Mixing up the usual multiplayer co-op formula is Hood: Outlaws and Legends, which is an interesting spin on the heist genre and basically a medieval Payday. Involving two teams of 4 players, you’ll compete to execute the perfect robbery in medieval environments patrolled by deadly AI guards. Each character has unique skills and abilities, so it’s up to you and your team whether you want to move in stealth to steal treasures or go in head-first for some loud and brutal combat.
Release date: 21 May 2021 (PS4 | Xbox One | Switch | PC)
If you’re tired of shooting your friends in the face, Knockout City will give you the chance to throw a ball into them instead. Essentially a suped-up dodgeball battle, Knockout City sees two teams going head-to-head to eliminate one another with trick shots and coordinated teamwork while dodging and catching balls flying across the map. A variety of outlandish ball types, locations, and game modes keep it exciting. Plus, each season introduces new maps, ball types, rewards, events, and challenges.
