Co-op Survival Shooter 'Aliens: Fireteam Elite' Coming in August

It's natural to be wary of a new Aliens game. The last one was a Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance-like trainwreck, after all. Still, the new third-person shooter formerly known as Aliens: Fireteam comes from an entirely different developer and publisher, Cold Iron Studios and Focus Home Interactive, and it looks pretty sweet. The game has recently been rebranded as Aliens: Fireteam Elite, and it will be releasing on Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam on August 24.

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.

But at what cost?

Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance Available Today

One of the bigger nostalgia trips for gamers of a certain age/generation is the Dark Alliance series, which had their heyday in the PS2/Original Xbox/Gamecube era. These action-RPGs provided a Diablo-like experience long before Diablo III was even a twinkle in Blizzard's eye. Today, a new entry, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance, has emerged for PC, PlayStation 4/5, and Xbox One/Series, and initial response is... well, it's not great.

Steam Version of 'Earth Defense Force: World Brothers' Ditches Region-Locking

When we reviewed Earth Defense Force: World Brothers, the recent EDF spin-off from Yuke's and D3 Publisher, we mostly had a great online co-op experience. The Steam version of the game, however, inexplicably suffered from region-locked lobbies. (The PlayStation and Switch versions weren't affected.) Workarounds will no longer be necessary when playing with folks from other places, thankfully, because the region locking has now been fixed!
