What Is Local Co Op Multiplayer (2 Player) Mode?
Local 2 Player-Gameplay
The Local Co Op Multiplayer (2 Player) Mode allows 2 players to play on 1 devices with 1 only account needed. The 2 players will have to be close to the device for the co op to work.
Play With 1 Set Of Controller
The multiplayer mode is designed so that you do not need additional Controller sets to play! Simply split & spin your standard controller around for 2 people to use! You can link up another set of controller to use if you have a spare one.
What's Different in Multiplayer 2 Player Mode?
Play With A Split Screen On 1 Account
The Local Co Op Multiplayer (2 Player) Mode allows 2 players to play on 1 devices with 1 only account needed. The screen will be split allowing for easy 2-player game session to take on the story.
Cannot Use Runes & Elemental Rods
This applies when you split the controller for 2 player use. Runes & Rods may be available if an separate controller set is used byPlayer 2 for having access to the L, R button
Once you start in 2 players mode, you'll lose access to Runes that were available in Single players mode. This is to balance out the increased damage from another player on the field.Check out Beginner Tips here!
Cannot Use Elemental Rods
Players in multiplayer also can't rely on Elemental Rods to clear mobs. You'll need to watch each other's backs to get through mob swarms to win the fight!
No Character Swapping Mid-Fight
While some single player chapters will have more than 2 characters for you to cycle from, such is not the case for multiplayer - each player pick a character at the start of the chapter and the choice is final. No character swap can be made during the chapter.Chec out all Characters List here!
