The remake for Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons has seem fit to add a new local co-op mode to the classic game, but does it also have online co-op?

After all, not everyone has gamer friends to play games with locally. Having an online co-op would make it much easier to see this game’s thrilling narrative to completion in co-op!

In this short article, we look into what online co-op features were added to the game, if any.

Does Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Remake Have Online Co-Op?

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Remake: Does it Have Online Co-Op?

The short answer to the title’s question is simple: no. Sadly, the remake of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons does not have any online co-op functionality.

While this is somewhat understandable, given how parts of the game work, it’s still an odd omission.

It does, however, include a new local co-op mode. You can’t play with far-away brothers through online functionality, but you can cozy up and play with others in real life at least.

However, this local co-op does present a unique opportunity for those wanting to play online!

Remote Play Together feature listed on steam

You can use Steam’s Remote Play Together or the PlayStation 5’s Share Play features to play online co-op thanks to streaming.

These features allow you to stream the game for someone else, and they can join and play with you. This effectively emulates the game’s local co-op through the internet.

Do note that you will need a pretty decent internet connection, of course. You’ll also need a pretty beefy PC, if you are playing and streaming Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons through Steam!

Sadly, though, Xbox gamers are left out of this feature. There’s no equivalent feature for the Xbox Series, so there’s no workarounds on Xbox…

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Remake gameplay

Ultimately, it’s a shame that the remake of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons chose to add only local co-op.

We still think the game is better as a single-player experience, sure, but you might as well add online co-op if you already added local co-op!

But well, at least PC gamers and PlayStation 5 owners get to have a workaround thanks to their systems’ features…
