Capcom has added local co-op play to the PC edition of Resident Evil: Revelations 2.

Co-op play was initially removed from the PC version to ensure a stable user experience across a variety of different PC settings and devices.

However, the game was mistakenly advertised as containing co-op, and that slip-up resulted in 43 percent of the game’s Steam reviews being negative. Capcom subsequently offered refunds to customers who purchased the game expecting co-op.

Now, Capcom has released an open beta patch that adds split-screen co-op.

"We want to get this feature in the hands of our PC players as soon as possible, so this option may not be 100 percent polished when it is released," Capcom said.

"Feedback from those who try it out is welcomed. For anyone who isn't satisfied with this option, refunds are available through Steam."

Gameplanet published its review of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 episodes 1 & 2 yesterday.
