To add insult to injury, the whole situation arrived under the shadow of an erroneous in-game announcement.  After some sort of mistake caused players to see a notification discussing the upcoming shutdown, Toylogic quickly redacted the message and has now posted the following statement:

The new playable character is Patrick "Bash" Conaghan who's default amulet power appears to be some kind of electric smash attack (maybe "Bash" will one day be reborn as an Arc Titan...), called the "Wrath of Quetzalcoatl." As mentioned before, "Bash" is available to all Season Pass holders for free, and if you want to pick him up otherwise, he'll cost you $6.99. He's available across all versions (PC, PS4, and Xbox One) of the game.

Adding better rewards for playing with other people was initially done in response to community feedback as players noted that the difficulty increased based on the number of players, but not the rewards. So the initial solution was to just increase the rewards received. This was good, but according to the players, it resulted in a ton of worthless loot. In comes hotfix 3.2.2! With this refinement, players are now guaranteed legendary gear, with changes for additional ones to drop, and they'll also receive an experience boost. Here's how it breaks down:

You can check out the complete ‘Our World, My Story’ trailer below, unfortunately the video shows very little in the way of co-op, barring the jump cuts of combat that feature multiple players. As Anthem is currently set for a release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC come February 22nd 2019, it is likely more details will continue to emerge as the date approaches.

A lot of the changes here are quality-of-life stuff, like making the inventory better to navigate/manipulate, making the quest journal easier to parse, and other UI improvements, and balancing changes including adding a new/easier difficulty mode if you just want to engage in the story without having to worry too much about combat. Perhaps the bigger change, though (and you should just avoid everything from page 14 on), is an overhaul of the third act of the game. Seems a lot of folks had some issues with the story beats and how certain elements played out so Larian Studios revamped things.

One of the first new features fans of the first game may notice is the liquid physics that result in a bunch of lava getting dropped on poor Ana's head. Those physics mean that if you cause any kind of liquid to leave its confines, it will follow a path until it finds a new receptacle or reaches the bottom of the level, which could make things even harder for you. The other new feature that we see amidst the reveal of online co-op (!) is the concept of layered levels. Basically, in every level, there will be a door (either hidden or in plain sight) that will take you to a new layer with a different layout than the previous one. In the video (right around the 0:40), this is shown as players first being in a kind of underground looking place, and then in a more jungle environment. I'm sure there are other little things that Spelunky enthusiasts will glom onto in all of this, but I'm just excited to be able to team up with friends online now!

We hadn't heard much from the developer, Question, since The Blackout Club was first teased earlier this year, but the former Bioshock and Dishonored devs have now been kind enough to show off some footage of the game to get us all spooked before its 2019 release.  Just be aware, though, that everything is still in a very early state.

The update is available now and you can check out the official post on the Halo Waypoint site for all the details on what it includes (such as visual enhancements if you're on the Xbox One X, "intelligent delivery" so you can choose what to install, and faster load times), but the real highlight here is adding LAN support. This means you and your buddies can all get together with your individual TVs and Xbox Ones, connect them to a network hub, and game together without needing any Internet connection at all. Per 343, here's how you set that up:

Luckily, the wait is over, as "Shadows Over Bögenhafen" is now available for download.  Alongside a hefty patch, the DLC adds two new missions, "The Pit" and "The Blightreaper", as well as a bunch of new cosmetics for players to nab.  Since Fatshark is oh-so-kind, both missions can be accessed by anyone via the game's Quickplay option, but only the folks who paid for "SOB" can use the new missions in custom games and, more importantly, garner the additional cosmetics.

We captured some of our experiences with the first campaign mission and a bit of the horde mode last week, so you can check that out if you're curious to see how the game plays. We'll undoubtedly do a stream of it soon, too, as part of our regular Monday night "Let's Play Co-Op" streams, if you need to see a bit more. While I haven't spent a lot of time with it, I had a lot of fun with the bits we played last week and looking forward to playing some more. It's got just enough character progression in it to keep you coming back but without as much of the random loot aspect like in Vermintide 2.

We're pretty big fans of both Overcooked games here at Co-Optimus, as evidenced in our recent review.  As such, we're pretty pleased with the opportunity to dive back into some cooperative cooking adventures.  Plus, that very same update adds a few extra goodies for completing the game as well as some minor changes to help streamline the whole experience.
