If your initial reaction to that headline was "I thought it already was?"... yeah...

Battleborn Will Finally Sunset In 2021

While Gearbox might be riding high right now with Borderlands 3, it wasn't that long ago that they attempted a whole new IP that didn't fare well. Development and updates for Battleborn officially ended two years ago and, honestly, I thought that the game was done around that same time. Apparently it's still been kicking around, but publisher 2K is now calling it quits and pulling the servers down... in another two years.

The Coalition further evolves the mode they created over 10 years ago

Gears 5 Horde Focuses on the Heroes You Play

A few days ago, The Coalition lifted up the curtain on the new Horde mode for the forthcoming Gears 5. While many of the same systems from Gears of War 4 are returning (i.e., using a Fabricator to build fortifications/guns, gathering energy to power the Fabricator, equipping cards on your character), there are a few tweaks, too.

Pretty sure all these videos should just have Neil Cicierega's "Bustin" playing in the background

Meet The Hive Bustin' Crew From Gears 5's Escape Mode

Last month, The Coalition showed off the new three player co-op mode that, Escape, will be a part of Gears 5 when it arrives in September. Rather than staying in one spot and fighting off wave after wave of enemies, Escape puts you in the boots of one of three members of a "Hivebuster" crew and tasks you with being able to get out from the middle of a Hive before the angry Swarm, or the deadly bio weapon you deployed, takes you out. In three new videos, you can now get a chance to "meet" the members of the crew and go ahead and call "dibs" on your fave.

I hear Mars is quite nice this time of year.

Warface Has A New Co-Op Campaign

Warface, the long-standing co-op shooter, has just released a brand new campaign for you and up to four other tactical aficionados to test your collective expertise.  This time around, though, players won't be blasting their way through the standard fare of Earth-based mercenaries and ne'er-do-wells.  Instead, they'll commuting from their bedrooms or living rooms all the way to Mars.

[E3 2019] - Gears 5 Arrives This September With a New Co-Op Mode

So much news, so little time! Rod Fergusson, studio head for The Coalition, took the stage during Microsoft's E3 press conference this year to talk about the newest entry in the Gears franchise, Gears 5. The last time we heard anything much about this game was during last year's E3, and it was a little surprising that not only did they have a new mode to show off and talk about, but a release date: September 10, 2019.

Your viking mileage may vary

Bossgard Stream Recap

There's a new asymmetrical multiplayer game in town called Bossgard and for this week's "Let's Play Co-Op," Mike, Jason, and Nick donned their viking helmuts and viking gear to take on some killer bread! In this 1 v 5 game, 5 players take on the roles of different vikings to bring down 1 big boss. You can have humans in all of those slots, or you can do 5 humans vs 1 A.I. boss (our preference). The title is currently in Early Access on Steam and there's certainly some areas where you can see this is still a work in progress, like the balancing between the two sides, but there's certainly promise.
