Is Deathloop Split Screen?

With one player essentially solving a complex puzzle box of assassinations and another intending on ruining their plans, here's all we know about local multiplayer.

Is Deathloop Split Screen?

As far as we know, local multiplayer is not part of the Deathloop experience.

With so many things to consider at once, it could be a case of narrowing player focus (and maximising screen real estate).

On the other hand, it gives Julianna players more of a challenge - no screen-peeking.

While Arkane could surprise us, rendering twice the game on the same hardware is likely to cause serious technical compromises, too.

Still, if you're looking for a couch co-op experience, maybe Arkane's next game, Redfall, will offer that. We don't yet know if it'll offer local multiplayer, but as a more PvE experience we'd wager it's a little more likely.
