Four-player shooter GTFO puts a heavy emphasis on the 'co-op' philosophy. In other words, it's not a game you can get far in without heavily relying on your teammates. That appears to still be true in the new rundown headed our way on June 11.

Rundowns, if you weren't aware, are a series of expeditions players can undertake in GTFO, and the new one, called "The Vessel," looks pretty gnarly.

We got a look at several minutes of gameplay from The Vessel during IGN's Summer of Games showcase today. The footage shows off swarms of monsters rushing the players as they creep through yet another darkened underground facility. There are also some sleeping monsters that you'll need to tiptoe past to avoid waking. I don't know why sleeping monsters are worse than swarming ones, but somehow they are. Have a look at the video below:

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
