Genesis A.D gets Viper Valley co-op play; Alliance of Valiant Arms gets new sniper-only Rotterdam map.

It might be cold outside but is heating things up. Just in time for the holiday, Genesis A.D , the new sci-fi online multiplayer first person shooter currently in open beta testing, takes players out of this world in its first co-op mode with the Viper Valley update. Players face an intense three-player challenge on an unforgiving alien world. Not to be outdone, Alliance of Valiant Arms ( A.V.A), is set to receive new content, including a sniper-only map based in Rotterdam, Netherlands and Christmas-themed items.

Genesis A.D gives gamers plenty of reasons to stay out of the snow with the Viper Valley update, which is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 23. The Viper Valley mission pits teams of three Genesis A.D players against a horde of ferocious creatures in a fight for survival on a hostile alien planet in the game’s first co-op mode. Players must work together and battle increasingly difficult enemies on this challenging mission where the most skilled players will reap huge rewards in experience points and in-game currency.

Beginning Wednesday, Dec. 22, A.V.A fans can test their sniping skills in a new map based on real locations in Rotterdam, Netherlands. In addition to the map, players will have access to new items, including:

Explosive Weapons: Players can take out enemies both near and far with the Saiga12 shotgun, available in the Normal Weapons Shop, or the Walther Wa-2000 sniper rifle, which will be available via a Pre-Release Capsule

Christmas Items: Players can get into the holiday spirit by donning Rudolph-themed gloves and a new helmet decorated with animated Christmas lights
