Diablo 4 does have console couch co-op

Prior to the launch of Diablo 4, a developer Livestream had given us some good information about the game, including confirmation that there would be couch co-op available for PlayStation and Xbox players. The livestream also discussed system requirements, the Stronghold and Armor systems, and World Bosses, but the couch co-op news pleased a lot of players. During the Open Beta weekends and Server Slam, players were able to experience the couch co-op system, as that feature was put into place during that time. However, players could only play one of three characters. Now that Early Access is live and the game releases in a matter of days, players will be able to take full advantage of couch co-op.

So let’s dive into the details we have about this feature and learn what you need to do to use it.

How does couch co-op work?

To get started, only one player needs a copy of Diablo 4, but both players need to have their Battle.net account linked to their console accounts. Once you’re both in the game, you’ll be able to enjoy a screen-by-screen experience. Of course, you don’t have to play with friends, but there’s an added benefit in doing so: Players will receive 10% bonus experience if they defeat enemies near a member of their party. So if you’re hoping to level quickly and get into Tier III or Tier IV difficulty or want to crush your enemies in the expansive starting area of Fractured Peaks, this is an incredibly useful perk.

What are the dates and times for Early Access and the Diablo 4 release?

If you’ve already pre-ordered Diablo 4, then you already have Early Access which started on June 2Diablo 4 releases on June 6, and we will continue to provide updates and guides as we get closer to the release date.
