While Far Cry 3 featured missions that players can tackle online or via split-screen co-op, that won’t be the case with Far Cry 4 — at least its main campaign.
During our E3 preview of the shooter, the co-op mode was discussed and how it would open up new tactics when playing the game. At which time we asked Technical Director Cedric Decelle whether the campaign was going to have “couch co-op” or just be “online co-op”, to which he responded with “online co-op only”. Not content with that, we then asked about competitive multiplayer and whether it will be in the game or just co-op, to which Decelle said, “This is a secret for now.”
Keep in mind that there might be a chance that a split-screen co-op mode will be implemented since the game is still in development. With Far Cry 4 being open world, I gather having two players help each other out should be a fun experience — provided you’re both online, that is.
Should we still expect games nowadays to feature split-screen multiplayer or is that a thing of the past with online gaming now almost being a necessity with every title?
