Nothing has been revealed yet but many games these days don't have Local Multiplayer, the only new racing game I can think of that has it is Forza Motorsport. However, it seems that Ghost and EA are doing a good job at listening to players so if its something a lot of people want, they might consider adding it into the game if it isn't already. I would definitely love to have local just because it's fun to be able to play a game with someone right next to you.
I don't see why they would get away from this at all. Its the 21st century. Its like in the past few games they have been taking steps back. Last one I bought was HP.
That is exactly why they dont have Split screen in NFS anymore, because we have much better internet connection these days. Plus it is much more work adding split screen too a game with a big open world, it was much easier for them in past when they had closed tracks. So it hink that is the biggest reason why they dont have split screen these days. The biggest advice i can give is invite a friend too a private co-op session, then you guys can play it as you would if your buddys where at your place. Or you could find games that still ues splitt screen, etc Gran Turismo Forza Lego Undercover, Driver San Fransico just too name a few.
He did not ask about split screens. He asked about Co-Op. I also do not like playing with a bunch of random people. But I would love to play with a Friend so a Private Co-Op is perfect.
