How to play co-op in Redfall

Unlike some other co-op shooters, Redfall has more restrictions for its online play than you might expect. First is the lack of a matchmaking system, meaning that unless you have friends on either Xbox or PC playing, you won't be able to find partners to play with. If you've got a crew ready to go, here's how to get started.

Step 1: On the main menu, select Host Game.

Step 2: Navigate to your friends list and invite up to three people to join your lobby.

Step 3: Once everyone has joined, simply hit Ready to launch the game.

Step 4: If another friend is acting as the host, simply wait to be invited and accept it through the Game Invites menu.

Some important details to note about multiplayer are that only the host will maintain any story progress made. All other players will need to replay any story missions done in co-op that they haven't done already. What everyone will keep is any levels, weapons, or gear earedn during those sessions. Co-op also must be started in the main menu, meaning you can't join or invite players to a game in progress. If you want to partner up, you'll have to quit out and start a new lobby with your pals.

How to reach the Nameless Village in Dragon’s Dogma 2

One of the key missions to help prove you're the true Arisen in Dragon's Dogma 2 is to figure out the real identity of the false Sovran. One clue you have as to figuring this out is hidden in the Nameless Village, though not all is as it seems there. The first step will be, of course, reaching this unassuming little town. If you're running in circles trying to reach it, here are some better directions to get to the Nameless Village.
How to find the Nameless Village

Once you take this quest from Brant, a waypoint will be put on your map far to the east. Follow the general direction until you enter the zone where you need to start exploring to actually find it. If you follow the main road, you will find it blocked by a massive pile of boulders, forcing you to take a side path through the forest.

How long is Dragon’s Dogma 2?

Open-world RPGs can be anywhere from around a dozen hours long to well over 100. Dragon's Dogma 2 is very unique, even among others in the genre, for not adhering to a lot of traditional design philosophies, such as how it handles fast travel. If anything, that will only add to your total playtime, plus there are all the optional quests to do, Vocations to try out and level up, and more if you're a completionist. If you're wondering if you have the time to fit Dragon's Dogma 2 into your schedule among all the other games releasing, here's how long you can expect this adventure to last.
How long is Dragon's Dogma 2?

For the main quest, Dragon's Dogma 2 can probably be beaten in around 25 hours, give or take. That's assuming you mainline the story as efficiently as possible and don't get stuck on any boss fights being under-leveled. A more realistic playthrough where you explore a bit, do some side content, and maybe go for the true ending will push you into the 30 to 35-hour range, as it did for us.

How to get the glider in Rise of the Ronin

The expanded open world of Rise of the Ronin is so big that not even a trusty horse and fast travel systemare quite enough to make traversal as fun and fast as needed. While it might seem a little fantastical, you won't complain about the inclusion of a glider once you get your hands on it and feel how freeing it is to soar above the rooftops and countryside. This has been a heavily marketed mechanic, and yet you can miss your first chance to get it if you don't explore a little before moving on with the main quest. If you want your ronin to truly rise, make sure you check out how to get the glider here.
Where to get the glider

The glider can be found only after you complete the first "big" mission in Rise of the Ronin called "Curtain Falls, Curtain Rises." The end of this quest will have you slay the boss and engage in a short dialogue with them. No matter what you pick, you will get both the papers you need to cross into Yokohama and a key to a storage room. You're not shown where that room is or even need to go there to continue, but missing it will mean losing out on glider access.
