Does Journey to the Savage Planet have couch co-op?

Find out if you can play offline same-screen co-op with a friend in Journey to the Savage Planet by Typhoon Studios.

If you like messing about with a friend, Journey to the Savage Planet’s ridiculous alien world and fun traversal tools may be exactly what you’re looking for in a co-op title. The game was marketed as a co-op friendly adventure, but that’s left many potential players wondering if Journey to the Savage Planet has offline couch co-op? The answer likely won’t please, but we’ve brought it to you anyway in this quick guide on the available co-op features.

Sadly, no, Journey to the Savage Planet does not have couch co-op. That means two players cannot play on the same console or TV. To play Journey to the Savage Planet in co-op, you’ll need to head online and partner up with someone else who bought a copy. If you’re playing on PS4 or Xbox One, that also means you’ll need PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold to be able to play Journey to the Savage Planet in co-op. 

It’s certainly a shame that we can’t rustle through the alien world with a friend on the same TV, it’s worth bearing in mind that developer Typhoon Studios is an indie company, and that designing features like same-screen co-op can be both development time and system intensive. Perhaps we’ll get a couch co-op update in future, but we don’t suggest relying on it.

If you can find a friend to partner up with online, we highly recommend doing so. You don’t need to play in co-op to complete any of Journey to the Savage Planet, but taking on fights is a lot more enjoyable with two astronauts pulling their weight.

So that’s all there is so know about couch co-op in Journey to the Savage Planet. It might not be the answer your after, but that’s just how it is some times. While you’re here, perhaps these other guides for the game might be of interest to your space-savvy brain:
