Lego City Undercover Launches April 4 With Co-Op Mode

The updated version of the Wii U’s Lego launch title is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on April 4, and this time you don’t have to go it alone.

Though the feature was leaked in a Best Buy listing for the game last month, it’s nice to have official confirmation that we’ll be able to play Lego City Undercover with a friend in tow this time around. Co-op was a feature sadly lacking from the Wii U original, likely due to that game’s reliance on the Wii U game pad.

Judging by the new trailer, which shows off togetherness after a stunning display of disguise by hero Chase McCain, it looks like Undercover will utilize the same scaling split-screen tech employed by most modern co-op Lego games, with the screen splitting in two when the players are apart. Given the scale of Lego City Undercover’s open environments, that’ll come in real handy.

Another Lego game for me to buy, play for a few hours, then set down in my back catalog. I like the Lego games a lot but I never seem to finish them. It’ll fit in nicely next to Lego Batman 3 though.
