Feel the Bern(thal)!

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint Arrives This October

Two weeks ago, "Operation Oracle" dropped for Ghost Recon Wildlands and introduced a new character - Major Cole D. Walker (voiced by Jon Bernthal) - along with a couple missions featuring him. Ubisoft also teased that these missions would "challenge your perception of the truth [within the game world]" and that what you "discover here might very well set the scene for the future." A week later, that future was revealed as Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint and - surprise! - Bernthal will be returning as Walker and the primary antagonist.

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.

The ‘Most Co-op Game EVER’ Gets a New Trailer

TwinCop Gets A Release Trailer

TwinCop, the upcoming twin-stick shooter from Finite Reflection, has received a new trailer in preparation for its soon-approaching May 10th release date onto the Steam store. The trailer can be found below and displays gameplay with which any twin-stick shooter fan should be familiar. However, this is not your average co-op, twin-stick gameplay. Per the game’s Steam description, “TwinCop is the most cooperative game, EVER. Play this action-packed, co-op, twin-stick shooter with your best bud or significant other. You and your friend are TwinCop: One player controls the right arm; the other controls the left arm; both of you control movement.”

Revisiting Earthfall Stream Recap

Last summer, we hopped into Holospark's FPS alien shooter Earthfall. The game was very much trying to capture that Left 4 Dead feel but with aliens instead of zombies. There were some interesting ideas, like the 3D printers for guns and setting up defenses, but it also felt like there just wasn't enough there. In the few months after its release, the devs did add some new content, so we figured we should finally hop back in to check it out.

Pirates are well-known for being the "high minds of the high seas"

Sea of Thieves' Anniversary Update Brings Co-Op Puzzle Solving

Rare's open-world piratical adventure game, Sea of Thieves, turned one year old last month, and to celebrate the occasion (a month later) they've released their free "Anniversary Update" today. This brings a few new additions, such as a dedicated PvP area and a new faction to earn rep with, but it also adds something that we, personally, have been waiting to see: co-op driven experiences.

Promise of no microtransactions within the game

Eden Rising Launches Next Month With A F2P Option

Nvizzio Creation's third-person action/tower-defense title, Eden Rising: Supremacy, will be making its way out of Early Access and into a full release next month. When it does, there will be two versions: the free-to-play "Explorer Edition," and the $25 "Ascendant Edition." The paid version does include four additional areas to explore and defend over the free version, along with some extra armor dyes and "Bestiary Mastery," but it also has a nice perk. Only one person needs to buy it for a group of friends to enjoy that that extra content.

Risk of Rain 2's Early Access "Forecast" Looks Good

We eagerly hopped into Hopoo's Risk of Rain 2 when it hit Early Access last month, and have been equally eager to hear what the developer's plans are for getting this thing to a full release. Today, Hopoo and Gearbox revealed the development roadmap of what will be added to the game and, roughly, when, leading up to the full release sometime next Spring.

Enjoy Classic Capcom Arcade Games in Your Home

Everybody's getting into the "classic games on a little box" game these days. Nintendo has the NES Classic and SNES Classic, Sega is releasing the Genesis Mini this Fall (we're waiting for the full list of games to be revealed so we know just how many co-op titles it will have), and last week, Capcom revealed that it's getting into the retro game market, too, with its "Capcom Home Arcade" console/controller.
