Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 1 is now available on PC. Unfortunately, it comes without local co-op for the PC version.
After uproar from fans online, Capcom shared this statement to IGN:
The PC version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 supports a variety of customizable visual settings and resolutions. The decision to prioritize a single local screen was made to ensure a stable user experience across a variety of different PC settings and devices. Raid mode will support online co-op shortly after launch when a free patch is available for players to download which adds this feature, but the main campaign on PC will only be available to play in single local screen.
While the explanation seems acceptable enough, it seems the problem here is Capcom didn’t warn fans beforehand that this promised feature wasn’t ready yet.
