Bright Memory: Infinite Multiplayer: Is there co-op and PvP?

The new FPS Bright Memory: Infinite is due for release on Xbox Series X|S later this year, but several details about the game are still up in the air. The hack-and-slash expansion to 2019’s Bright Memory introduces a new story mode and revamped graphics. However, fans are still unsure how the game’s multiplayer component will work.

Does Bright Memory: Infinite have co-op multiplayer?

At the moment, it seems like Bright Memory: Infinite doesn’t contain co-op multiplayer. The original Bright Memory was a single-player only experience, and developer FYQD-Studio hasn’t suggested that Infinite will change that.

Rather than a multiplayer, Bright Memory: Infinite is an entirely story-based experience. It takes place in the Land of the Sky, a floating base above the Arctic. Players control Sheila, a worker aboard the base, as she tries to stop the ominous SAI organization from stealing technology that allows them to bring back the dead. A plot as focused as this, with only one protagonist, doesn’t leave much space for a multiplayer component.

As with co-op multiplayer, Bright Memory: Infinite won’t have PvP multiplayer. With the expansion due for release in late 2021, it certainly seems like FYQD-Studio doesn’t have multiplayer in the works.

However, this isn’t to say that there won’t ever be multiplayer in Bright Memory: Infinite. The game has an episodic structure, and so far only Episode 1 is out. That’s what the infinite expansion will contain, and FYQD-Studio has confirmed a second episode will release in the future. If the infinite re-release is a success, and there’s enough demand for it, don’t be surprised if later episodes in Bright Memory: Infinite do contain multiplayer.

In other news, a new update for Dark Alliance allows you to switch off the painful camera shake. Sonic the Hedgehog is also in the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 game, but not quite as you’d expect.
