Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will not feature an offline co-op mode

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 released just this week and has already disappointed PC gamers due to a missing offline co-op feature. Many buyers were eager to try out the new offline co-op mode, which was not included in the PC version of the game for some reason. Developers Capcom have made a huge mistake by failing to notify buyers about the change. Apparently, the PC version of the title does not include an offline co-op mode in either campaign or Raid mode, something which Capcom failed to mention. Here is the description of the game on Steam:

 “Assistive co-op play – Players will need to switch between the two characters (Claire/Moira, Barry/Natalia) to overcome the nightmares in either single player mode with an AI partner or offline co-op.”

After reading the exert, most people would (rightly) assume that the game will come with an offline co-op feature. But after buying the game, many complained that the PC version was missing this feature. The Resident Evil Steam page was only recently updated after the games launch to display the fact that the offline co-op mode was not an option:

“The PC version does not support offline co-op play in the Campaign or Raid Mode.”

Capcom should have announced this before the games launch, especially since many players were looking forward to trying out this feature. This has led to a string of negative reviews on Steam. Capcom has responded with the following explanation:

“The PC version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 supports a variety of customizable visual settings and resolutions. The decision to prioritize a single local screen was made to ensure a stable user experience across a variety of different PC settings and devices.”

This hasn’t really helped with the negative reviews, which keep coming in by the minute on the games Steam Page. Players are also not satisfied with Capcom’s explanation, which is understandable. This probably would not have been such a huge deal if Capcom simply mentioned the change before the games launch.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is available now for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms.
