I'm looking forward to playing this in splitscreen and VR. I wonder if you can do both, as in one person using VR while the other person plays on your TV/Monitor.

Sorry what do you mean? In terms of couch coop or in general?

split screen? The game has some major issues with framerate, split screen is the last thing you want to be offering at this time..

I was thinking the same thing. Seems a bit unnecessary anyway. Just focus on optimizing and adding the elements of the PC version in slowly.

Yeah this is a bit of an unfortunate time to announce this taking into consideration all of the reported issues w/ the base game. It makes me wonder though, would the resources required to run split screen be similar to the resources required to run VR? Both systems are essentially rendering the game twice I assume. It'd be cool if the VR development has an unintended consequence of allowing for the resurgence of couch co op. Games that develop w/ VR in mind but plans of a traditional title as well may essentially be able to create a couch co op experience since the targets may be similar?

If this game gets splitscreener in the state it is (frame rate wise) then every other developer has 0 excuse now to not have split screen in their game if the fans want it.
