Sometimes you need a hand to hold, so we ve compiled a list of the 25 best co-op games to play on PC with a headset-wearing friend or a muted stranger.

Whether solving puzzles, sneaking, shooting zombies or stabbing mythical creatures in the face, the existence of another player adds an element of unpredictability. The reality of your co-op partner constantly alerting the guards is drowned out by the experience in your head – the synchronised stealth takedowns, the perfectly executed plan – but both success and failure are more compelling when you can take credit for the former and blame someone else for the latter.

There is a co-op game for every duo and our selection includes a variety of the most bestest. Don t worry if your favourite co-op game doesn t feature – it just means you re wrong. All mortals are, on occasion. … [visit site to read more]

Before it became a stealth series powerhouse, Ubisoft's renowned Splinter Cell franchise had a lot of trouble getting off the ground. It got so bad that at one point the then-fledgling developer even pitched the original game as a James Bond title.

Splinter Cell Movie Is Happening, Tom Hardy Starring as Sam Fisher Assassin's Creed isn't the only movie that Ubisoft wants to get to the silver screen as soon as possible.


Rumors from earlier this year that Ubisoft was looking at making a Splinter Cell movie appear to have been well-founded, according to Variety. And what's more, the movie's got a star.


British actor Tom Hardy is reportedly on board to star as Sam Fisher, operative extraordinaire. Hardy most recently took to the silver screen as masked villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises earlier this year. He also featured in Inception, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and the sadly disappointing Star Trek: Nemesis.


The Splinter Cell game franchise dates back to 2002. The last was 2010's Conviction; the next is 2013's Blacklist.

Sam Fisher is sneaking into the world of comics. Splinter Cell: Echoes is an upcoming graphic novel written by Nathan Edmondson and illustrated by Marc Laming that promises to bridge the gap between Splinter Cell: Conviction and Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Perhaps the comic can also explain how Fisher is inexplicably getting younger in every iteration--and why his voice has changed so much?

Speaking to IGN, Edmonson says that while there will be "fan-service," the comic has been adapted in a way to be approachable to non-gamers as well. "We treat the characters and story in the same way we would if this was our original creation," he said.

ghost recon khyber strike dlc launch


The Khyber Strike DLC for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier has now launched, bringing with it several new maps, a new game mode, new achievements, a 10 point raise to the level-cap and a new trailer to show these very things off.

The new maps are: Switchback, a close-quarters deathtrap of twisting alleys; Palace, a palace; and Transit, a Moscow metro station with hazardously mobile trains. Meanwhile there's an additional sniper-friendly map for the Guerrilla game mode, called Village, plus Takeover, a game mode in which your regular kills are multiplied by territorial possession.



I was quite keen on Future Soldier. It's not really a return to the hardcore Tom Clancy tactics of yore, back when the games were about crawling on your belly through a half-mile of grass texture before finding a bullet in your skull. But despite the turret sections and slow-motion explosions that seem to have infested the series, Future Soldier also introduces a neat Full Spectrum Warrior-style sightline puzzle, as you orchestrate synchronised takedowns with other members of your squad. And the multiplayer isn't too shabby either.
