While Man of Medan is similar in many ways to other horror titles from Supermassive Games like Until Dawn, there are several new features for players to check out. When scanning through these features, one common question is whether or not you can play co-op multiplayer in Man of Medan. To help clarify everything, we’ve put together a quick guide addressing the co-op multiplayer options in Man of Medan!
Is there co-op multiplayer in Man of Medan?
Yes, there are co-op multiplayer options available in Man of Medan. What’s interesting is that you’ll be able to not only play the campaign itself in co-op, but there’s also a mode called Movie Night that supports local co-op and up to five players. To play the campaign co-op, you’ll need to select the “Don’t Play Alone” option from the main menu of Man of Medan.
After that, select “Shared Story” and then invite a friend to play with you. Note that you can only tackle this co-op multiplayer option with a friend online who also owns a copy of Man of Medan and has a stable internet connection. Rather than serve up a solo experience where the responsibility of your actions falls solely on your shoulders, both you and your friend will be able to make choices independent from one another.
It’s odd, but works pretty well and adds another layer of fun to the game. Meanwhile, there’s a separate co-op mode called Movie Night. To access this mode, you’ll need to once again select “Don’t Play Alone” from the Man of Medan main menu. There, you’ll find the “Movie Night” option which supports local co-op multiplayer with up to five people at a time.
With Movie Night, each person gets to choose a character and then has to focus on making decisions for that character alone, rather than for all of the characters in a sort of campaign setting. What’s nice about Movie Night is that not only can it be played locally, but on a single controller. If you have friends over but lack controllers for everyone, we highly recommend the Movie Night mode in Man of Medan. It’s a blast!
Now that you know whether there are co-op multiplayer options available in Man of Medan, be sure to check out our previous guide where we go over how long it’ll take you to beat Man of Medan and how many chapters are included in the campaign!
