Untitled Goose Game’s co-op update takes flight

Unexpected indie hit Untitled Goose Game is now packing double the honks.

Developer House House launched a free update with a new co-op feature that lets a second player take control of another goose to wreak havoc in an idyllic countryside village.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new co-op mode:

How does Untitled Goose Game co-op work?

Untitled Goose Game now lets two players control two geese at the same time. It’s the same levels as before, but friends can now team up and work together.

The new goose looks a little different than the original. You can tell them apart because the new one has a basal knob, which is a pretty noticeable bump on the base of a bird’s bill.

The co-op mode is local only. However, on certain platforms — like Steam’s Remote Play Together or PlayStation 4 Share Play — it’s possible to play over the internet with a friend through streaming.

On the Nintendo Switch, two players can play at the same time using the right and left Joy-Cons. On a computer, one player can use a mouse and a keyboard, and the other player can use a non-keyboard controller.

Where can I play Untitled Goose Game?

The game is currently available for PC, Mac, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, and Itch.io.

There are two physical versions of the game available as well through Skybound Games and iam8bit.

Replaced is the Hellblade 2 of pixel art games
Key art for Replaced.

Replaced reminds of me a lot of Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, in a good way. The latter game, from Ninja Theory's, is a visual spectacle with extremely cinematic combat and gorgeous set pieces that I won't be forgetting anytime soon. While Hellblade 2 did that with Unreal Engine 5, Replaced is going to do the same with pixel art.

Replaced has had some amazing trailers across various gaming showcases over the past few years, so I was stoked to go hands-on with it at Summer Game Fest Play Days. Now that I have, I can't wait to see more from this adventure that might put even Square Enix's HD-2D RPGs to shame.

Avowed’s release date remains under wraps after the Xbox Games Showcase
A masked figure in Avowed.

The latest RPG from Obsidian Entertainment, Avowed, showed up at the Xbox Games Showcase with a new trailer but without a release date.

After a showing at the Developer Direct earlier in the year, Avowed hit the Xbox Games Showcase stage to show off a new trailer highlighting the story of the Living Lands, but not when players can expect to visit them. Your character is tasked by the Emperor to find the source of what is called the "Dream Scourge" and find a way to resolve it. Of course, things don't seem to be as black-and-white as that, and others believe there is another cause for what is happening on that remote island. Yet another voice tries to convince you both are deciding you. It will be up to you to decide whose side you take.
