Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance Couch Co-Op Coming After Launch
Local co-op multiplayer is officially coming to Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance. Tuque Games and Wizards of the Coast announced the addition of split-screen multiplayer during a recent developer livestream, confirming the feature would arrive this summer as part of the game’s first free DLC. While 2-player couch co-op won’t be available at launch, the team expressed implementing it would be their “main priority” following launch.
Just announced on the Dev Stream: We heard you loud and clear.
After Dark Alliance launches, our main priority is supporting 2-player split-screen couch co-op for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.

Like its tabletop counterpart, multiplayer plays a major role in the Dark Alliance games, with each level featuring legions of baddies well-suited for a team-based slaying. While shipping with an online matchmaking mode keeps a similar spirit alive for most players, Tuque Games going the extra mile and developing a local co-op mode is sure to be a welcome addition, especially for patrons of the offline-only Dark Alliance games of old.
Releasing for consoles, PC, and Xbox Game Pass in less than a month, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance has set itself up as an action-packed successor to the original Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance, featuring a new third-person gameplay perspective, a myriad of epic boss battles, as well as an old-school heavy metal aesthetic. While going at it alone is indeed possible in the new Dark Alliance, it appears that great attention has been placed on making multiplayer as worthwhile as possible.
