Update: Co-op issues have been resolved.

The MultiVersus Open Beta is Here, and Co-op is Now Working Smoothly

MultiVersus is a highly anticipated free-to-play Super Smash Bros.-style fighting game from Warner Bros. After a closed beta period followed by an early access period for premium bundle owners, the open beta has arrived. What should be a celebratory launch day has been somewhat mired, however, by what appears to be a broken party system. Update: Thankfully, the party and co-op issues were resolved by the next day.

TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection Arrives on August 30 with Bodacious Co-op

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Cowabunga Collection, Konami's collection of 8-bit and 16-bit TMNT games, was first announced back in March. At the time, we expected it to come out before the hotly anticipated TMNT: Shredder's Revenge. That didn't happen, but the end is nearly insight, dudes. Konami has announced that The Cowabunga Collection will launch on consoles and PC on August 30. Now that we know the collection's release date, let's break down its co-op features.

Call of Duty: Warzone's Zombies Mode is Free This Week, Season Four Coming July 26

Call of Duty: Vanguard 's campaign mode might not have set the world on fire, but the multiplayer modes are still going strong.

What's more, July 26 will see the "Mercenaries of Fortune" update arrive (though without a new Zombies map).

Dungeons of Sundaria Now on Steam Early Access and PlayStation

Split-screen co-op isn't the most common feature among PC games. Even less common are games that offer both split-screen and online multiplayer. Hence, Dungeons of Sundaria from Industry Games already stands out from the crowd. A 3D action RPG/dungeon crawler featuring 4-player local and online co-op and highly customizable characters, Dungeons of Sundaria is out on Steam Early Access and PlayStation 4 and 5.

MultiVersus Now Available in Early Access, Goes Free to Play on July 26

There once was a movie called Space Jam: A New Legacy that combined numerous Warner Bros. characters and properties. It's a very bad movie that should be avoided at all costs! However, the idea of mixing WB properties together clearly has some appeal, hence the new Smash Bros.-style fighting game, MultiVersus. Players who buy any premium edition of MultiVersus can play it right now, but the game will officially launch in free to play form on July 26.

This stylish sequel to Yar's Revenge is almost here.

Atari Announces Yars: Recharged for August, Sequel to Yar's Revenge

Yar's Revenge is a Atari 2600 shoot 'em up that released in 1982 and is still fondly remembered by gamers of the era. During the Xbox 360 days, Atari released a 3D rail shooter which added co-op but reimagined the insect protagonists as human-like characters. 40 years after the first Yar's Revenge (!!!), the series is due for a comeback with Yars Recharged on modern consoles and PC. This one hews closely to the original, with playable space flies, 2D shooting, and the welcome addition of local co-op.

At last, anybody can beat and enjoy this famously tough but fun brawler.

Final Vendetta Gets Casual Difficulty and Stage Select on All Platforms

Final Vendetta from Bitmap Bureau is a game that keeps on giving. The retro-style beat 'em up impressed us at launch with its gorgeous Neo Geo-style graphics, catchy soundtrack, and fun gameplay. However, the difficulty was quite frustrating, which reflected in our co-op review score. When we interviewed developer Mike Tucker, he promised that balancing updates would be coming. The console versions of the game have finally been updated, and we've got the details and screenshots to prove it.

Grab a friend for run-and-gun fun in this Contra-style shooter.

WayForward's Spidersaurs Has Escaped Onto Consoles and PC

We've been so excited for WayForward's new run-and-gun shooter, Spidersaurs, that we interviewed the developer ahead of release day. Spidersaurs lets players arm up and blast away at a variety of freaky dino-spider hybrids. It's a deliberately cartoon-like concept that allows for colorful characters and levels, not to mention widely varied and unique monster baddies. Spidersaurs has finally launched on all major platforms, complete with 2-player local co-op.

How to Activate the Cheat Menu and Infinite Health in Final Vendetta

When I reviewed Final Vendetta, the modern retro-style brawler from Bitmap Bureau, my chief complaint was the game's difficulty. It's fun but tough! In our interview with developer Mike Tucker, he promised that balance tweaks and a new Casual difficulty setting would be coming to consoles. Players needn't wait for the patch to beat the game, though, because there's already a cheat menu with a level select and invincibility option! We'll tell you how to reach it.
