Capcom has issued an apology to users who purchased a PC version of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for the lack of an offline co-operative mode.

Posting on the Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Steam page, the publisher explained that the feature "wasn’t intended for this version and that caveat was mistakenly omitted from the product description on the Steam page earlier, and then included as soon as we were made aware. This was an unintentional error and again, we apologize for the confusion this may have caused."

Capcom assured that it was investigating the matter and "potential solutions," saying it hoped to bring out updates "very soon." This suggests that Capcom may not be end up implementing a split-screen co-op mode, but another alternative gameplay mode.

Offline co-op was initially advertised as a feature in Resident Evil: Revelations 2 on its Steam store page. The description of the game stated that players will be able to "overcome the nightmares in either single player mode with an AI partner or offline co-op." According to Capcom, offline co-op was removed to ensure more stable user experiences across different PC settings.

The first episode of Resident Evil Revelations 2 launched earlier this week, with the remaining three episodes to be released over the coming month. Check out how it scored in GameSpot's review.
