The Elder Scrolls Online may have been out for a while, in fact it's something we checked out back in 2015, but recent updates and new expansion called Elsweyr has made us re-evaluate our interests in Bethesda's co-op heavy MMO.
As of yesterday, It's Anecdotal's couch co-op adventure title, 39 Days to Mars, can be acquired and played on your Xbox One. The game was first launched on PC via Steam back in April last year, and it will also be making its way to the Nintendo Switch sometime this year.
System Era Softworks' "sandbox adventure" game, Astroneer, is finally out of Early Access today and hits full 1.0! For this week's "Let's Play Co-Op," we decided to hop back in and kick the tires (and dig some holes underneath said tires).
By the end of March, we will not be in short supply of "loot shooters." Destiny 2 has seen a resurgence thanks to the "Forsaken" expansion and the steady roll-out of content ever since, Bioware's Anthem drops in just a couple weeks, and Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is just a month away from hitting the scene. If the latter's more "realistic" take on the genre (i.e., you're not shooting lasers or flying around in mech suits), and want to check it out before March 15, then you've got a little bit of time to try and get into the Private Beta that starts tomorrow.
Crackdown 3's release is just 9 days away, and to celebrate, we now have the official launch trailer for a game that was originally announced in 2015. Don't expect any radical differences here between the previous two games - you still have a powerful "Agent" that takes on gangs of enemies in a neon filled city given free reign to blow up and shoot up everything in sight.
Tindalos Interactive's Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 launched last Thursday and despite the co-op campaign part still being in Early Access, Nick and Jason decided to enlist with the Imperium in order to see the sights and purge some xenos!
A new Earth Defense Force is on the way for the PlayStation 4, and it appears to be the series most ambitious title yet. In a series that started as a budget game with a B movie feel, EDF has grown to a full fledged AAA release. Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain is going to bring many firsts for the series, including full fledge character customization. You know what that means? Hats and emotes!
First announced a year ago, Chucklefish's turn-based strategy game, Wargroove, will finally see the light of day in just a couple weeks... on the Switch, Xbox One, and PC, at least. The title is still coming to the PlayStation 4, but its release date is still TBD.
Magic Design Studios' action/adventure platformer, Unruly Heroes, is now available on the PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. This retelling of the "Journey to the West" story lets players team up on a couch and play as Wukong the Monkey King, Sanzang the Sleepy Monk, Kihong the Greedy Pig, Sandmonk the Sensitive Brute as they search for the remnants of the Sacred Scroll.
We've brought up QC Games' Breach a few times over the past couple months, and while the title has been accessible via a closed alpha for that time, last Thursday's Steam Early Access release opened the title up to a much wider audience. We dove in as part of our weekly "Let's Play Co-Op" stream and came a way with some highs and lows.
