Capcom fell into one of the potential pitfalls of having different features on different platforms this week when it released Resident Evil Revelations 2 across three PlayStations, two Xboxes, and PCs: The dreaded PR mix-up.
While the console versions of the game sport local cooperative modes, the PC version, for whatever reason, does not.
Capcom neglected to mention this omission on the game’s product page on Steam, however, leaving some fans surprised when it wasn’t present.
We apologize to our Resident Evil Revelations 2 PC players who purchased the game and expected to have local co-op as a feature. The feature wasn’t intended for this version and that caveat was mistakenly omitted from the product description on the Steam page earlier, and then included as soon as we were made aware. This was an unintentional error and again, we apologize for the confusion this may have caused.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 is set to get online coop for its Raid mode when the game completes its multi-episode run, but there is currently no offline cooperative play planned for either the Raid or campaign modes. Capcom wrote in the statement that they are looking into potential solutions. Whether that means adding the cooperative play in or simply offering refunds for disappointed consumers, we hope to hear something soon.
