  1. Local multiplayer


    Currently I have a gold subscription and 2 profiles share it.

    Id like to be able to play Deep Rock Galactic with one person on PC and one on Xbox Console in my home.

    I thought I could do this buy purchasing DRG through steam and my (already owned) Xbox version but that doesn't work, so I refunded the steam version.

    If I buy a gold subscription for the 2nd Live account, will that let us run the game at the same time on both devices because its 2 different Gold subs?

    When I run DRG on Console and try to use the PC, or vice versa, it will sign out one device because gold is being shared.

    Also if having 2 gold accounts eliminates this problem, will the second live profile need to purchase the game again as well? I would think so because thats not the case right now, but If so, then the better way to go would buy 2 copies for PC through Steam instead of 2 copies and 2 gold subs to do the same thing....

    :)

    No, it doesn't and the most irritating part is that, even for the 2HG, both players at that console have to have Gold Memberships. This is stupid.

    Local Multiplayer?

    There are not really that many Xbox One games where you can play same-screen multiplayer, but there are a few. It's one area where I personally would also like to see more games.

    If you look at the Store on the console games supporting this are indicated by saying "1-2 people/Xbox One" or "1-4 people/Xbox One" etc. Unfortunately the Store on the website (http://store.xbox.com) does
    not yet show that information.

    Here's an example of a few:

    Rayman Legends (multiple players on screen completing levels, plus a football/soccer minigame);

    Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (one game mode is available in two-player split-screen);

    Forza Motorsport 5;

    Call of Duty: Ghosts (probably the same for Advanced Warfare - two players can 1v1 locally or split the screen and go online together);

    Chariot; and

    Diablo 3 (supports up to 4 players on-screen).

    There are probably a few more that I've forgotten. I expect Worms Battlegrounds also allows for same-screen multiplayer but I'm not 100% certain.

    There are also more coming out, especially some ID@Xbox games, for instance IDARB and a few others that should be releasing in the months to come.

    I hope this information is of value to you. Let us know if you have more questions about this, or anything else on the console.

    Also, any games you may own on disc contain information related to how many players the game is for/can be for on the back of the box/case for the game. For example, NHL 19 says its Xbox Single Player, Multiplayer, and Co-Op (meaning local and solo play)
    while also being Xbox Live Multiplayer and Co-Op (meaning there is online.)
