Outriders doesn’t have split-screen and local cooperative. Each player has their copy of the system and copies of the game to be able to play cooperatively. The game is fortunate enough to allow cross-play, allowing players to play with more flexibility. Also, PC gamers can play alongside PS5 owners, and the list goes on.
Split-screen and local co-op features are becoming less and less common particularly in complicated games such as Outriders. Although there aren’t any technical explanations given why the game isn’t able to support these features, it’s probably due to the lack of demand and processing power of consoles.
As we’ve observed, Outriders is well-optimized, however, it’s demanding enough that running it on a split-screen will likely have players accept lower frame rates or diminished graphical quality. A PC may be able to switch the local co-op feature, but this feature isn’t as common on this platform.
To participate in co-op players must matchmake via the internet. The LAN co-op feature is unfortunately, not yet available. Because of the many server issues that the game faced in its initial days, it’s been more challenging for players who might have been able to play the game offline locally. But, despite these problems this game received favorable reception and appears to be a huge success.
