Sackboy: A Big Adventure will not include online multiplayer at launch
Sackboy: A Big Adventure will not include online multiplayer functionality when it arrives on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 next week, developer Sumo Digital has announced.
“We’ve made the difficult decision to delay the full online multiplayer functionality within Sackboy: A Big Adventure,” design director Ned Waterhouse said in a PlayStation Blog post. “The team have been working hard to ensure that online is the very best experience it can be for players and we just need a little more time to get it right so you can enjoy it to the fullest with your friends and family.”
Online multiplayer is now scheduled to arrive via a patch before the end of the year. This update will introduce cross-generational multiplayer between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as the option to transfer saves from PS4 to PS5.
Until the update arrives, players will be able to enjoy multiplayer via offline couch co-op for between 2-4 players.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure launches November 12th for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
