Titan Quest Gets Couch Co-op on Consoles

Titan Quest was released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One earlier this year, the classic titles first appearance on home consoles. Today, the game received a huge update which, along with fixes for some of the game’s issues, adds split screen couch co-op for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.

The new mode will now allow fans to play the game together on a single television, apart from the 6-player online co-op multiplayer. The update announcement hasn’t made clear how many players will be able to join a couch co-op session or if those who play using the couch co-op mode will be able to join online multiplayer sessions to form a group of up to six people.

Couch co-op sounds like an appropriate addition to the game’s console version. Other, similar titles have also featured a split-screen co-op mode, such as Diablo 3, which helped the games become more accessible and enjoyable on console.
