If you’re looking forward to the chance to jump in and play with your friends in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, you have every reason to be excited. There are plenty of things for you to do with your pals, and you can do most of it online. There’s also the return of Zombies, meaning you and your friends need to work through hordes of the undead to survive until the end. You can also bring a friend with you through split-screen co-op, but there are some specifics about it.
Here’s the breakdown for how the split-screen co-op works for campaign, zombies, and online multiplayer. We do know it does not have any four-player spilt screen. We have no
Does the campaign have co-op?
That’s a big no. The campaign in Cold War does not have a co-op feature, so you won’t be able to play with your friend. But that’s not the game’s main appeal, especially if you want to play with a friend, so it’s not the worst thing in the world.
Does the zombie mode have co-op?
Supposedly, yes. You won’t be able to play this mode offline, though. Zombies co-op, while you are playing offline, is unavailable. However, the game’s current patch when it releases, 1.04, gives players the option to add a second controller while in the lobby, but it never launches. The mode may require a second patch for everything to line up for the developers to kick into gear. Zombies are definitely a mode you want to co-op split-screen in, so hopefully, we see this occur in the future.
For PlayStation players, they’ll also be able to play the new zombie onslaught mode. It’ll have a two-player experience, and it does have co-op, again, online.
Does multiplayer have co-op?
The versus multiplayer mode appears to have this feature, so feel free to explore it with your friend and jump into a few games.
While the singleplayer portion of the game only always for one person, the other modes allow for couch co-op.
