Diablo 4 Split Screen Couch Co-Op Not Working
Can you play Diablo 4 beta in split-screen couch co-op? After more than a decade since Diablo III, Diablo fans will finally get a chance to play the next iteration of the iconic action RPG series. Sorry, Diablo Immortal, you don’t count! And while playing solo is a preferable method for many, it’s much more fun to play with friends! In this guide, we answer the question – can you play Diablo 4 beta in split-screen on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One?
Diablo 4 Beta Couch Co-Op Not Working
Update: Blizzard has informed players that during the co-op in the open beta, Player 2 “may experience issues joining games with a pre-existing hero while playing couch co-op during the Prologue”. At the time of writing, there are numerous reports that players are unable to invite friends, join a party and other issues. We will update the article once we have more details.
Does Diablo 4 Beta Has Split Screen Couch Co-Op
Let’s start right off the bat with the good news! Yes, Blizzard has confirmed that Diablo 4 will feature support both for online co-op and split-screen couch co-op. And not only that this feature will be available in the full release, but you will also be able to play co-op during the early access and beta weekends as well! The co-op mode in Diablo 4 supports up to four players in one party from any platform, as Diablo IV is fully cross-platform ready.
When it comes to split-screen couch co-op, Diablo 4 offers a 2-player split-screen experience. We think this is perfectly reasonable, as it will be impractical with more players. Diablo 4 couch co-op is supported on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. However, there is no split-screen support on the PC. “To play using couch co-op during the Early Access weekend, only one player will be required to have official access,” says the official post. “The second player will need to have their Battle.net and console-specific accounts linked.”
This means that if you have early access to the Diablo 4 beta, it’s enough for you and your friend to play together via couch co-op. Your friends don’t need to have early access. Furthermore, the progress in the campaign is always syncing up with the party leader. Finally, there’s even an option to play 4-play online co-op with two players being in split-screen locally! When it comes to the co-op rewards, as Blizzard states: “Vanquishing demons while near any player will grant you 5% bonus experience and 10% if you are near a member of your party”.
Looks like couch coop dosent work right now, you can sign in on an other controler but other than that… nothing happens…
Agreed, been trying without success for some time now.
