Couch Co-op Mode Coming to Vampire Survivors in August Update

Fight and survive with friends. poncle

Tired of fighting the thousands of creatures of the night in Vampire Survivors alone? Be patient because a free update arriving on August 17 will add the couch co-op mode. With this, up to four players can play in local couch co-op on PC, Xbox, Steam Deck, Android, and iOS.

In co-op mode, players can either continue their current game or start a new one with friends and face the undead horde. In addition, they can also switch seamlessly between single and co-op plays between stages. Although there's no versus mode, co-op plays will still test the strength of friendship.

Couch Co-op Details

Here are some other details of the upcoming couch co-op:

  • The mode won't support online play.
  • This mode is designed in a way that players can go through the game with friends.
  • There won't be co-op specific levels.
  • There won't be any couch co-op focused achievements. This is to prevent players from having to play co-op just to unlock and see everything in the game.
  • Every character can only be selected by one player per turn.

Switch Version

Vampire Survivors is already available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Android, and iOS. On the same launch day of the free update, the game will head to Nintendo Switch for $4.99. It'll come with the latest updates, including the couch co-op patch. DLCs like the Legacy of the Moonspell and Tides of the Foscari are offered but must be purchased for $1.99 each.

Vampire Survivors has players mow down thousands of creatures and try to survive until dawn. This gothic horror casual game features rogue-lite elements where players' decisions can quickly snowball against the hundreds of monsters thrown at them. Despite the title, the game doesn't actually feature vampires.

Vampire Survivors was the highest-rated game on Steam in 2022 with 98% overwhelmingly positive rating on more than 180,000 reviews. The game won two BAFTAs, including Best Game, and was even featured on the New Yorker's "Best Video Games 2022."
