Prepare to Die in 4K This May in Dark Souls: Remastered

about X hours ago from

This seemed like an inevitability. Today, Bandai Namco announced that the popular third-person action RPG, Dark Souls, would be enjoying a new release this year as Dark Souls: Remastered. Not only will players be able to discover the mysteries of Lordran once more in high-definition and 4K resolution (for compatible systems), but you'll also be able to enjoy jolly cooperation with even more friends.Based on the announcement from Bandai Namco, it sounds like the online player count will be increased for Dark Souls: Remastered from three (plus one invader) to six (with who knows how many invaders). This means you and up to five of your friends can team up to take on the Capra Demon, Bell Gargoyles, and Ornstein and Smough. In addition to the base game, the remastered version will also include the "Artorias of the Abyss" DLC.Dark Souls: Remastered will come out on May 25, 2018 for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game will run in 4K resolution on the PC, PlayStation 4 Pro, and Xbox One X, provided you've got all the necessary hardware (i.e., TV/monitor) to enjoy that output. We're currently awaiting confirmation from the publisher to ensure that the number of online co-op players is right, and will update our story if we hear anything different.

Mutant Football League Arrives on PS4 and Xbox One This Month

Last Fall, Mutant Football League made its way onto the PC so that once again players everywhere could main, mutilate, and massacre their opponents while also kind of playing American football. The original Mutant League Football, though, was a Sega Genesis title so while it was heartening to see the spiritual successor get made and released, many were hoping it would find its way onto the current gen consoles. Well, if you can wait just one more week, your wish will be granted.The 7v7 arcade sports title will get an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release on Friday, January 19, 2018. Much like the PC version, four player local co-op will be supported in the Arcade, Season, and Playoff modes. Each player will play together on the same team against a team controlled by the A.I. One player will be the quarterback and call the plays while the remaining players will each assume a different position on the team, such as running back, safety, wide receiver, or center guard.Mutant Football League is currently available on PC via Steam for $24.99. The game is also available on the Xbox One as part of the "Game Preview Program" for $24.99, and it's probably safe to assume it'll remain at that price once it's fully released.

Human: Fall Flat Gets More Co-Op

2017 was a busy year for No Brakes Human: Fall Flat. Back  at the start of the year the game came to consoles (Xbox, PS4) and was soon followed by a Switch release. Available now before the year completely ramps up speed, Human: Fall Flat has another trick up its sleeve; Co-Op landing on Nintendo Switch as a free update. According to a press release, this update will allow 2 players to use a Joy-Con each, 2 Joy-Cons per person or a Nintendo Switch Pro controller for the local Co-Op.Since the update has gone live, the game should update players automatically. However if a player wants to update manually, they simply have to navigate to the Software Update screen and do so from there.We reviewed Human: Fall Flat before it made its way to Switch, giving it a 4/5 for both Co-Op and the game itself, saying that “Even if you fail, you're gonna have a great time doing it.” praising both the Co-Op and the simplicity of the game as a sandbox like playground.

Human: Fall Flat Adds Options for Local Co-Op on the Switch

2017 was a busy year for No Brakes' Human: Fall Flat. Back in May, the game came to consoles (Xbox, PS4) and a Switch release followed a few months later. Before the year came to an end, though, No Brakes had one last trick up their sleeve: local co-op using just two Joy-Cons instead of a pair of Joy-Cons per player.Prior to the update, local co-op on the Switch version required each player to have their own controller; meaning one person had to use a Pro Controller while the other used the two Joy-Cons that came with the system, or both players would need a pair of Joy-Cons. Since the update went live last month, the game should update automatically. However, if you want to update manually, simply navigate to the Software Update screen and do so from there.We reviewed Human: Fall Flat before it made its way to Switch, giving it a 4/5 for both Co-Op and the game itself, saying that “Even if you fail, you're gonna have a great time doing it.” praising both the Co-Op and the simplicity of the game as a sandbox like playground.

about X hours ago from

One of our anticipated co-op titles this year, Monster Hunter: World, arrives on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this month (January 26, to be precise). The title is also getting a PC release, but Capcom hasn't said much about when that version might make its debut. Until now...Ryozo Tsujimoto, the game's producer, posted a video to the official Monster Hunter: World YouTube channel yesterday with a release window for the PC version. Unfortunately, it won't be out until sometime "Autumn 2018." That means folks who are waiting to enjoy the first "next-gen" Monster Hunter title on their suped-up computer will have to wait a while longer.Monster Hunter: World will launch worldwide on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26. It will support four player online co-op.

Return Once More to Old Tristram in Diablo 3

Blizzard kicked off 2017 by letting players return once more to the world of the original Diablo with the "Darkening of Tristram" event in Diablo 3. They promised that it would return and, sure enough, the cultists have already appeared and the portal will open this evening.Starting around 7:00 PM EST tonight on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of Diablo 3, you'll be able to enter the portal that will take you back to the pixelated days of Diablo. Battle you way through 16 floors of the original Tristram cathedral, fight the Butcher, and bring down Diablo. If you do all that using a new, level one character, then you'll be able to get some sweet loot in the form of a Butcher pet. Of course, if you participated in the event last year, there may not be quite as many new things this time around, but it does look like there might be a different banner reward and transmogrification recipes.The event is available until the end of the month, January 30, so you've got plenty of time to hop in and play before Old Tristram fades once more into the mists of time...
