Re: DARKSIDERS GENESIS: Xbox One/PS4/Switch

Apparently it has split screen couch co-op, which seems like an odd choice. Why not share the same screen?

Genesis can be played online, with one player controlling War and the other Strife. Thatís how we played it when we visited Airship Syndicateís studio in Texas, but split-screen will also be on option, with each character getting their own half of the screen.

Strife and War have specific, defined roles when working together. Strife is good at staying back and picking off enemies with his guns, but War is the brawler who is good at clearing swarms, as as he has wide attacks that can manage groups. Co-op wonít be drop-in/drop-out, but you will be able to change the team dynamic and even switch to playing alone at assorted checkpoints throughout each level.

When playing co-op, you will encounter puzzles that require coordination. Playing an early level, I had to work with Steve Maduiera (he controlled Strife and I played as War) to pull a pair of levers simultaneously in order to open a door. Airship says later puzzles will be more complicated and require items that you acquire over the course of the game.
