If you weren’t aware, the Saints Row reboot has multiplayer co-op, just like the old games – and it’s great. This is going to let you experience Santo Ileso in a whole new way, with a friend who you can commit crimes and cause mayhem with. Sounds pretty good, right? Well, despite being a modern, realistic reboot, Volition has made sure to bring a few things from the past and the Saints Row co-op features are some of them.
Playing with your mates is great, and you can make so much more use of the various weapons and vehicles in the game than you can on your own. So, keep reading for the lowdown on this feature and what you need to know about multiplayer in Saints Row.
Saints Row Co-op multiplayer
When it comes to this game, you’ll be pleased to know that Saints Row has full co-op multiplayer support through the co-op campaign option. This means the entire game is playable in two-player co-op from start to finish. How great is that?
You can either start a new game in co-op or pick up a save from either your current campaign playthrough or your friend’s. Therefore you can hop in and out of co-op when you like with drop-in/drop-out support and the single-player and multiplayer modes aren’t split apart by two different save files.
In addition to that, Saints Row will support cross-gen co-op, meaning that players in the same console family can play with one another, no matter whether they own a PS4 or PS5, or an Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. You just can’t play across platforms, which is disappointing.
Saints Row Four-Player co-op
The Saints Row reboot does not have four-player multiplayer. Despite a number of games being released with this support since Saints Row 4, the only multiplayer offering in Saints Row is a two-player co-op mode.
You won’t be riding around with your crew committing crimes like in GTA Online here as there are no large-scale multiplayer options either.
That covers Saints Row’s co-op for the reboot. As you can see, it is a pretty fleshed-out suite of features that should keep people playing and allow for a lot of fun with friends.
