Soon, we can make our own co-op Bubble Bobble levels!

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop Bursting onto Steam September 30

Billy Joe Armstrong of Green Day famously sang a plea to wake him when September ends. What's so good about the end of September, though? As it turns out, the last day of September will be very good for Bubble Bobble fans this year. That's when Bubble Bobble 4: The Baron's Workshop launches on Steam, complete with the first level editor in the series' history, 200 built-in levels, and 4-player local co-op.

PC gamers will finally get in on the bubble-blowing fun.

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop Heading to Steam with a Level Editor

Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, the latest game in Taito's classic co-op arcade platformer series, released on PlayStation and Switch a while back and later received extra levels with 'The Baron is Back' update. The next logical step for Taito and publisher ININ would seem to be the release of Xbox and PC versions. Sadly, Taito continues to avoid showing Xbox any love, but a Steam version is finally happening. It will be called Bubble Bobble 4 Friends: The Baron's Workshop, and it will feature a brand-new level editor.

Can you smell what Turtle Rock is cookin?

Back 4 Blood Co-Op Preview

Earlier this week we had the opportunity to check out Back 4 Blood, the latest from Turtle Rock Studios. During their sneak peek event we played through a PVP session and a lengthy co-op campaign. My initial thought was "how do you improve on a pillar of co-op gaming like Left 4 Dead?" After playing for a couple hours, I can say it has a lot of cool things going for it.

'Almighty: Kill Your Gods' Goes Underground in Latest Steam Update

Almighty: Kill Your Gods is an action RPG from Versus Evil and developer RUNWILD Entertainment that launched on Steam Early Access in May. Despite the Early Access tag, the game already features truly impressive (perhaps even Monster Hunter-esque) graphics and online co-op. Almighty just got even mightier thanks to an update that adds a challenging subterranean Hollows realm to explore.

Borderlands 3 Now Has Crossplay on Most Platforms

Borderlands 3 is one of the biggest co-op shooters around. It's not exactly hard to find other players with which to co-op loot-shoot, but more potential players is usually better, right? As of today's update, finding online co-op partners should be even easier; crossplay (cross-platform multiplayer) has finally come to most versions of Borderlands 3. The update also adds permanent seasonal event toggling, a new level cap increase, and more.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands will spin-off from Borderlands in 2022

The Borderlands series has always featured a post-apocalyptic-ish science fiction setting, but that will be changing when Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands comes to town. 2K and Gearbox have announced the new standalone spin-off game for an early 2022 release on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will feature a pen-and-paper fantasy role-playing theme, character creation, and, of course, 4-player co-op.
