Three of the game's producers sat down for an interview to discuss some of the game's features and story information.
Well, that's a HerpaDerp move.
Agreed. What a fail.
That's an absolute shame. What a waste
Capcom has just earned a well-deserved face palm.
More like a slap to the face from the community.
Caocpm's guardian angel died from facepalming so hard.
Thank You, we need more couch interaction
I can't fault that but I can say what if my wingman moved to the US (from UK), And he was my partner for RE5, 6 and Operation Raccoon City?
Break up with her XD... jk, i know thats bad, but we still need to watch our friends more often to the eyes
I agree to an extent. Having online co-op wouldn't have to be at the expense of couch co-op. Why not have both? Really stupid move by Cashcom.
Good to see someone talking some sense, Revelations 1 not having local co-op on console was a damn shame, lately i've been getting quite sad seeing all the games that no longer include LOCAL multiplayer so this is definitely refreshing news for me.
Finally, a god send. Sick and tired I am of hearing online coop only, a breath of fresh to see offline again
Not everyone can get together with their friends at convenient times. Online is a godsend in this modern age, and it's a shame not to have it available(along with the local).
Agree, both is better
I miss to play games with my GF as i did with GoW Series, so, this is the main reason i would love to have more offline co op. both are better, but my wing man or wing woman will always be at my side so, im ok with only offline co op
Another bullshit from capcom , i wonder how many are there
Having Co-Op will probably be bad. Having Co-Op only offline is terrible! Who the hell makes this decisions? :|
How is everyone so upset? So few games have split screen co-op anymore, even though many people like to play games with real life friends. Pretty much every other game with co-op is online only, I don't see why this one being local is such an issue.
Why not offer both?
Fair question, perhaps limited resources for the spin-off series. If you have to pick, why not offline, which no one else is doing?
Why are people downvoting your suggestion of them offering both. That way everyone can be happy. We can't all live with our friends forever. :/
Lol at your disagrees. Anyone care to explain why couch co-op only is better than being able to choose between couch and online co-op?
I'm thankful for slipt screen co-op, but I don't see why they couldn't offer online too.
Probably economics, thats why they went with off-only. Both would have been great but ill take offline only
I love local co-op, but to make it local ONLY is an awful decision, it's like they want this game to fail, why not include both options?
Episodic for no good reason... now this
next they will be telling us there is no Raid Mode returning.. lol
why? Why would they remove Raid mode?
Because its Capcom. Logic is checked at the door...
it's like this producer likes to limit things for REvelations. Not that I care as I play it mainly for the campaign.
I rather keep it like that actually.
I love local coop, classic couch gaming. Sure online coop is awesome too, but any co-op be it local or online is always welcomed, period
Man all people do is bitching, if it's not bitching about having co-op they then bitch about only being offline co-op, god damn people how about you wait to see the game in action befre the bitching starts Either way this reminds me off Resident Evil 0 Zero with switching between 2 characters.
We can wait and see how the game is, but that doesn't change the fact that many of us won't be able to enjoy the game in co-op mode because we don't live with/near our friends. It's unfortunate, but who cares.
Oh golly gee a series that is not known as a co-op game won't let people play together, gee wilikers that is bad. Look man there are tons of other co-op games out there that you and your friend can play that are actually better suited as co-op experience not only that but this a good thing for you guys because Revelations 2 won't have you both fight zombies only one of you will and the ther will flash a flash light on them. @ Inception well there could very well be sequences like that in Revelations 2
"Either way this reminds me off Resident Evil 0 Zero with switching between 2 characters" Yeah looks like we can use both Claire and Moira and switch up between them just like Rebecca and Billy in RE Zero. Both Rebecca and Billy partner up the whole time. But there's some point when they need to split-up to solve puzzles or searching (key) items and we must use their unique ability. That's one of the reason why i loved RE Zero.
The Horror aspect of Resident Evil games is to keep you alone the whole game , not followed by a character in every chapter the whole story , why the offline Co-op in a single player game .. i have no idea why they did that since the community repeatedly mention to them to not include Co-op in story mode since Rev 1 , At least make the online co-op optional for those who wants it but not offline co-op O_o
Online co-op would be the better choice. Offline co-op is old trick. However, it would be fine if they offered them both in gameplay. :'-(
This game is sounding like another rushed cash grab just like how Revelations turned out on console.
I thought people complained about having co-op again.. like saying co-op takes out tension playing alone makes it more scary....
Yeah, but since you won't be alone either way (with an ai following your every step) adding the option for both online and offline co op would seems like making the best out of a bad situation, would it not? The way it is now is like a middle finger for those that, like me, didn't wanted co op at all and those that wanted it mainly because of online co op. It seems to me as if they (capcom) are alienating two big groups in order to favor a small one - or maybe they are cutting costs due to lack of confidence in their own product? Either way it looks like a poor business practice. In all honesty, I don't really care since I don't think RE should be played in co op anyways; I was actually hoping this Claire/Moira partnership was more akin to Joel/Ellie's: something made it for story's sake that wouldn't affect the enemy encounter too much.
No problem for me. I'm happy to play this with my bro. But for the 1st playthrough i will play it alone. Anyway, if i can switch between Claire and Moira just like Rebecca and Billy in RE Zero than it would be awesome. One thing that i loved from RE Zero is Rebecca & Billy got their own ability and swapping between them to solve puzzle, mixing herb, getting (key) items on higher place, etc are fun.
Lol offline only what is this 1990 lol unbelievable I'll pass on this game!!
sounds like they have been hanging out with nintendo too long
People care for online Multilayer now on RE?
Thankyou Capcom. Fed up with online co op only, I love couch co op with my other half when little ones in bed, but its been a while.
Should have had both, or nothing at all.
Thanks capcom keep that local multiplayer in there.
actually this is a good thing if its offline only it means the co-op won't take priority over single player which is what I care about......
Hey capcom.....all I want is the original 2 resident evil outbreak onlines games done in HD for the ps4/Xbox one. So simple!!!
well that´s surprising i gotta say...not pleased with this decision but if the game´s good enough ill buy it at full price! btw the merchant from RE4 will ever return?
I don't have a couch co-op partner!!! They all got jobs and classes just like me. Oh well, single player only for me.
Back in my day we complained about every resident evil that had multiplayer.
Capcom always does something stupid to hurt their own games not including both forms of coop for an obviously 2 player game the reverse off dead space 3 sigh...
Why to have co op at all, then? The game would probably be better without it anyway.
