Bang-On Balls: Chronicles Gets Huge Space Race Level

Bang-On Balls: Chronicles, the ball-themed 3D platformer from Exit Plan Games, has been available on Steam Early Access for a while now. Updates have seen the addition of new co-op minigames and huge campaign levels. The latest level, "Race to Space," is based on the real-life space race between the USA and the Soviet Union in the 1950s and 60s. It's an absolutely massive level with lots for co-op and solo players to bang on about.

Valve Announces Portable Steam Deck PC, Will Have Serious Co-Op Potential

Valve, the company that owns Steam, might not really make games anymore, but it doesn't just operate the Steam storefront, either. In May, an Ars Technica report foretold that a portable Steam device would be happening, and now that forecast has come to pass. Today, Valve announced the Steam Deck, a portable PC that will come in three configurations starting at $399. We expect it to be an excellent way to take co-op Steam games on the go.

'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.

Phantasy Star Online 2 coming to Steam August 5 with cross-platform co-op

When SEGA’s Phantasy Star Online 2 launched on the Windows 10 Store on May 27, fan excitement was quickly tempered with disappointment over numerous technical issues. Some issues resulted from players having originally disabled or changed Xbox settings during their Windows installations, but others seem to have resulted from an extremely buggy installer.
