Much like its predecessor, the three-player co-op mode is one of the highlights of Remnant 2. However, you can’t jump straight into the co-op mode as you need to unlock it first. Here is a step-by-step description of how to activate co-op play and invite others to join you on your adventure through the shooter Soulslike.
How to enable co-op play in Remnant 2
To activate remnant 2 co-op, you must complete the tutorial and the main scenario. After activating the World Stone in Ward 13, which is your home base, you can invite up to two friends to join your co-op session. Afterwards, a menu will display the worlds you can explore with the options ‘World Settings’ and ‘Join Game’.
Inviting friends to your co-op session
To invite your friends into your game world, head to the ‘System’ tab in the main menu and click on ‘Friends’. Here, you can personally invite your friends to join your co-op session. Just above that option, you’ll find ‘Game Session’, where you can choose between ‘Public’, ‘Friends Only’, and ‘Offline’ settings. This allows you to control who can join your session, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable co-op experience.
The ‘Join Game’ option grants you access to a randomly assigned coop game alongside fellow players. However, it does not offer direct means of communication with your friends. In case you find yourself facing a particularly challenging segment while playing solo, utilizing ‘Join Game’ within dungeons enables you to find assistance. As the host, you will receive notification when someone joins your game and, if necessary, they can revive you near the Checkpoint Stone. Enjoying co-op gameplay could lead to more shared discoveries like deciding whether to give Crimson King Coins or not
Remnant 2 is unique in terms of blending co-op shooter gameplay with Soulslike elements. It provides a refreshing experience, especially during intense boss battles and exploration, especially if you are having trouble approaching a certain section solo.
Additionally, remnant 2 co-op characters may keep the equipment and stuff they earn throughout co-op play sessions, allowing for several playthroughs with diverse loot and objectives.
