Ys IX: Monstrum Nox Gets PC Local Co-op Mode Update

Ys IX Monstrum Nox has gained a major update which adds local co-op mode to the hack ‘n’ slash Action-RPG on PC via Steam. Players can now team up with a friend and join the battle together. Fight monsters and explore dungeons in couch co-op with the drop-in drop-out feature.

New couch co-op means fighting through monsters and exploring together in Ys IX Monstrum Nox on PC

Players should note in order to enable local co-op they must use the “Start” button on any non-primary controller and then use the “Select” button on the secondary controller in order to toggle player ID which will indicate “P1” and “P2” toggling on and off.

Cooperative mode not only lets players enjoy the combat together but gives the second player quite a similar experience to the primary player including combat abilities, using Monstrum Gifts, discovering and triggering landmarks, encountering enemies and events, opening chests, discovering collectibles as well as initiating dialogue. The only major difference is that interacting with menus and the map is only available to the primary player. Another improvement is that the co-op feature allows players to individually choose their character.

The developer shares that the feature is still an experimental mode, with select situations that may cause a “softlock” which can cause the player to be logged out. Other restrictions outlined include you will need two controllers to play in co-op mode or one controller each for Steam remote play. The camera control is slightly limited as it shares one camera.

Check out the trailer below:
