PC Modder Aiming To Fix Resident Evil Revelations 2 Co-Op


For those who are unaware, the PC version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 was initially supposed to carry local co-op support. It was then removed just in time for the game to actually release, but not before it likely received consumers’ money through pre-orders. Capcom may be working on a fix, but the public relations damage has already been done. Eurogamer is reporting that someone within the game’s community has released a modification, bringing limited local co-op play in a manner that a company of over 2,600 employees could not manage.

You can pick up the mod for yourself right here. As it is non-specific to Resident Evil Revelations 2, it’s not a perfect fix. Right now, the mod only supports gamepads, as “keyboard controls affect both players.” Additionally, local co-op support is limited to the main episodic adventure, as it does not work right now with the Raid mode. Still, in the game’s very early going (just one of four episodes have been released) there is still time to make sure the mod fully supports local co-op play even before the full retail version is released.

As great as the “Fluffy Manager 5000” mod is for affected Resident Evil Revelations 2 PC players, it doesn’t help to correct the issues with Capcom at hand. Promising features for a title, allowing pre-orders, then removing gameplay features just as Episode 1 is released is a terrible, and possibly corrupt, attitude to carry. Not only is possible false advertising a serious legal issue within the tech industry at large, but nothing has been done by Capcom to make it right to the consumer yet.

We’re 4 days out from the first episode’s release, with the issue being at least 3 days old. When you have piecemeal mods providing better support for the fans of Resident Evil Revelations 2 than the game’s developers themselves, it’s not a good look. We will be on the lookout for any official statements from Capcom on this matter in the future.
