Resident Evil: Revelations 2 PC Version Lacks Offline Co-op
Neither campaign nor Raid Mode features offline co-op support on PC.
Capcom’s Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is currently out, the first episode at least, and delivers a new campaign with co-op support. The publisher clarified that offline co-op would be available for all platforms prior to release but it failed to specify the PC’s lack of the same.
As users on NeoGAF noticed on the Steam page for RE: Revelations 2, you’ll find the line, “Assistive co-op play – Players will need to switch between the two characters (Claire/Moira, Barry/Natalia) to overcome the nightmares in either single player mode with an AI partner or offline co-op.” Scroll a little further down and you’ll see that, “The PC version does not support offline co-op play in the Campaign or Raid Mode.”
Capcom had announced that online co-op for Raid Mode wouldn’t be active until all episodes were released but what about the complete lack of offline co-op for the PC version? That sounds like a feature it should have clarified before release. What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know below.
