Switch: Local co-op? Local play?


Recommended Posts

So the switch version is finally coming out (YAY!) and it's coming out the day before I get on a plane.

Will the game have:

- Split screen

- Local network play? Like animal crossing & mario kart, so my wife can join in on a local game?

- Local gameplay, so I can play whilst on a plane ie. no need for an internet connection

 

Regardless of any of these answers, I look forward to playing it on the Switch!

Bit sad to hear about cross-platform saves too, that it isn't in, but I suspect that'd only be possible for an always-online gameplay mode anyway, for synchronising etc.

Not at launch.  This is still being worked on.

Hey prostheus,

There won't be any local multiplayer functionality at launch - you will need to join other online Switch friends for multiplayer. We're working on split-screen, but we need more time to clean up that feature before we add it to DDA. 

You should be able to play on Switch without internet connection. (If at launch something seems off with that, please let us know.)

We're really excited to show off our hard work on Switch!! Thanks for all the support.

 @ [CG] Brittani Is there an eta for split screen (on Xbox)?  Thank you

That's great to hear!  I really hope I can download it in time for my plane flight, as that is on 5 August!  I'm in Australia though, so not sure exactly when/how to get the Switch edition from my Kickstarter backing.  Is there any further information regarding this?

They sent an email to backers to confirm which version you should get.  If you didn't get one, or it has you down to receive anything but an NOE key, you'll want to contact support@chromatic.games

I might email them anyway, however I backed both.  Sorry I should have included this information, and thank you for attempting to answer my question.
