After launching first on Switch and then PlayStation 4, SNK 40th Anniversary Collection has finally arrived on Xbox One as well. Collecting more than 25 arcade and NES classics in one slick package, half of which support local co-op, this collection from Digital Eclipse might just be the retro compilation to beat this generation.
Two weeks ago, "Operation Oracle" dropped for Ghost Recon Wildlands and introduced a new character - Major Cole D. Walker (voiced by Jon Bernthal) - along with a couple missions featuring him. Ubisoft also teased that these missions would "challenge your perception of the truth [within the game world]" and that what you "discover here might very well set the scene for the future." A week later, that future was revealed as Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint and - surprise! - Bernthal will be returning as Walker and the primary antagonist.Following on the events of "Operation Oracle," Breakpoint takes you from the jungles of Bolivia to the remote Auroa Archipelago, the home of the fictional technology giant Skell Technology. The archipelago features "11 unique biomes" ranging from deserts to snow-capped peaks (i.e., "we had to think of SOME kind of reason to let you run around different environments) and it's used by Skell to test out their autonomous drones, which is bad news for you as Walker and his army of "Wolves" is using those drones against you. Walker's exact purpose for taking over the island isn't clear, but you know he's gotta be up to no good.

Part of the Co-Opticrew is entering stealth mode for the weekend thanks to recent news of Tom Clancy's adepts producing another backwards baseball cap simulator. In preparation for the stealthy-but-not game's release later this year, we'll mostly be playing video games, but I'm assuming that activity will be interlaced with mud plastering sessions and figuring out which caterpillars are safe to eat.Elsewhere, we'll be enjoying more loot shooting, more spine ripping, and more ghoul dating. Check it out!Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Busy weekend, but Destiny 2 when there's time."
Behold, it is I, the bearer of news great and small. Today's gift for the masses probably won't impact a large number of readers, but I'm fairly certain owners of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition on Xbox One X will be pleased as punch.As of a couple days ago, the game now supports 4K on the Xbox One X, putting it in parity with the game's PlayStation 4 and PC versions. This update comes precisely two years after its release, which is pretty impressive support considering Full Clip Edition is more or less a remaster of the original version, released in 2011. Now, you and your friends can enjoy all that over-the-top carnage in disgustingly high definition.A new patch is rolling out for Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition on XboxOne today! This patch is adding 4K support to the game! pic.twitter.com/9Jt3ldPhxK
There's a new asymmetrical multiplayer game in town called Bossgard and for this week's "Let's Play Co-Op," Mike, Jason, and Nick donned their viking helmuts and viking gear to take on some killer bread! In this 1 v 5 game, 5 players take on the roles of different vikings to bring down 1 big boss. You can have humans in all of those slots, or you can do 5 humans vs 1 A.I. boss (our preference). The title is currently in Early Access on Steam and there's certainly some areas where you can see this is still a work in progress, like the balancing between the two sides, but there's certainly promise.The core gameplay is in the twin-stick shooter vein of action where, as a viking, you'll have a special ability, an ultimate ability, and a dodge. The boss has a health bar that you'll being whittling away until it hits its second phase and you'll have to duke it out some more. The vikings have a very small amount of health in comparison but they also have a pool of lives from which they can pull in order to respawn if defeated. Once the boss is out of health, or the vikings are all dead with no more respawns, the battle is over. Things are definitely weighted towards the boss, but the vikings have a few tricks up their sleeves to give them an edge.
We've added BOSSGARD for the PC to our database of Co-Op games!
If World War Z is any indicator, it seems that folks are still very much into the concept of blasting zombies with their friends. Who knew?Following a successful launch, Saber Interactive is trying to keep the game's momentum going with a three-month plan for free content. Starting this month, players will receive new missions to complete, new zombies to slay, and new weapons to do it with.The content coming in May revolves around a new Tokyo mission, which presumably takes place aboard a yacht (also known as the third worst place to encounter a zombie horde). If that wasn't enough, players will also start facing a new type of zombie that spits diseased projectiles at them. June will herald the arrival of new cosmetic options, as well as a harder difficulty level offering an exclusive reward for players who are equal to its challenge. Then, July will bring a new weekly challenge mode, a new weapon, variants for some existing weapons, and even more of those sweet, sweet cosmetics. Private lobbies and a survival mode will also come in the near future, but there aren't any specifics on when.
