Zombie Vikings Is Out Now On Xbox One

about X hours ago from

Zombie Vikings first stepped into our lives back in the Fall of 2015 on PlayStation 4.  Later that year, it made the logical step to the Personal Computer, and a few months past that, the crew at Zoink Games announced that they'd be bringing their co-op brawler to the Xbox One.  Then, as though mimicking the monks of old, the developers sequestered themselves into what I can only imagine is a mountainous cavern system which can only be entered by crawling through a stone etching of Odin himself.  They've just re-emerged, if not for a bit of fresh air, then at least to announce that Zombie Vikings has been released on Microsoft's home console.If you're curious just what Zombie Vikings is all about, we reviewed it back when it was first released on PlayStation 4.  In essence, you and up to three friends command a cadre of undead warriors as they seek to retrieve the eye of Odin from the trickster, Loki.  Throw in a bit of goofy humor and you've got yourself a game.

Civilization VI Will Finally, Finally Get Co-Op Play In The Next Update

It's been a few months coming, but Civilization VI will (at long last) receive multiplayer team functionality in an upcoming patch.  According to Firaxis, the ability to truly play the game cooperatively has been one of the most requested additions, alongside modding tools, which are being added as well.Speaking of which, the game will also be integrated with Steam Workshop, allowing players to easily browse and download community mods that pique their interest.  Finally, I have an easy way to change all the civilization leaders into characters from Katawa Shoujo!As always, the patch will feature numerous bug fixes and balance changes.  Firaxis wasn't especially clear about when the patch will hit or many other details, but it's said to be coming soon.

Wildlands Open Beta Available for Pre-load

One of the many welcoming trends of modern gaming (in my opinion, at least) is the inclusion of the open beta. Interested in an upcoming title? What better way to determine whether you should part from your hard earned cash than to test drive a portion of the game for free? It certainly beats buying a game based on a few random screenshots plastered on the back of the box.For all those keeping a watchful eye on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands, you'll be pleased to know that the open beta is available for pre-load on the PC through Uplay (with Xbox One and PS4 versions soon to follow). If you're unfamiliar with Wildlands, it's the latest open-world military shooter from Ubisoft featuring customizable characters, weapons, and a sprawling Bolivian landscape that is the largest environment in a Ubisoft action-adventure title. Throw in 4-player online co-op along with tons of missions and multiple ways to approach them, and you've got yourself a party.  The open beta begins on February 23rd and ends on the 27th of the month.  After sinking your teeth into the beta, you'll be able to purchase the full title on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on March 7th, 2017.

about X hours ago from

Last night we took down some Nazis. We did our duty on President's day in the United States and fought back against the oppressors. We've got a handful of videos recapping the action in Sniper Elite 4, out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.First up is a look at Overwatch, the two player asymettrical co-op mission puts one player in the role of a sniper and the other in the shoes of a saboteur. Set on Railyard, the map is huge and expansive with lots of objectives to complete and many ways to accomplish it.The last two videos are from the game's four player co-op survival mode (though only three of us took part). Set across two vastly different maps players are tasked with surviving a set number of waves of enemies while defending a radio listening station that moves every couple of waves.

Local Co-Op Has Been Added To Ruin Of The Reckless

Action roguelike title, Ruin of the Reckless, is well on its way to completing the journey from Twinkle in the Developer's Eye to Actual, Real, Video Game.  With a late-March release date looming on the horizon, developer Faux Operative is hard at work throwing on some extra polish to their Beta as well as... wait, what's this?  LOCAL CO-OP?!Well, okay, maybe it's not that surprising, considering that's one of the core tenets listed on the game's Kickstarter page, but it's exciting nonetheless.  Drawing inspiration from such games as Nuclear Throne and Samurai Gunn, RotR has promised to deliver co-op gameplay in which both players control their own, unique character, not some puny, throwaway sidekick.  While we're not quite able to see both unique characters in action (both players control a duplicate of Stargrove for the time being, as seen above), the local two player co-op is clearly nearing completion.  It appears the rest of the game is as well, since the patch notes indicate the developer's focus has shifted to performance and stability improvements alongside the co-op implementation.

Super Dungeon Bros Co-Op Review

A horde of skeletons bears down on you and three of your Bros (or Broettes), cutting you off from a brisk escape.  Behind them, a mad necromancer cackles from beneath a rippling sphere of protective energy.  That is, until the light from a nearby fire disperses the shadows beneath your helmets, revealing four cocky smiles.  Your axes and hammers swing mightily, shattering bone and sending cartilage flying into the night as you brawl your way toward the now-cowering villain.  All the while, screeching guitars send word of your badassery into the heavens above.

The Humble Freedom Bundle Supports America and Co-Op

The latest bundle on Humble Bundle is a bit different than previous affairs. While most bundles allow the buyer to mix their contributions up between a charity, the developers, and the store itself with a pay what you want transaction; the latest one is different. Instead all proceeds will go towards the following charities: The ACLU, Doctors without Borders, or The International Rescue Committee.Considering the tumultuous nature of American politics, liberties, and media lately a bundle like this was only a matter of time. The good news for co-op gamers is there are plenty of great titles in this bundle for you to enjoy. Here's the co-op ones we spy...You'll also get plenty of other great games, books, and audio downloads. It's honestly the best deal Humble Bundle has put out and many thanks to the developers for donating their games to this charity.
