Combined Arms Mode for Battlefield V Finally Arriving Next Month

Battlefield V launched back in November 2018 with only a couple of the gameplay modes that were initially discussed/revealed with the latest entry in the Battlefield franchise. One of the modes that was missing was the cooperative "Combined Arms," which would let you team up with three friends to complete a mission. DICE finally announced a few days ago that that mode will finally be coming to the game as part of the "Lightning Strikes" content sometime next month.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2's Co-Op Campaign Revealed

We heard news a little while back that the next Battlefleet Gothic game, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 (it's a game in the Warhammer 40k universe, if you didn't know), would feature a full co-op campaign, but not much else beyond that. Now, with the title a week away from release, we're finally getting all the info and a little glimpse of what to expect from the three playable campaigns.

Retro FPS DUSK Will Be Getting Co-Op In 2019

If you miss the days of QuakeQuake II, and DOOM (1993) and wish someone would put out a modern version of those classics, then you may be interested in a little title called DUSK. This passion project draws a lot of inspiration from those famous PC FPS games of the early to mid 90s, and in a recent post, one of the developers stated that they have some additional features planned for the title this year, including a console release and co-op.

[E3 2018] EA Reveals New Co-Op Platformer Unravel Two

EA Play's E3 2018 press conference just wrapped up, and while there wasn't a lot of co-op news, there were a couple things that caught our interest. Up first, Coldwood Interactive revealed Unravel Two, a follow-up to their charming single-player only platformer from 2016. This time around, though, two players can enjoy all the yarn-tastic adventure. Oh, and it's available right this very moment.

Hitman 2 Includes New Co-Op Mode, Available Now Via Pre-Order

IO Interactive announced yesterday that everyone's favorite silent assassin (if you're doing it right), Agent 47, will be returning in a brand new "world of assassination" in Hitman 2. This is a direct sequel to the episodic and extraordinarily fun quasi-reboot of Hitman that dropped in 2016. What's particularly exciting this time around is that a new co-op mode, called "Sniper Assassin," has been added, and it's available to play right now.

New Beyond Good and Evil 2 Video Shows A Smidgen of Co-Op

During a developer livestream last week, Ubisoft Montpellier showed off more of Beyond Good and Evil 2, perhaps one of the most anticipated video game sequels ever. While the reveal of the title itself was a big surprise during last year's E3, we here at Co-Optimus got a nice surprise during that livestream when the devs (finally) discussed the co-op gameplay... sort of.

Escape Update Adds Co-Op Mode to DEAD DOZEN

Fntastic, the developers that (initially) brought us The Wild Eight, launched a new game on Steam Early Access last month in the form of the multiplayer FPS/action title, Dead Dozen. While the main focus is an interesting blend of PvP and co-op where dead teammates get back up as ghouls (still controlled by the player) that attack their former friends. Today, they release an update titled "Escape" that adds a new strictly co-op mode.

Lovers in a Dangerous FTL?

Team Up With Friends to Man A Space Station in Undercrewed

I loved Subset Games' FTL, and the only thing about it I didn't like was that I couldn't bring in some friends to help crew the ship and save the galaxy. I'm guessing I wasn't the only one that felt that way because Undercrewed, a new co-op title that's currently in development, seems to be drawing some strong inspiration from not only FTL, but also Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.
