Starhawk to get split-screen multiplayer and dual log-in through PlayStation Network on one system

NEWS | ? Comments |

Online gaming may be fun, but there are few experiences more satisfying in the world of gaming than owning your friends whilst playing on the same screen. The developers of Starhawk seem to understand this, as the upcoming shooter will include a robust, two-player split-screen play.

Yeah, it will be only two players, not four like the game's predecessor, Warhawk. According to a post of on the PlayStation Blog, SCEA senior producer Harvard Bonin said that this was because not enough people used four-player in Warhawk. He went on to say that instead the developers focused on making two-player better.

One of the biggest new features of the two-player mode is "Dual Log-in", which means that you and a friend can each sign in their PSN IDs on the same PS3. This will allow you to keep the experience points that earn at your friend's house and take it home with you to apply to your character there.

There is one downside to the split-screen multiplayer, and that is that Player Two cannot earn trophies or character customizations. That is because these are stored directly onto the PS3. While it is far from perfect, it is an improvement over Warhawk, as Player Two wasn't even able to gain experience points.

If, however, you care only for the online part, then it should excite you to known that you will be able to take on 31 other players in Starhawk's online multiplayer. That's a lot of people to potentially own at one time, am I right?

Starhawk releases May 8.
