Resident Evil Revelations 2's PC version caused a bit of a stink at launch. Plenty of players were excited to get involved with the game's much-vaunted splitscreen co-op, but were then disappointed to learn that Capcom lied and multiplayer was never on the table.
Thankfully, Capcom have now seen the error of their ways and are patching it in after all.
"Hello RE fans," reads a Steam update.
"Following Resident Evil Revelations 2 PC player feedback, we've got some new information to share. The development team has been exploring various options and we're in the process of creating a way for players to utilize a local co-op feature."
"Soon we plan to release a beta branch on Steam which will allow two players to play the Story and Raid modes locally via a split screen. We want to get this feature in the hands of our PC players as soon as possible, so this option may not be 100% polished when it is released. Feedback from those who try it out is welcomed. For anyone who isn't satisfied with this option, refunds are available through Steam."
"We'll have more specific news to share when the beta branch goes live, so please stay tuned."
Resident Evil Revelations 2 is off to a good start according to Brendan. "Both the Raid and Campaign modes are off to great starts, although the episode ends just as things are getting going," he wrote in our Resident Evil Revelations 2 episode 1 review. "As a new idea for the Resident Evil series though, I think the episodic feel could be a hit. I'm loving that each one is only a week apart too. Raid mode has eaten up my weekend, the unlocks are starting to come together and the mode will surely continue to grow with new content each week."
