Crazy Monkey Studios have announced a sequel to their side-scrolling-shoot-‘em-up Guns, Gore & Cannoli, launching first on Steam next month.
The sequel will feature a new weapon wheel, improved player mobility and full 360° aiming that lets you “easily shoot everything that moves”, and also sees online multiplayer introduced, something that was lacking from the original game, with up to four players supported.
Local multiplayer also returns, again with four players able to team up for co-operative action.
Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2 is out 2 March on Steam, with Xbox One, PS4 and Switch versions said to be arriving “in the coming months”.

Fe, from Swedish developer Zoink Games, is the first title to be released as part of the EA Originals program, bringing “unique and memorable” gaming experiences to players from a host of indie studios.
“In Fe, sounds connect every living thing in the diverse ecosystem,” said CEO and Creative Lead at Zoink Games, Klaus Lyngeled.
“The forest holds a multitude of secrets to be uncovered by connecting with the flora and fauna. As a wordless experience, the entire story is up for the players’ own interpretation as they move through the forest at their own pace. Fe is a beautiful, connected world that players will never want to leave.”
Fe is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Battle Martians, zombies and Vietcong with the Far Cry 5 season pass, also includes Far Cry 3 Classic Edition
Ubisoft have detailed the Far Cry 5 season pass, which will be available as part of the Gold Edition of the game or as a standalone purchase.
Set on the seemingly idyllic Rook Island, Far Cry 3 saw players step into the role of holiday maker Jason Brody as he tries to save his friends from the game’s deranged antagonist, Vaas.
The Classic Edition included in the season pass will only give console players access to the game’s single player content, while PC users get the entire Far Cry 3 experience.
A standalone version of Far Cry 3 Classic Edition will be released on Xbox One and PS4 this summer, though owners of Microsoft’s console can already play the original version after it was made backwards compatible on Xbox One last year.
Far Cry 5 is out 27 March on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Warhorse Studios and Deep Silver’s ambitious RPG, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, is almost upon us, and to build anticipation a new trailer has been released.
It’s a more cinematic approach than other recent videos looking at KCD, the last of which explored some key gameplay mechanics, such as combat, speech craft and stealth.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is out 13 February on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
What do you think of the latest trailer? Will you be exploring medieval Bohemia later this month? Let us know below.
THQ Nordic have revealed a This Is the Police sequel will be launching on PC and consoles in 2018.
It also sounds like players will have more of a direct influence over situations in This Is the Police 2, compared to the relatively hands-off approach taken by the original game.
From the press release:
“It won’t be enough just managing the equipment of your policemen and keeping in mind their individual skills. Every challenge requires the player’s direct participation, and the outcomes will depend on every decision you make. Now your subordinates aren’t just some resource; they are living people with their own strengths, weaknesses, fears and prejudices, and you'll have to reckon with all these things in order to survive.”
While there’s no specific release date just yet, THQ Nordic did confirm the game will be releasing later this year on Xbox One, Switch, PS4 and PC.

Warhorse Studios and Deep Silver have released another video looking at the core gameplay mechanics players will be getting to grips with in their medieval RPG, Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
Dressing the part is important in KCD not just for the protection increased layers and armour offer, but also for the influence you’ll be able to exert over the local inhabitants. For example, if you were to approach a villager while wearing expensive armour, they may mistake you for a Knight and treat Henry with more respect.
As well as auto saving during key moments, KCD allows players to save the game manually by drinking Saviour Schnapps. This drink will also give Henry extra courage, greater strength and endurance for a short period of time, though use it too often and he’ll start to feel the negative effects of alcohol.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is out 13 February on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Ubisoft have announced the release date for Assassin’s Creed Origins’ first piece of DLC, The Hidden Ones.
Preceding the arrival of the first major piece of DLC is a free mission called Incoming Threat, in which players must “head-off an incoming incursion and find where it’s coming from.”
The second major expansion coming to Origins, The Curse of the Pharaohs, is out 6 March and takes on a more mythological theme as players are tasked with investigating an ancient curse that’s plaguing Thebes and has brought the ancient kings back to life.
Once again, this DLC adds new content in the form of weapons and cosmetic items, and also increases the level cap to 55. Both expansions will be available to purchase separately or come as part of the game’s season pass.
Releasing between the two expansions is the previously revealed Discovery Tour mode, which allows players to explore and learn about Ancient Egypt at their leisure without having to worry about enemy attacks or completing mission objectives.
This educational mode launches 20 February as a free update for everyone who owns the game, but can also be purchased separately on PC via Uplay and Steam.
