Does The Quarry Have Co-op or Online Multiplayer?

While The Quarry may be a cinematic horror game, you might want to play it with friends. So: does it have co-op or online multiplayer?

After players turned Until Dawn into a shared experience, developer Supermassive Games added a couch co-op mode to its Dark Pictures Anthology titles to make it even easier to do. Even better, it also a new online multiplayer mode, allowing players to enjoy titles such as House of Ashes with people all around the world. The good news is that those features multiplayer features return in The Quarry.

However: one of those features isn’t available at launch. Delayed by a few weeks, the online multiplayer mode of The Quarry will be patched in at a later date. It’s not all bad news, though. Play the game now and you’ll find that you can play it with friends in local couch co-op, passing the controller around as the action switches from one character to another.

Between two to eight players can join in with The Quarry‘s local multiplayer mode. Each player chooses the character/s they’d like to play as, and will take control of the game when that character is up, making their decisions and choosing what happens to them.

Unfortunately, The Quarry‘s online multiplayer mode wasn’t quite ready for launch. Supermassive Games is promising to deliver it by 8th July, though, so in a month or less, you’ll be able to play with your friends wherever they are.
