Gunfire Games Discusses Co-Op in Remnant: From the Ashes

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.

Four new characters, two new game modes, and a new Infinity Rift

Curse of the Vampire DLC Arrives Sept 30 for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

The first DLC pack for MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order now has an official release date: Sept. 30. The pack is part of the $20 bundle that also includes two future DLC packs (Fantastic Four and X-Men), which has to be purchased as a whole (i.e., you can't buy the packs individually). If you've been enjoying your time with the game, which I sort of have, then picking the bundle up will certainly ensure you get even more stuff as this pack alone includes four characters (Blade, Punisher, Moon Knight, and Morbius), two new game modes, and a new Infinity Rift.

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.

A Sad Day In The Caves

Spelunky 2 Delayed

The upcoming Spelunky 2, which was set to release later in 2019, has been delayed. According to the game’s developer, Derek Yu, the sequel to 2008’s Spelunky is requiring more time as “the density and detail of the game is demanding more time.” This may come as a shock to some, considering how simple Spelunky seems on the surface, but due to the few details that have come from Yu up to this point there is no way to know what components of the sequel will be getting the extra time.

Destiny 2's Steam Linking on PC is Live Today, Cross Save Tomorrow

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.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic Gameplay Trailer

As if Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - a game about killing hordes of evil with medieval weapons - needed any more reason to be awesome, the game has received its first true expansion pack via the Winds of Magic, which adds weapons, maps, enemies, and a game mode. The expansion, which requires the base game to play, is available now on PC for $19.99. However, if you have a friend - and we here at Co-Optimus do enjoy games more with friends - who purchased the content they can invite you into their game even if you haven’t bought it yet.
