about X hours ago from

EXOR Studios' twin-stick shooter/tower defense hybrid, X-Morph: Defense, will be getting some new content, both paid and free, next month. The "European Assault" DLC will arrive on March 26 for the PC version (then PS4 and Xbox One shortly thereafter) and will add a new mini-campaign that takes players through Finland, Holland, and France. Alongside that paid content, there will be a free update on all platforms that adds a new Survival mode.The mini-campaign that you'll get with the "European Assault" paid DLC is described as taking place "parallel to the main story, and will see players wreak havoc across Finland and Holland before concluding in an epic, destruction-fuelled showdown at the Eiffel Tower in France." This DLC will be available first on the PC starting on March 26, and will then be made available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime after that.

We Were Here Too Stream Recap

about X hours ago from

Nick and Jason don their parkas and thinking caps as they attempt to tackle a series of puzzles in We Were Here Too. It was all fun and games until the stairs dropped Jason into some lava, the walls attempted to crush Nick, and we saw a mysterious shadow.This game is like an escape room on steroids. Players journey through a castle, solving puzzles along the way. The catch is that you and your co-op partner are in separate rooms and have to communicate what they see and they can interact with in order to solve the puzzles. Sometimes, speed is of the essence as there are also some devious traps that will kill one or both of the players. Other times, a mysterious shadow suddenly appears and freaks you right out.One of the things I'd like to see VR do when it comes to playing with the "co-op experience" is to provide players with different pieces of information that they have to work with or relate back to others. This would work extremely well, for instance, in something like a horror game where your co-op partner starts freaking out over something you don't see (or vice versa). We Were Here Too does a pretty good job at working with this idea and making something that is not only very cooperative, but a lot of fun and genuinely surprising at times.

Burnout Paradise Remastered Announced, Coming Soon

about X hours ago from

EA announced today that it will be bringing Burnout Paradise Remastered to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next month on March 16. The "smash" hit of 2008 will be getting a graphical overhaul to display at 1080p on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will run in 4k at 60 FPS on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. It will also include all DLC that was released for the game during its initial run, so you'll be able to tear up the streets in your "Back to the Future" Delorian.One thing to note in all this is that the player count seems to have dropped from 8 to 4. On the game's website, there's this little note about halfway down:It's interesting that while they updated all the graphics, they ended up decreasing the number of players supported in the game's online modes. Possibly this was done to maintain that 60 FPS fidelity. It's also worth noting that there's mention of being able to play "offline," though it's not clear whether that means couch co-op or LAN play. We'll update the story and our DB page once we learn/hear more.

Bandai Namco's CODE VEIN Gets Online Co-Op Functionality

about X hours ago from

Sure, Bandai Nacmo is bringing a remastered version of Dark Souls to consoles and PC this Spring, but that doesn't mean they can't also bring their own take on it to those platforms. The developer announced earlier this week that CODE VEIN, an action RPG that's designed by the same team that worked on the GOD EATER series, will support online co-op for two people when it launches sometime this year.The game was first announced last April and was shown off with the player character running around with an A.I. companion. Given the clear Dark Souls influence, which was also stated in the title's marketing materials, it seemed likely that co-op would be coming at some point, but there have been other Dark Souls-type games without any form of co-op, so it was anybody's guess. Based on what's been said thus far, it appears co-op will be limited to just one other person that you'll be able to team up with, and it's not entirely clear how you do that. The announcement stated that the game will "gives players the chance to answer requests for help from other[s]" in order to clear out difficult areas/bosses, and that the A.I. companion would remain with you. We'll likely learn more over the next several months leading up to the game's release.

Humanoid rats beware, there's about to be a new extermination simulator in town, and this time, it ain't content to just fend off your ravenous hordes.  Yes sir, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will also be stickin' it to Ye Olde Chaos Warriors, who are decidedly bigger and less cowardly than their ratkin compatriots.It won't be long before you and three online friends can return to the Old World to take on the harbingers of apocalypse on PC.  So, while you wait for March 8th to roll around, why not watch the latest gameplay video to get a feel for what it's like to fight a Bile Troll?It looks pretty fantastic so far, and having played a few missions of the Beta, I can tell you the sequel maintains that gritty, tooth-and-nail gameplay of the original.  In case you're just dying to get some melee combat in before Vermintide 2's release, Fatshark just dropped some a small batch of content for its predecessor.  Titled "Waylaid", the free DLC is meant to bridge the gap between the two games.
