A Hat In Time Getting Campaign Couch Co-Op on the PC

about X hours ago from

In a recent video, Gears for Breakfast announced that the PC version of their 3D platforming title, A Hat In Time, will be getting the first of two planned DLC packs soon, and alongside that, a free update that lets you play the entire campaign in split-screen co-op! Both of these will be available on September 13th, and while it sounds like the co-op will always be free for players, the “Seal the Deal” DLC will be free on release day, with the price rising to $4.99 after that.In addition to this DLC news, the video officially announces that the game will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch with a tantalizing “coming soon” time frame. Unfortunately, it appears that the DLC and co-op are only headed to the PC version for now, with no word on when they might be available on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, or if it will be available for the Switch version when it launches. The full video covering all of the DLC, co-op, and Nintendo Switch version can be found below, but if you (like us here at Co-Optimus) are excited about the co-op, you can find that bit of news at the 3:10 mark.Are you ready to grab a friend and head out into A Hat In Time’s co-op platforming fun, or will you be waiting for the upcoming Nintendo Switch version?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Extreme Gamerz Only

Once again, the Co-Opticrew has managed to come up with an almost entirely diverse range of weekend plans.  It's like they get together beforehand and do this just to make it harder for me to come up with a title.  Well nice try, jerks.  I've got all kinds of titles up my sleeves, and you'd have to do this kind of thing at least two more times before I've exhausted all the good ones.So, what exactly is everyone playing?  Good question!  We've got retro gaming, strange brigading, and planet naming all lined up.  Check it out:  Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "Strange Brigade, Fortnite and maybe some Rise of the Tomb Raider."

Co-Op Has Been Patched Into MOTHERGUNSHIP For All Versions

We were excited to check out Terrible Posture Games' rogue-lite/bullet hell FPS, MOTHERGUNSHIP, with a buddy and enjoy the chaos as we crafted our own impossible guns. Sadly, the co-op feature was delayed on both the consoles and (just prior to launch) the PC. With the "MOTHERGUNFRIENDSHIP" update that was released this week, though, you can now play this intriguing title with a friend.The biggest part of the update was adding the promised two player online co-op mode to the game. Now you and a friend can team up to play through the campaign together using your custom-crafted weaponry. Should one player fall in combat, they'll turn into a turret on the other player's back, so the co-op goodness can continue. The update also added a few new enemies, some new room layouts (the levels are all randomly generated each time you do a "run"), and a handful of other balances/tweaks.MOTHERGUNSHIP is available now on the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Two player online co-op is supported throughout the campaign, except for the initial tutorial mission.

The Crew 2 Is Getting Gators And Hovercrafts On September 26th

about X hours ago from

Somewhere out there is a person playing The Crew 2 and thinking, "Sure, all this open-world racing is great or whatever, but what I really want is the sensation of drifting into a hairpin turn while also swatting at a horde of bloodthirsty mosquitoes."  Luckily for this hypothetical person, they'll only need to wait a little over a month for their wish to come true, as the "Gator Rush" update will be hitting The Crew 2 on September 26th."Gator Rush" serves as the first free content update for Ubisoft's latest racing game.  Crucially, it'll add the Hovercraft discipline to the game as well as three actual hovercrafts for you to careen around the map in.  Alongside this, a number of in-game locations have been tweaked for the optimal hovercraft experience.  The below trailer will give you a pretty solid idea of what all will be changing.Before we get to anything else, there's also a gameplay preview to whet your appetite even further.

Generation Zero Gameplay Trailer Emphasizes Survival Over Gunfights

about X hours ago from

Avalanche Studios has a playable demo at Gamescom of their forthcoming cooperative FPS game, Generation Zero. If like us, you're not out there to get your hands-on the game, then the good news is they've released a gameplay trailer that highlights some of the key aspects.When the title was first announced a couple months ago, one of the key ideas that was emphasized by the game's director, Emil Kraftling, was that this isn't a "go in guns blazing" kind of FPS, but a "guerrilla action game." The trailer actually shows off how some of that idea plays out as you get to see a few scenarios where a group of players lay an ambush for the machine foes, and either use different weapons (like a sniper rifle and an assault rifle) to take down a single target, or things in the environment, like an electrical breaker box. It also seems like you'll be working with friends to piece together clues and other details in the environment to figure out what happened and from whence the robots came. This is definitely not your typical FPS.
