Rainbow Six Extraction, the co-op title that started as a spin-off mode for the popular competitive FPS Rainbow Six Siege, has gotten pushed back a little bit. During E3 last month, Ubisoft announced that the game - which was previously known as Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Rainbow Six Parasite before that - would launch on September 16 this year.

Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition Co-Op Beta Stream Recap

Last night Jason and I checked out one of the five new co-op missions in Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition. We settled in on the Battle of Hastings which took place in 1066 between the French-Norman army led by William, Duke of Normandy and the English king Harold. Of course like any good historical strife, it's not as cut and dry as a two way battle for the throne.

Tribes of Midgard Arrives Later This Month on PC and PlayStation

Around this time last year (which only feels like 5 years ago), we heard about a new action-survival game called Tribes of Midgard, which showed players running around a world fighting monsters from Norse legends, collecting materials, and building a home base. The title looked promising - particularly as it supports up to 10 players online - and during this year's Summer Game Fest, we finally got news of an official release date. Fell giants and defend the Seed of Yggdrasil with your buddies on July 27, 2021.
