Following fan outrage over lack of local co-op support for the PC version of Resident Evil: Revelations 2, Capcom has now added it.
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 now officially supports split-screen local co-op in both campaign and raid mode. The update is currently in beta on Steam, but anyone can opt-in to try it.
Capcom said the option may not be 100% polished, but wanted to get it in the hands of PC gamers as soon as possible. Because of this, the UI does not yet reflect this new addition.
Here’s how you can activate it:
- Campaign Mode – simply press the START button on Player 2 game pad upon entering active gameplay. Ending the game or exiting to the main menu will automatically return to full screen single player mode
- Raid Mode – pressing the START button on Player 2 game pad in the Vestibule (the staging area) will activate split-screen mode. Select character, configure your loadout, and select Raid missions as normal. Exiting the Vestibule and backing out to the main menu will automatically end split-screen mode
- Alternatively, simply disconnecting the 2P controller will force the game back into full screen single player mode
Head to the official announcement to see how you can access the beta branch from Steam. Make sure you have two controllers that support XInput, if you want to try it.
You can also try this fan-made mod, if that’s your preference.
