Splinter Cell: Blacklist Cuts Split-Screen Co-op From PC Release

TGH writes - "coming directly from the community developer over at Ubisoft Montreal, we have confirmation that Splinter Cell: Blacklist will follow in the footsteps of Splinter Cell: Conviction – no split screen co-op!

At least not for the PC version, anyway." (PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Xbox 360)

Are you friggin' kidding me? After they said, "Uh, yeah. We want the PC version to be really good!" they go and cut split-screen co-op? What the hell, Ubisoft?

What games on PC actually have split-screen these days?

And the PC version is going to be good, it has a bunch of DirectX 11 effects and what not.

Resident evil 5 (mod)/6, Left4Dead 1 & 2(console command), Portal 2 (console command), Unreal Tournament 3 (console command), Serious Sam First Encounter, Second Encounter / 2 / 3, Kane and Lynch Dead Men, Terminator Salvation and tons of Local coop games (off the top of my head, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - FUN).

I play split-screen on Sonic All=Star Racing Transformed all the time.

Well, to be fair, I don't see PC as being a 'multiplayer gaming' system - multiplayer as in "2 on one console" - it's totally an online multiplayer one :P

Because, you know, plugging your computer into your TV to have co-op in DX11 makes no sense, right?

Are we STILL doing this crap? This is 2013? At what point are people going to get it into their heads that people plug their PCs into their TVs, stick some 360 controllers in the PC's USB ports, then sit down on the couch and play with friends? This isn't 1998. I mean, come on.

Btw, this wasn't at you directly.

via hdmi? Dat lag.

I'd say consoles are a LOT better for that sorta thing.

Well, obviously.
Buljo  +   425d ago
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?

I was hoping they'd keep it, not a lot of friends of mine can run modern games.

You can suck it Ubisoft.

And no PC gamer cared. Who plays split screen on their PC?

Are you saying pc games shouldn't have local co op? Why should local multiplayer games only exist only on consoles?
ifritAlkhemyst  +   425d ago
No. I'm saying most PC gamers play with friends via a network. In ye olde tymes, we got together for LAN parties. Now we just go online.

Obviously some games exist that support split-screen gaming. I just think it's too niche for someone to write an article about it as if it's removal was that big of an issue.
kingPoS  +   425d ago
Lan options seem to be dying too. It's like they rather you play online than offline. Dido with splitscreen.
Skate-AK  +   425d ago
I wonder what they did this. They did the same exact thing with Far Cry 3 multiplayer on PC.
MrTrololo  +   425d ago
Nobody wanted split screen on pc games anyway. They prefer playing it on online with other people.
