The co-op performance we’ve got now’s already good.
And the way would conventional co-op even work in souls?
Do you and your good friend simply share a single save file the place each of you may log in anytime and play? If that’s the case then what if one good friend performs alone for some time and will get to date forward that it makes the sport unfun and too simple for the opposite good friend when enjoying collectively. Additionally how would you deal with the looting and boss system, does the loot go to each individuals or simply whoever final hits or opens the chest first will get it? What occurs in case your good friend kills a boss whilst you’re not on? Do you simply miss out on the boss?
What if each of you need to enter the save file for the sport to work? That will even be unhealthy as a result of if one particular person cannot play the sport anymore you simply lose all progress on the save file and have to begin once more, which is jarring.
And the way do you deal with enemy or boss design? When you make enemies have a ton of well being to make it more difficult for a number of individuals you simply make enemies spongy and unfun to battle, if you happen to simply spam enemies you’d must have the areas and aggro vary designed round a ton of enemies which would not be enjoyable even with areas suited to enemy spam. Additionally altering the areas for enemy spam in co-op would make the areas empty for single participant when there aren’t many enemies. It might be too pricey to even take into account 2 completely different areas for every mode and would make the sport a special expertise for individuals and make the opinions inconsistent.
I simply actually do not assume co-op in a conventional method matches souls, what we’ve got now’s good.
Edit: Forgot so as to add: conventional co-op works properly in loads of video games like Halo as a result of they’re stage primarily based, you and your good friend or simply your good friend alone can return and play the extent once more everytime you need, you may’t replay a boss in a single save file until you get summoned as a cooperator in ER. Genres are additionally completely different, ER is an RPG with leveling methods and weapon stat leveling so like I stated your good friend can simply get so forward enjoying the sport alone it should grow to be unfun and too simple once you return in to play together with your good friend.
