Dauntless Now Available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 With Cross-Play

about X hours ago from

Today, Phoenix Labs' vision of "One Dauntless" comes true as the action-RPG title is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, AND it supports full cross-play/cross-progression with those consoles and the PC version. Playing on the PS4 but a couple friends are on the PC and another is on the Xbox One? No problem. Get out there and hunt those Behemoths with whomever you want on whatever platform you want.This achievement is something Phoenix Labs has been working on for quite some time and the fact that they somehow made it through Sony's draconian cross-play measures is a feat in itself. With update 0.8, you can link your Epic Games account to your Xbox One and/or PlayStation 4 accounts and then you'll be free to play the title anywhere you want!IMPORTANT NOTE: if you have played Dauntless on the PC and wish to link accounts, you need to do that BEFORE you set the game up on the PS4 or Xbox One. You can check out the full details on their "Account Linking Guide."

Watch Rainbow 6 Siege's Two New Operators In Action

about X hours ago from

Last week, we touched on one of the two operators being added in this season of Rainbow 6 Siege's continuous updates.  Wouldn't you know it, Ubisoft has gone ahead and released a (relatively) lengthy gameplay video showing both operators in all their tactical glory.Nøkk, who has already been teased, is an attacker whose focus lies in their ability to move about undetected.  This is presumably explained through some sort of Clancy-esque technological nonsense, but I like to imagine that Rainbow convinced an actual Scandinavian witch to join in on their CQC escapades.  On the more domestic side of things, the defending team is receiving Warden, a good ol' Kentucky boy with fancy glasses that let him see through flash grenades.The gameplay of the above video takes places the Kafe Dostoyevsky map, whose rework also features in this season of updates.  This has probably been repeated ad nauseam at this point, but Ubisoft's dedication to rolling out both fixes and new content to their tactical shooter has been a joy to watch, especially when the game seemed to be forgotten by the larger gaming audience. 

Work With Friends to Renovate Homes in Tools Up!

about X hours ago from

Did you like the idea/co-op experience of Overcooked but wanted to do something other than cooking? Well, then you may be interested in The Knights of Unity's and All in! Games' Tools Up! This four player couch co-op title tasks you and your buddies to renovate apartments by knocking down walls, laying tiles, putting down carpet, moving furniture, and more.There will be a series of tasks/improvements to make for each of the apartments you'll be renovating and you'll need to work together to get them all done in time. The one twist to this is that only one player will be able to change the camera angle to focus on different areas of the apartment. I'm sure that won't be used to grief your friends...There's no set release date for Tools Up! just yet, but it should be out sometime this year. Four player couch co-op will be supported in the campaign and the Party Mode, which lets you replay any level you want. The title will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Super Mario Maker 2 Will Let You Build Levels With A Buddy

about X hours ago from

During yesterday's short Nintendo Direct, the developer/publisher pulled back the curtain on the forthcoming Super Mario Maker 2 and revealed that not only are there some new creation options for everyone to enjoy, but that the game will also support co-op play! Hooray!Ever since the game was first announced during February's Nintendo Direct and we saw that title screen with Mario and Luigi on it, we've been hoping that there would be some form of co-op in it. Yesterday's Direct officially revealed that not only will Super Mario Maker 2 support couch co-op, but online co-op and local WLAN co-op, too! That's the good news. The less good news is that the couch co-op is relegated solely to one mode (building/creating) while the online/WLAN co-op is used in another. Here's how it breaks down:There are a number of other new features in this sequel compared to the original Wii U title, such as the terrifying "Angry Sun" from Super Mario Bros 3, the ability to choose how a level auto-scrolls, and more. There's a handy "what's new" section in the video above that goes through everything that's been added if you were a fan of the first. If you (like me) never played the first, well, then, it's all new!

Ubisoft Is Teasing A New Rainbow 6 Siege Operator

about X hours ago from

Ubisoft, never content to rest on their laurels, has continued pouring new maps, items, and operators into their popular multiplayer title, Rainbow 6 Siege.  It's served them well, as the game's playerbase is now reportedly around 45,000,000 strong.  That's nothing to sneeze at. This time around, they're teasing the arrival of a new attack-oriented operator, Nøkk.  The accompanying trailer is quite brief, so it's hard to tell the exact dynamics they'll be adding to the game, but it'll almost undoubtedly revolve around a disappearing act.We'll find out more about both Nøkk and the rest of "Operation Phantom Sight" on May 19th, when the Pro League Finals are being held in Milan.  Alongside Nøkk, this season of content will also introduce another new operator as well as a rework of the Kafe map.  "Operation Phantom Sight" serves as the second season in year four of Rainbow 6 Siege's content releases.  The prior season, "Operation Burnt Horizon", added Mozzie and Gridlock to the operator roster and the Outback map.
