Learn how to set up a co-op session so you can play with friends in Code Vein.
Playing with friends in Code Vein is a pretty easy process. The game comes with a fairly robust co-op system, which when activated, allows you to play with random players or limit your co-op session to just playing with friends. There are a few things you need to do before this, so let’s dive right in.
Code Vein – Play With Friends
Code Vein has co-op, which means you can definitely play with friends. But there are some things you need to do first. For those playing on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, you may need a subscription to your console’s gaming service. Xbox Live or PlayStation Plus being the respective services. Anyone playing on PC won’t need a subscription.
To play with friends, you will need to do the following things:
- Select the Online option when starting the game
- Load into a co-op/multiplayer area (not the Home Base)
- Pause the game and navigate to the Multiplayer tab
- Send a Distress Signal or search for a Distress Signal
- Wait for your friend to join or for you to join your friend
If you only want to play with a friend in Code Vein, make sure you set a password. This can be done via the Settings in Network Settings. Enter a password that you and your friend will both use. Only players with that password will be able to join your game.
You can only play co-op when out and about in the main world or when in the Depths. You can’t co-op when inside the Home Base or when an area’s boss has been defeated. The player who joins the host will also have fewer healing items and have their level reduced to match the host.
Playing Code Vein with a friend is simple. Make sure you’ve selected the Online mode at the start of the game, and then use the Multiplayer tab when in-game to play with your friend. Remember to set up a password so no one else accidentally joins your game. For more Code Vein guides, such as where to go in the Ruined City Center, you’re already in the right place.
