Conan Unconquered Arrives Later This Month With a Co-Op Mode

about X hours ago from

Funcom and Petroglyph have teamed up to create a different kind of Conan the Barbarian. Rather than run around as a naked man or woman hacking-and-slashing your enemies (and other players) to death, they've opted to go in a more strategic direction. Conan Unconquered is a "survival" RTS where you (and a buddy, if you like) have to build a stronghold and an army to defend it from wave after wave of enemies.Petroglyph has a history of RTS titles - they did all those 8-Bit titles and Grey Goo - which makes sense as it's a company comprised of developers that previously worked on Command & Conquer. Not only do they "have the RTS chops," but they specifically have the co-op RTS chops, which is good news. As a "survival" RTS, there's a slightly different bent on this game over their previous ones. Instead of building a huge army to stomp another one, you're trying to defend a single base (stronghold) against an unyielding tide of foes. Not only will you have to defeat any and all enemies that come your way, you'll also have to do a little city management as you create new buildings, stop the spread of fires, and combat the disease that can spread by bodies left on the battlefield (yuk).

Next Stardew Valley Update Will Allow Separate Cash In Co-Op

Next Stardew Valley Update Will Allow Separate Cash In Co-Op

We've all been there.  You spend hour upon hour toiling away in the fields, mines, and rivers of Pelican Town, only for your "teammate" to hop on down to the local hat emporium and spend all your hard-earned cash in one fell swoop.  That'd be pretty infuriating in any game, but even moreso in Stardew Valley, a game focused around planning and (mostly) not being frivolous.Luckily, version 1.4 of Stardew Valley is on its way, and with it will come the option to separate everyone's virtual wallets in the game's online co-op.  Players starting new farms will have the option to enable separation from the start, and those with existing farms can simply speak to the mayor to switch between the two modes.  Keep in mind, though, that making the split will divide the current cash amount evenly between all players.  Also, regardless of whether or not cash is earned separately, all players will still share the other aspects of the map, such as the community center, mines, and cave.Hey everyone, just wanted to share this screenshot from the upcoming 1.4 update! It's a big one, & this image only reveals a fraction of what's coming. Featured here is a new farm map called Four Corners that's perfect for the much requested "separate money" option in multiplayer pic.twitter.com/wwI1nHWpvX

Halo 5 Will Not Have Split-Screen Added

about X hours ago from

In a recent video promotion for the new all-digital Xbox One S, Microsoft showed off a sliver of split-screen gameplay for Halo 5, as the video’s audio states “They were playing Halo in conference room 4-B,” despite the title not supporting that particular feature. After this story broke, Community Manager Brian Jarrard of 343 Studios took to Twitter and wiped up the speculation in a tweet saying; “Sorry to disappoint but no, splitscreen isn’t being added to Halo 5. The footage in question looks to be a little bit of good old fashioned creative liberty in the editing bay.”While Halo 5 did come out 3 years ago, the possibility of an update to add split-screen would have been welcomed by the community (and us). However, whether or not split-screen will be making an appearance in the upcoming Halo: Infinite is yet to be determined. If you want to see the sweet seconds of what the split-screen looks like, you can see it in the video below at approx 0:42.Do you feel led on by the shot clip? Betrayed, as your sweet split-screen is thrown to the side for an online-focused future? Of course I don’t, but if you, tell us in the comments below! It’ll help my grieving process.

Sea of Thieves' Anniversary Update Brings Co-Op Puzzle Solving

about X hours ago from

Rare's open-world piratical adventure game, Sea of Thieves, turned one year old last month, and to celebrate the occasion (a month later) they've released their free "Anniversary Update" today. This brings a few new additions, such as a dedicated PvP area and a new faction to earn rep with, but it also adds something that we, personally, have been waiting to see: co-op driven experiences.

Eden Rising Launches Next Month With A F2P Option

Eden Rising Launches Next Month With A F2P Option

Nvizzio Creation's third-person action/tower-defense title, Eden Rising: Supremacy, will be making its way out of Early Access and into a full release next month. When it does, there will be two versions: the free-to-play "Explorer Edition," and the $25 "Ascendant Edition." The paid version does include four additional areas to explore and defend over the free version, along with some extra armor dyes and "Bestiary Mastery," but it also has a nice perk. Only one person needs to buy it for a group of friends to enjoy that that extra content.There have been a handful of other titles that have supported something similar, like only the host player in Vermintide 2 needs to own the DLC for all players to experience while connected to their game, but this is one of the few instances where the entire game is structured this way. The title supports up to eight players on one server so if even just one of them owns the Ascendant Edition (and creates the game in the first place), then all those players get access to that extra content. It's a pretty nice deal. Even nicer when you consider that the title is just $15 on Steam now and if you pick it up, you'll automatically be converted to the Ascendant Edition without having to pay anything more.Here's a handy-dandy chart that highlights the differences between the two:
