PC and PS4 are getting cross-play

Anybody who has performed just one minute of Spelunky is aware of that the littlest factor can derail any effort. Creator Derek Yu will not let that occur for the PC launch of Spelunky 2.

When Spelunky 2 hits PC on September 29, it will not embody on-line cooperative play. That is a concession that Yu is making as a way to forestall a delay.

Spelunky 2 is coming to Steam subsequent Tuesday! Sadly, we determined to not launch with on-line co-op enabled – that manner we are able to enhance it with out delaying the discharge. The upside is that once we add it again, it is going to have cross-play with PS4! (…)https://t.co/8lKyxjbxh9

As an alternative, on-line co-op is coming someday down the road, after the builders can be certain that it is functioning correctly. For context, Spelunky 2 launched on PS4 with wonky netcode that left gamers lag-teleporting round. In a recreation the place precision is of the utmost significance, meaning on-line co-op is irredeemably busted. The PC model will not make the identical mistake.

As a silver lining, PS4 and PC can have on-line multiplayer cross-play when it is lastly carried out on PC. There isn’t any timetable for this, as it’s totally clearly a “We can’t launch it till we’re fully assured it really works” kind of state of affairs.

Now, as a Friday deal with, I might wish to throw it again to The Every day Spelunk. Jordan has been obsessing over Spelunky 2 for the previous few weeks (I’ve been too however with no intention of ever enjoying it), and he practically did one thing spectacular final night time. Almost. Horseshoes and hand grenades, Jordan. You achieved nothing. Or, I suppose horseshoes and sticky bombs on this case.
