No local co-op for Resident Evil Revelations 2 on PC

Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a pretty fun, episodic action horror game. It’s built around a co-operative campaign – and yes, while the survival aspect seems to have gone out of the window – makes for some good two player action. Only local co-op, one of the game’s defining features, has been left out of the PC version.

Capcom’s confirmed the omission, via a statement to IGN.

“The PC version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 supports a variety of customizable visual settings and resolutions. The decision to prioritize a single local screen was made to ensure a stable user experience across a variety of different PC settings and devices. Raid mode will support online co-op shortly after launch when a free patch is available for players to download which adds this feature, but the main campaign on PC will only be available to play in single local screen.”

That’s fine and well – and to be honest, kind of expected. Very many games that offer split-screen, local co-op lose the feature in their port to PC – but the thing that makes it a little annoying this time is that Capcom only informed consumers after the game had already been released, and people noticed the lack of local co-op.

Word of the yanked feature was missing from the game’s Steam page up until yesterday – leading many PC gamers to believe that the feature, present in all five of console versions – would be available on their superior platform. A little addendum, “The PC version does not support offline co-op play in the Campaign or in the Raid Mode” was bolted on to the page yesterday after a noise was made.

    Capcom is a bit backwards with this game. I know they did mention it before the release but why is there no online play for Raid mode. it’s only coming after the last episode…
    The game is fun, not survival horror fun but it’s more like Rev1 and still more action focused, but it’s a good game overall, from what I played of the first ep.

    On Left for Dead 1 and 2 on pc you can open up the console, type in a few commands and Split Screen! We used to do it all the time.
