And that's a shame, because it's still a fantastic co-op experience. It's the biggest game in the world. You and your friends can drop in and out of the generated levels at will, slaughtering thousands of demons together and generally not caring one whit about the overarching story. Where the previous game had a tight story with excellent corridor shooting and some incredible boss designs, the sequel adopted a Borderlands-style approach: Pulling off heists with friends is fun, especially given how cheap it is to get started these days.
Listen, Starbreeze is going through some tough times right now, with insider trading allegations, a CEO who apparently vanished off the face of the earth, and Overkill's The Walking Dead so disastrous that Robert Kirkman rescinded the Walking Dead license.
Vermintide II Warhammer: A lot of co-op games released in the past year.
A nerd dream come true. Party's over, everyone. What are you even doing? Pulling off heists with friends is fun, especially given how cheap it is to get started these days. Fortnite has an astronomical number of players, and propelled Twitch streamer Ninja to "Appeared in a Super Bowl commercial" levels of fame.
Point being, it's hard to recommend any of them. With friends, Rocket League is excellent. Far Cry is fun, but its awkward co-op system means quest progress only counts for the host.
