21.
