LEGO City Undercover Re-Release Coming in April, Includes Co-Op

Saving LEGO City is hard work. Bring a friend.

Last month, we learned LEGO City Undercover is getting a re-release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. People understandably wondered if the re-launched game, which was previously exclusive to the Wii U, has co-op mode. The answer: Yes. Yes, it does.

Warner Bros' newest trailer for LEGO City Undercover specifically shows off the co-op mode, which unfortunately isn't present in the Wii U version of the game. As with most LEGO games, you enter split-screen mode when players wander away from each other. LEGO City Undercover is an open-world game, so if you play with a friend, expect to be out of each others' line of sight for extended periods of time.

While LEGO games have been criticized for being repetitive and tepid action / adventure titles, LEGO City Undercover is a comparatively good time. Its sprawling overworld is based on the GTA games – though you can't take a baseball bat to hapless pedestrians' heads for obvious reasons. Co-op is a very welcome addition for anyone who likes to play LEGO adventures with a youngster.

The LEGO City Undercover re-release drops for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on April 4 in North America.
