Side by Side vs. Online co-op

Side by Side vs. Online co-op - 28/10/15 01:37 PM

Long time owner of the PC version, recently bought the XBox One version so I can play both couch split screen and online co-op with the gf.

Question is, can I continue a couch split screen game online (assuming both of us own a copy of the game)? Or are they completely separated?

I would assume so, because the save is tied to a profile and only one of the players has it.

Yes, the best way to do this is to create your game and starting characters on your xbox. At this point you can play together at your place. If she goes home she can continue playing with you by joining your game and taking control over her character again.

TL;DR: Yes

Also if you ever break up you can still finish the game since you can control her characters as well, but let's hope that never happens :P.

Yes, Larian had a video demonstrating that exact situation.
