Hey guys,

May still be a little early to ask, but as you all know, PAYDAY: The Heist direly missed having a local co-op mode/splitscreen for PS3.

Is there any chance that there will be such a mode for PAYDAY 2?

I will be buying the game on PC regardless, but if there's a splitscreen co-op mode on PS3 as well, I'll definately be hitting up the PSN Store.


Thanks,

Mikal.

Too early to tell, but I doubt it. There's a thread about that sort of thing over here. (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3092613) You could put it down as a request.

I think it would be a nice addition for the consoles, I would most likely buy the Xbox version if it did have split screen. I will still buy the PC version too since that's what I play on 90% of the time.

I will be very glad if split-screen could be implemented... who knows, in the near future I will buy Payday 2 again for PS3 and play it with some friend in the same console!

Yeah, Payday is so arcade shooter like, it'd be nice to have split screen. I feel like it's a good game to invite some guys over and play all night.

It's intense, but also comical, and relaxing. Good party game.

I remember it being a very great addition to Serious Sam 3 and personally would love to see it happen in Payday 2.

My God, why didn't we think of it before?

Payday: The Arcade Game.

I'd play it.

Didn't someone try making a little 8 bit flash game before?

Depends for Overkill if its worth for them to make that option.

I am not a console gamer, but if there will be an option to vote for the console Payday 2 split-screen,I would love to vote for yes.

Gonna give this a bump.
Should be less than 3 months now until the game releases, but haven't heard any official word (for or against) if this feature will be present in the PS3/360 release.

Split-screen in Payday is pointless: how the hell would leveling up and specializations work for the second player?

look at the SpecOps from CoD MW 2 and 3, a extra saveslot is created for the second player in wich his progress is saved, presto chango.
cant imagine that to be so complicated a thing to think of.;)

What? It would literally be like putting 2 people on the same screen instead of 2 different screens. Why wouldn't leveling up work :confused:

An update on this, David Goldfarb has Tweeted (https://twitter.com/locust9/status/345665738033475585) that there will be no splitscreen support. But it still could be a possibility to be patched into the game in the future.

In a E3 interview, they said the game wont feature split-screen at launch. But might come via a match after release.

Cheers for that guys.

Ah well, looks like I'll be sticking with my PC pre-order for now. Will certainly pick up a copy from the PSN if splitscreen is added though...

Guys, they've changed. Looks like you will have to buy it on both Mikal :)
Just went and took a picture from my xbox 360 Dashboard, looks like there will be local 4 player splitscreen. (Co-op 1-4)

Awesome!
Is split-screen co-op going to be on PS3 too?

Don't forget the pc, games like Serious sam 3 have 4 player split screen on pc, and many others. It'd be great to just have the option to do it.

Are there any overkill info about that?
On payday2 I already read some trash info, and the last I read/listen about the split screen it was that maybe they add it on some patch after the release

I think I'll remain cautiously optimistic on this one. There's been a lot of false information being spread by third parties about Payday 2 in the past and I wouldn't be too surprised if this was another example of it.
