Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for March, 2021

Did you see that?! Holy Moly! More than 70 (!) new co-op releases across various platforms in March - including some very high profile titles like Monster Hunter Rise, Balan Wonderworld, It Takes Two as well as the start of the Open Beta (PC-only) for Magic: Legends and the long-awaited co-op patch for Watch Dogs: Legion. It's safe to say that there was (and is) something for everyone with their friends and family to enjoy.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for January, 2021

According to our highly accurate counter we've hit a new milestone in January: There are now 7.600 entries in our database. But while this number is very impressive - there are still some holes here and there. Of course no one can ever be perfect - even your No. 1 site for co-op games. Our Database Manager does however try his best. For example the last two months he went through the entire Nintendo eShop catalogue all the way back to 2011 and added every last co-op games from it we were missing (and many more he found during this research). The results are more than 400 new entries to the Database in January including more obscure franchises like the Super Chinese-Beat-'em-up-series. Don't worry though if you prefer your games to be from this century: January was also packed with quite a few new releases as you can see below.

Co-Op Monthly Round-Up for October, 2020

More than 50 games offering co-op features were released last month across all the major platforms. So while everyone (yes, including us) is waiting for the Next Generation(TM) to arrive in a few weeks, there's still more than enough co-op fodder available to pass the time with friends. The database meanwhile saw an increase of 170 old, new and upcoming titles during the month, making sure that we remain your primary source for co-op gaming!

Ghost of Tsushima: Legends Adds Co-Op, Available Today

Sucker Punch's stylish samurai third-person action game, Ghost of Tsushima, received its 1.11 update today, which not only brings New Game+ to the title but a whole new co-op mode as well. "Legends" will let you and some friends work together in three different mission types: Story, Survival, and Raid (coming at a later date). Players will choose to play as one of four different classes - Samurai, Ronin, Hunter, and Assassin - and will gain new gear and abilities for their class as they play.

Cuphead Gets A Surprise Release On PlayStation 4

Cuphead and its heavily stylized run'n'gun gameplay first landed on Xbox One and PC back in 2017, but it quickly became clear that the title's brilliant blend of cartoon aesthetics and unforgiving difficulty shouldn't be sequestered to Microsoft's corner of the industry.  In the time since, it's also been released on Nintendo Switch, and finally, the game has arrived on PlayStation 4.

Co-Op Month in Review - June 2020

It's been a while since we've done a co-op month in review here at Co-Optimus, but I thought it was worth pointing out that we have a brand new staff member that is devoted solely to improving our database. As such we've added almost 300 games this month closing several gaps and adding a lot of the newly announced titles during the time that was traditionally E3.
