You And Me Against The World: XCOM 2 Co-op Mod Out

Two-player co-op has arrived in XCOM 2 [official site] with the first beta release of a mod which hopes to one day support twelve-player co-op. Two seems a good number to start with, though. You have someone to bounce ideas off, someone for moral support and encouragement, someone to plan and scheme with, and someone to blame when snakes are choking out your champ.

Blight of the Immortals Cleaned Up And Put On Steam

The slow hordes of fantasy zombies from Blight of the Immortals [official site] were first spotted back in 2010. “Hmm, there’s some undead from a browser-based strategy on the horizon” we thought. “Spawned by the folks who made Neptune’s Pride, looks like. But that’s fine, they are very far away.” Six years later and the zombies on our doorstep. And by “doorstep” I mean Steam. The browser version has been out for yonks but has been heavily spruced up via Steam Greenlight over the past few months and was released yesterday. You can now indulge in time-hopping single-player or team up with friends for “the slowest real time game you’ve ever played”.

Cyborg Pals: Satellite Reign Launches Co-op Mode

A syndicate of one is no syndicate at all. It’s a small business at best. Something you run on the kitchen table. An Etsy store, maybe. No, if you want to be a syndicate – a megacorp – you really need cool killer cyborg pals. So huzzah! After a stretch in open beta, the Syndicate-inspired tactical cybersquad action of Satellite Reign [official site] is launching its four-player co-op. Four isn’t quite enough to be a syndicate but it’s perhaps enough to consider hiring a small office in an arcology.

Nuclear Throne Mod Adds Online Co-op

Online co-op multiplayer has arrived in Nuclear Throne [official site], Vlambeer’s John-pleasing rougelikelike shooter, thanks to an unofficial new mod. YellowAfterlife’s Nuclear Throne Together mod cleverly adds online multiplayer completely with Steam invitations and lobby lists, which is awfully impressive considering Vlambeer never shared source code – this is reverse-engineered. Now you and a pal can try to become kings of the nuclear wasteland together.

Thea: The Awakening Adds Co-op Multiplayer

Both Graham and Rob Zacny have been intrigued by Thea: The Awakening [official site]. Zacco explained it was “a survival 4X RPG roguelike with crafting and card combat” and Grammers is into that differentness. I’m not saying those two need help making friends, but I will point out that they could now play it together if they wanted. Developers MuHa Games yesterday launched an update adding two-player co-op. Oh, and Thea’s in the Steam summer sale too.

Play The Power Of Love With A Pal

The last few years have seen so many vibrant, roguelite dungeon crawlers land on our PC telly boxes that you’d be forgiven for shrugging off new arrivals. If they don’t bring something new to the figurative gun-running table, then they’d best do the textbook stuff right. And if they do bring something fresh, then it’d better be interesting. Like Rat King’s Power of Love [official site], which leans heavy on local co-op play and nifty joint-firing mechanics to see you and a chum through its fast-flying, paint-splattered chambers. Fancy the sound of that? A prototype is out now to try.

Homefront: The Revolution’s Co-op Maps Will All Be Free

Oh hey, Homefront: The Revolution [official site] has a co-operative multiplayer side too? I’d not really paid attention to that, but a media blitz today says yes, that is so. Sure, okay, cool. I’m already pretty interested in the open-world FPS because I like exploring and I like shooting faces so… sure, co-op too? Go for it!
