Resident Evil Revelations 2 Finally Gets Local Co-Op on PC Officially
Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 1 recently came out on all major platforms including PC. The console version of the game featured local co-op and same was expected from PC.
However, even though the game’s description on Steam suggested the inclusion of local co-op, Resident Evil Revelations 2 released without this feature on PC.
Now, Capcom finally decided to add local co-op and has released an open beta for this feature. Players will be able to play offline multiplayer with their friends in Campaign and Raid Mode.
We want to get this feature in the hands of our PC players as soon as possible, so this option may not be 100 per cent polished when it is released, feedback from those who try it out is welcomed. For anyone who isn’t satisfied with this option, refunds are available through Steam.
Originally, Capcom didn’t want to include this feature as the developers saw fit to prioritize one screen rather than two. That’s because PC gamers use a range different visual settings that could affect user experience.
We even saw a user created mod, that allowed players to have offline co-op in Revelations 2. I don’t think we’ll be needing that mod now, as the feature has been officially added.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 2 is scheduled for a March 4 release date on PC. If you don’t own the season pass ($24.99), you’ll get each episode for $5.99.
