How to do Co-op in Code Vein

Code Vein has finally been released on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One. The game can be compared to titles like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, so fans of those will love Code Vein. Play side by side with your friends to take down enemies in this post-apocalyptic action RPG by Bandai Namco Entertainment.

How to do Co-op in Code Vein

Co-op in Code Vein requires utilizing an in-game mechanism called distress signals. While in game, simply navigate to the menu screen and send out a distress signal. You must wait for someone to answer it and this may take some time.

When someone answers your distress signal, they will enter your game. If you are the game host, you are responsible for starting the boss fights, and then they can hop in and help. If you drop an item, the other player cannot pick it up. However, they can pick up loot that bosses drop. Playing with other people increases the chances of finding more loot, so this is encouraged.

To join someone else’s game, you need to visit the menu to scan for distress signals. View the same menu you would look out to send out a signal. Any progress you make while in someone else’s game is not saved to your own world. If you defeat a boss in someone else’s world but have not defeated it in your own, you will still need to do so in your own game to progress.

Some parts of the game are not multiplayer compatible, and distress signals will immediately fail. You need to make sure you are in a multiplayer area before you send out the signals.
