MGS3 Themed Co-Op Event Kicks Off Today in Metal Gear Survive

Of all the Metal Gear Solid titles, the third is hands-down my favorite and I don't think I'm the only one with that opinion based on Konami's recent announcement. Starting today and going until April 24, 2018, you can team up with a few friends and enjoy a special co-op event in Metal Gear Survive that will net you some special Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (snake eater) themed rewards.While the overall reception to Survive was pretty mild, Konami seems to be somewhat committed to continuing to support the title post-launch. Last month, the 1.04 update added a new co-op mission (Rescue), and this month, the "Encounter 1964" event provides players with at least a little bit of a reason to hop back into the game. Every time you hop in and play the event via Co-Op Play, you'll earn Battle Points (BP) that will unlock new gear, gestures, and other cosmetic goods that have something to do with the third entry in the Metal Gear Solid series. Here's everything you can earn/unlock:Metal Gear Survive is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It supports up to four players online in its co-op mode. The "Encounter 1964" event is available to play starting today, April 10, and ends on April 24 around 4:00 AM EDT.

about X hours ago from

The folks at Ubisoft are bringing back everybody's favorite stealth operative: Sam Fisher. Tomorrow, a big update will drop for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, officially kicking off their Year 2 content, that will add a special PvE mission for you and your Ghost squad to tackle. While the mission will be available in the game for the foreseeable future, there are special rewards you can only earn if you complete it within the next month.Similar to the special Predator mission that popped up late last year, the new "Splinter Cell Special Challenge" mission will offer players that are able to successfully complete it some in-game goodies they can equip on their character. These include Sam Fisher's Night Vision Goggles, Proximity Mines (which are new), and Splinter Cell patch. As long as you complete the mission before March 10, you'll get those rewards/bragging rights. After that, you can still play the mission and listen to Michael Ironside's gruff intonations, but the rewards are off the table.

Latest Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Patch Makes Things A Bit Easier

At the end of last week, Fatshark released an update for their rat exterminator simulator, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, that addressed one of the bigger concerns: the sudden difficulty spikes. There are a number of tweaks and changes within Patch 1.0.5, but the big ones are to each of the main characters and the increased Hero Power cap for Veteran difficulty.The full patch notes can be found in the link below, but here are a few highlights:As I stated above, this is just a general summary of the changes made in the patch, and while the nitty-gritty details may seem like small things, the impact they can make in a game like this are pretty big. I really enjoy playing Vermintide 2, but the occasional difficulty spikes can sour the overall experience and turn me off for a bit. I'm looking forward to diving back in and seeing how things play out now post-patch.

Attack on Titan 2 Co-Op Review

Koei Tecmo’s first Attack on Titan game was a surprisingly great adaptation of the hit anime and manga series, with fast-paced and unique gameplay and better than average online co-op. Less than two years later, Attack on Titan 2 has arrived on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Steam. The sequel features another strong campaign and several new features, but its online co-op mode is less than titanic.
