Far Cry 4 Campaign Won’t Have Split-Screen Co-Op, Multiplayer a “Secret” for Now, According to Ubisoft
Interesting that they say competitive multiplayer is a secret, rather than denying it outright. Makes me think there will be some kind of PvP component, whether it is a separate mode entirely or featured as some part of the co-op portion.
Or horde mode.
it is all a secret!!
I just want to play as one of the elephants.
No online vehicles no deal this time did not play single player on Farcry 3 much, loved the single player on F2 though . I just played co op non stop on 3 every time I started single player there is too much to do back to co op.
I really wish they would put split screen into these games.
Far Cry 3 had split screen for its secondary co-op mode.
Why not bring that to Far Cry 4 then?
@ftwrthtx - It was a secondary mode, that was more directed and linear, not just part of the main open world. There may be logistical issues with bringing it to the main open world. Not sure why.
another one of the main console i always hear about continues to bite the dust.
So it has co-op AND multiplayer For goodness sake Ubisoft, one or the other. It pains me to see these great games and think how much more you could add to them if you weren't so bothered about social features. Co-op in a game like this makes more sense then boring old multiplayer. Ubisoft really need to cool down with this whole social online interaction thing in almost all their games.
I agree. I miss the good days of just chilling and playing couch co-op with your friends.
Same! Some of my best gaming memories are split-screen co-op sessions with my family and friends.
'secret' ie fear of losing pre orders!!
This game will not fail.
Far Cry 3 MP was Shiet. I don't want MP on FC games.
it was't that bad for being tacked on. IT really had a lot of potential. shame really. That awful killcam though OMGosh
Agree! Off topic: Naruto the talking is important I'm going to learn why Itachi did all those acts and still died like a Konoha Shinobi, Nee San!
Wtf I thought there was campaign co-op... Meh
There is co-op in the open world of the main game, but it disables the campaign missions. You can roam the open world and take down fortresses together though. Not split screen though. Online only.
Sigh...split screen gaming is dead unfortunately. ..more reasons to have a wiiU as a secondary I guess
I want some more split screen co-op games so I can play with bf or child or friend.miss these features now it has to be online when I usually want to play with someone in my living room talking face to face not on headset.
Maybe Far Crys multiplayer will be so good that it can compete with battlefield Call of Duty and Halo. I think Ubisoft can do it.
it really could. The potentials there. They just never touch the multiplayer ever again after launch.
Probably to much of a performance hit to to do split-screen locally.
They probably thought that double the screens meant double the work -- we know how Ubisoft hates work and fails math.
Would have loved couch co-op. It seems lacking in a generation more worried about 1080p 60fps... @beebap : I hear what your saying, though hopefully your not going to play Farcry 4 with a child :)
I just hope they have a great map editor for the competitive multiplayer. That's what made Far Cry multiplayer so great in the past.
