Zombie Vikings Is On Its Way To The Xbox One

Being a zombie doesn't seem like a gig with many perks.  You shamble around, moan, and lazily point at things for days on end for the chance to maybe, just maybe, munch on a brain or two.  Your teeth are the most important part of your job, and you don't even get dental!  Zombie Vikings, on the other hand, have it great.  They get to go on sweet road trips, hack up aggressive worms, and just generally pal around.  Sure, you have to have prior experience as a viking, but I can think of worse ways to spend a summer internship.Zombie Vikings was released to the masses in the fall of yesteryear on PlayStation 4 and PC, and the protagonists' fortunes have grown even further with the recent announcement of a forthcoming Xbox One port.  Soon enough, you and three friends will be able to traipse around Midgaard in front of the warm glow of Microsoft's premier console.  There's no specific release date just yet, but Klaus Lyngeled of Zoink Games, did share a few juicy details about the features of the Xbox One version.  Two free DLC player characters will accompany the game, and the developers are also packing in a making-of video and five extra versus levels.  On top of all that, Xbox One gamers can slice and dice their way through the Underworld as Raz from Psychonauts.

about X hours ago from

Warface has launched a brand new update for its game, with a huge piece of content called Operation Earth Shaker. The core of the content is focused around a five player co-op mission set in an underground secret lair in a volcano. Sadly, Dr. Evil is not present. There are new achievements, weapon skins, and more to unlock!Each of the five turret types poses a unique strategic threat that can only be neutralized with tactical teamwork. Alongside the turrets, enemy personnel wielding heavy duty weapons add another explosive element to contend with – ensuring players have to be at the top of their game to clear one secured area and move on to the next.Those who survive to see the base’s uppermost level will soon discover that they’ve stepped out of the frying pan and into the fire as they encounter a deadly new boss. This final layer of high-tech security proves Blackwood will stop at nothing to protect – and eventually detonate – the giant Seismic Activity Generator housed within the volcano.

Puzzle and Dragons Adds Multiplayer Dungeon Options

If you are over rank 150 in Puzzle and Dragons, you now have the option to tackle a dungeon with a friend that is at least rank 10. All you have to do is create a room under the Multiplayer Dungeons menu option and share that number with a friend or enter the room ID you have received.Once in the dungeon, both players will use the same board. Each turn lasts three minutes, any longer and the turn is forfeit. If you don't see any good moves, the option to pass is available once per dungeon. If one player abandons the game, it will switch to single player mode. The person that created the room has the ability to use magic stones and continue. As of right now, there are 22 dungeons to master.Not all players will have access to the multiplayer dungeons at this time. Those of you with an iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4th generation, or an Android phone with Android OS 4 or older are out of luck. If you do have a compatible device, the multiplayer option has already launched.

Considering 505 is the publisher behind Terraria, those comparisons are undoubtedly apt.Here's a breakdown of the game's main features, including mention of four player co-op throughout.
