Halo Infinite saw its first gameplay reveal today and with it came confirmation that the game will indeed have co-op play. And there was much rejoicing.Metro.co.uk reports that 343 Studios have given direct confirmation that there is planned online cooperative play through the Halo Infinite campaign as well as split-screen couch co-op play. On top of that there hasn't been a ton of new info regarding the game's co-op options other than Master Chief is the only playable character - much like the early Halo games in co-op.The reveal showed a few stark differences with Halo Infinite despite a promised return to the series roots. The biggest being an open world style section where players are given the freedom to explore area to area to uncover mysteries of one of the destroyed rings from the previous games - sorry, spoilers.

Risk Of Rain 2 Will Mark Its Official Release With A New Update

Can you believe it's been over a year since Risk of Rain 2 arrived on Steam's Early Access program?  My sense of time has fallen to absolute pieces lately, but it feels like the roguelike shooter first graced us with its presence only yesterday.  Nevertheless, it's pushed closer and closer to an official release in that time, with new content and numerous mechanical tweaks coming along the way.The game will hit 1.0 status on August 11th, and to mark such an exciting occasion, developer Hopoo Games will be pushing out a substantial new update giving the game a new survivor, some extra QoL additions, and (gasp) an actual ending.  Note that this new status will also bring a slight increase to the game's price point, moving it from $20 to $25.  If you're interested in playing post-release, you may want to go ahead and grab a copy or two before that happens.As decided by a community-wide vote, the new survivor will be brand new to the series and not pulled from the original Risk of Rain.  The Captain is their name, and using their orbital ship to call down support beacons is their game.  They'll also use a hybrid ranged weapon to charge shots and stun foes, but I couldn't find a good way to fit that into the rhyme.
