Lords of the Fallen Online Multiplayer Guide
How does Coop work in Lords of the Fallen?
Cooperative play in Lords of the Fallen begins with a host who can invite one other player to join their game at any point using a drop-in drop-out type of system for seamless uninterrupted play. Players can choose to access cooperative play to get help with specific locations or challenging Bosses in the game, combining the Builds and skills of two different players in PvE. Should a coop partner fall, they can be revived at a seedling Vestige or a regular Vestige. During boss fights, there will also be an option to revive your partner.
Does Lords of the Fallen Support Crossplay?
Crossplay will be available in the game but it is limited to PC and console. Players from two different consoles will not be able to access the crossplay feature.
PvP in Lords of the Fallen
PvP in Lords of the Fallen appears in the form of invasions. These are PvP systems where players can enter other online players' games uninvited to challenge them to a duel. Invasions can occur unexpectedly as long as both players are online.
What are Invasions in Lords of the Fallen?
Much like other soul-like games, players online will be able to invade and be invaded by other players. There is no option to prevent other players from invading as long as you are online in the game, but playing offline or turning off multiplayer altogether will prevent all online interactions from occurring, including invasions. On the other hand, players can access a specific multiplayer consumable item from a vendor which can temporarily prevent them.
Can I Invade Friends in Lords of the FAllen?
Friends who wish to invade each other can feel free to do so in any of the designated PvP zones. 2 Players can make this connection by inputting the same session password while one of them steps into an invasion PvP area. One player of the pair will then become the invader. Choosing to duel each other this way will affect your winnings and rewards.
Matchmaking in Lords of the Fallen
Since players can free to match with all other online players, the game will attempt to match those of similar level. However, the criteria range for matching will expand as the matchmaking process continues. Should players match with someone of a very skill level, the game will attempt to scale the damage to compensate both players and experience.
What are Gestures in Lords of the FAllen?
Gestures can be fun interactive ways to communicate in-game. These are common features found throughout souls-like games. Gestures or Emotes can be used both offline and online. Players will begin with a standard set of gestures, but more can be earned through differnt in-game interactions with different NPCs or by locating them as loot. Each Faction shrine will also have a unique gesture. To view all gestures and how they are obtained, view the Gestures page.
How to Use Coop in Lords of the Fallen
Your online Settings in Lords of the Fallen can be accessed or toggled anytime from your settings under the Multiplayer tab. To activate Multiplayer, access any of the activated Vestiges and select Multiplayer to host a game to invite a friend, invite a player through matchmaking, input a session password to join someone, or choose to invade another online player. Your options for multiplayer will appear as follows:
- Beckon lampbearer
- Beckon Friend
- Accompany lampbearer
- Slaughter lampbearer
Host Controls in Lords of the Fallen
When in a cooperative or PvP match, the host will be in control of the setting. This includes the world state. They will get to control whether they play in Axiom or Umbral. This also includes warping. Guests in coop will warp with the host whenever they travel. Guests will have very little control over the gameplay, and progression done within cooperative play will not affect the guests game. All main loot, and hidden loot will be available to the host, while guests can pick up general loot and drops, but will not have most control or access to hidden items and items in chests. This also applies to PvP. Even during invasions, the host will have primary control of the game.
How to Revive a teammate in Lords of the Fallen
If a player is downed whilst traversing the lands, the cooperative teammate will have the ability to receive the other player. You will be able to see a glowing spot in the area where they were downed. Approach the spot to reveal the option to revive them, but be aware of your surroundings before you begin to do so.
Coop Character Progression in Lords of the Fallen
When playing cooperatively, only the host will progress their game and advance in your storyline. The Invitee will still gain any XP and loot earned from the cooperative run.
Sharing Loot in Lords of the Fallen Coop
Loot from enemies and drops can be accessed by both players in a cooperative party. This includes all weapons consumables, armour, and shields. However, only hosts can access world loot and hidden items, which include items in chests.
Maximum Party Size for Lords of the Fallen
Online play is an optional feature that requires PS Plus for PlayStation. Some notes include that it supports up to 3 online players which already includes one other friend (the Host and invitee), plus a potential invader which totals to three. There is a maximum of 2 players in a party, and playing cooperatively does not prevent invasions.
