Star Wars Battlefront II is a friend to those who enjoy multiplayer sessions from the sanctity of a comfortable couch. As confirmed by Xbox Wire, the console versions of the game, both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, will support split-screen multiplayer for simple plug-and-play fun.
However, this option will not be available on the PC version, and online multiplayer will be the only way to play with friends. EA decided to ax split-screen support from the previous game’s PC version as well back in 2015.
And exclusive to the console version of Star Wars Battlefront II will be two-player offline split-screen co-op. Get ready to team up with your friends from the comfort of your couch as the two of you battle across the Star Wars universe. In this mode, you’ll be able to earn customization rewards and bring those upgrades with you to the online multiplayer battleground.
No gaming alongside your friends on a PC
It’s not entirely unexpected. The PC is rarely the place to turn to for quick and easy multiplayer fun, and most gamers opt to use it exclusively for online multiplayer games. Some publishers have opted to turn around and include split-screen in some cases after fan backlash, but I would not expect that to happen here.
Star Wars Battlefront II will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on Nov. 17.
