State of Decay 2's Daybreak DLC Arrives September 12

The last time we heard from Undead Labs about State of Decay 2, they were releasing some 4th of July themed weapons and zombies into the game. At the same time, they provided a rough outline of what was next for the zombie-survival game; specifically, DLC that would add a new co-op mode to the game. On Tuesday, they revealed that "Daybreak" will be arriving September 12 and will let four players team up to fight off waves of zombies.The new game mode is being described as a "replayable zombie siege experience," but we all know they're just trying to avoid saying "horde mode." Here's what they're saying about it:Players and up to three teammates play as highly skilled Red Talon soldiers armed with high-end weaponry; together, they will defend a fortified position against waves of oncoming zombies, while a vulnerable technician repairs a critical satellite relay.

For Honor Marching Fire DLC Will Include A Co-Op Arcade Mode

about X hours ago from

During this year's E3, Ubisoft revealed the next big content update for their action fighting game, For Honor. At the time, the biggest reveal was a new PvP mode (Breach) and a new playable faction, the Chinese. They teased a new PvE mode, but didn't state what that might be. Yesterday, at Gamescom, they finally pulled back the curtain on that mode: 2 player Arcade co-op.The setup for this mode is pretty interesting. You and another player team up online to take on a series of challenges across a number of chapters. There will be an initial difficulty selection that's based around the gear level of your chosen character (ranging from Common to Legendary), and each chapter will increase in difficulty as you successfully complete challenges. The biggest factor that determines that difficulty is the modifiers, both positive and negative, that are applied to you and the A.I. foes. You may be granted a health boost or immunity to being thrown, but then also have your max health reduced or deal reduced damage. These modifiers are randomized across you and your foes and they will vary depending the initial difficulty you select, and how far you progress.

Ubisoft Reveals 5 Different Editions for The Division 2

Ubisoft Reveals 5 Different Editions for The Division 2

If you're looking forward to playing Tom Clancy's The Division 2, then Ubisoft has a variety of editions they'd like to sell you. The publisher/developer revealed all these versions of the forthcoming sequel during Gamescom, and maybe the most interesting item in all of this is a "Year 1 Pass" for all editions above "Standard," which gives you early access to the free "Year One Episodes."It's interesting to see Ubisoft apply what is, essentially, their Rainbow 6 Siege model to other games. When the game was revealed a couple months ago during E3, it was awesome to hear that they had three content updates planned throughout the first year of the game's life, and that each of those would be free. In a way, then, it shouldn't be too surprising that they followed that up with a way for some players to get access to that content (along with a few other bonus goodies) before others as that announcement seemed a bit too good to be true. Creating new content and maintaining a game via balance updates is not cheap or easy, so certainly Ubisoft would need to generate some kind of revenue from the game post-launch to make that happen. With this, they're just shifting that to an initial up-front cost. It has been working for Rainbow 6 Siege, so why not The Division 2?

Young Souls Looks Fantastic in Motion

about X hours ago from

We heard there was a new brawler/RPG co-op game in the works called Young Souls, but outside of a vague description and a few concept shots, we didn't know too much about what to expect. While we're still a little shy on all the details, developers The Arcade Crew and 1P2P Studios dropped an official announcement trailer recently that has some interesting tidbits in it.Before getting into what you can see in the trailer below, just want to give a quick shout out to the art style here. From the environments to the motion of protagonists Tristan and Jenn and the enemies, Young Souls has a great look. Hopefully the gameplay matches! Speaking of, while there are a lot of jump cuts and scant seconds spent with anything meaningful, there are a few things we noticed.For now, still no word on what platforms Young Souls will be coming to, or when, exactly, it will be doing that. We've listed it as a PC title, and will update that when we hear more.
