A skilled fan has successfully reinstated offline co-op play to the PC version of Resident Evil Revelations 2, merely days after Capcom was forced to apologise for its removal.
Well-known Resident Evil modder FluffyQuack, who has worked on hacking many other titles in the survival horror franchise, debuted his latest patch today, with offline co-operative play now purportedly working throughout all of part one of Capcom’s latest episodic series.
The publisher was left red-faced earlier in the week when Resident Evil Relations 2 Episode 1 launched on Steam without the previously advertised feature, which is (officially, at least) a console exclusive. At the time, a spokesman said: “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.”
FluffyQuack’s unofficial modification will go some way to assuage discontent amongst PC fans of the series, although the modder did note that he still has some way to go, as Raid Mode local co-op isn’t currently working.
