Multiplayer for Bloodstained: Ritual of The Night is an integral part of the game that will allow players to somehow easily progress the story with the help of their friends. This page will focus on what the multiplayer mechanic has to offer for the game, and this will be updated once more information is known.


Multiplayer in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night currently has not launched with a co-op or multiplayer function. Despite that, in the launch trailer, it is revealed that Co-op will be added into the game post-launch as a free DLC along with much more content. You can check the launch trailer below - Based on the trailer the following co-op features were highlighted are:


Co-op Feature

It is safe to assume that for this mode you can play with your friends locally or online while playing the main story. It is still unclear if players can play only up to two characters or even more since more playable characters were mentioned to be part of the free DLC.

Versus Mode

As the name implies, this mode will most likely allow players to challenge and fight other players in local play or online.

Online Play

Similar to the others, not much has been mentioned for what is featured in this mode. However, based on the icon that was shown in the trailer, players may be able to play a special game mode such as a "Time Attack Mode" where you and your friend need to work together to clear out an area or a boss as fast as you can or before the time runs out. Celeste's Room is believed to be the area chosen for the online lobby.

      I actually backed the kickstarter for this specifically because I wanted to play multiplayer with my brother. This was back in 2016, and the game came out in 2017, and was supposed to have co-op on release. It is nearing the end of 2021 and not only is there no co-op, but for consoles it still is labeled for multiplayer; however, on steam they have "recently" removed the co-op tag. I came looking to see if there's been at least some kind of update on if the game ever will get the multiplayer, but considering the game has been out for 4 and a half years and still doesn't have all the promised launch features, I'm guessing there won't be multiplayer in my lifetime.

        It's September 2021 and they still haven't delivered on even local co-op yet despite it being advertised as such on the box.

          Imagine a bunch of losers last year crying over multiplayer and saying it'll take forever when it was released.

              It states on the back of the cover that this game has local and online co-op yet this isn’t true. Why put mistruths on the cover, what purpose does that serve? If someone purchases this game on the basis of the aforementioned erroneous label, they should recieve an immediate refund. Additionally there is no set timeframe or approximate as to when this promised content will be released.

                Everyone remain calm. They plan on having a LOT of DLC. And they are hawking over the community for ideas. More than likely, there will be a lot of requests met. But it needs time, be thankful they put out such a masterpiece, and even more thankful they want to add even more to it.

                  Disappointing that the Xbox One physical copy states 2 player local, AND 2 player Online, yet includes neither............
