With the official release of Baldur’s Gate 3 coming close, the updates about the full game are slowly coming out.
The latest community update comes with a lot of pleasant surprises, and split-screen co-op is one of them. The game will have split-screen co-op from its official release, according to their latest community post.
Baldur’s Gate 3 was already known to have online multiplayer for up to 4 people, but allowing split-screen co-op makes it much more convenient to play the game with your friends and family without the need to purchase the game separately.
Join With Your Friends Anytime During The Campaign
According to their community post, Baldur’s Gate 3 will allow players to join a party at any point in the game, which basically means that they will take over the characters in the current party of the host player, or they can mold their own character.
Specifically, it says Players can join a party before the start of a playthrough, during character creation, or an ongoing game.
This makes playing with your friends much less complicated as you can simply jump in any time of the story and enjoy the game without needing to restart the story (which is still an option).
Players in the same party will share the information gathered in-game, like Journal notes, mini map discoveries, and alchemy recipes.
They will also share their inventories but don’t worry, as you can lock your inventory in the multiplayer to stop those stealing friends that we all have from getting their hands on all the healing potions.
Players will also share inspiration points gained from fulfilling goals from their chosen backgrounds. Reroll checks on the dialogue with these points to get a better outcome.
Players can also listen in on conversations started by other players and vote on the dialogue options available. However, some scenes are private and can only be made public if the player decides to do it.
Screen-share co-op is always a great feature to have in a game, and fans of the game will definitely appreciate Larian Studios for adding it to Baldur’s Gate 3. Comment below and share how you feel about the game and whether you are excited about the screen-share co-op being available in the game.
