Co-operative Play (or Co-op) is available in Outward both as split-screen and online multiplayer. Currently only two players can be in the same world at the same time.
Players can play in split-screen by either pressing the Start Split button during gameplay and choosing an existing Character, or by creating a two-player save file.
To join an online game, players should first make sure they select the same Network region in their in-game settings. The Host should then create an online game from the pause menu and choose a Room name. The guest can then join this room by pressing Join Game from the pause menu.
While in Co-op play, enemies have modified stats:
- Max Health +50% to +85%
- Impact Resistance +0% to +30%, usually +20% (with one boss exception)
- Impact +75%
- All Damages +15%
The Impact Resistance boost can vary between enemies greatly. And not every type of enemy will have all of these stat boosts. Some enemy types you encounter, especially ones found early in the game, will only have a few of these boosts.
