In this article, therefore, we will give you all the necessary information you need about Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader coop, so that you are ready to face what the game has to offer in the company of other players.
Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader Coop Explained
The first thing you need to know to be able to start and try the Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader coop mode is that, obviously, you will have to go to the “Cooperative Mode” section, which is present in the game menu. So, the first time you go to this section, a tab will appear on the screen in which you will be explained in broad terms what you need to do to play Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader with your friends. But let's see in detail what it is.
First of all, the first thing to do is to create a lobby. So, very simply, all you have to do is select the relevant option that you will find in the “Cooperative Mode” menu. At this point, you will be shown another screen where you can see useful information regarding the slots that can be occupied by other players (in addition to yours, there will be five others, to be exact), your player ID, and your save file. In fact, to be able to play multiplayer with your friends, you must already have a game file and have started your adventure.
Then, select the save file you want to use to play with other players and then have them join your lobby. Luckily for you, it's a very simple thing. Forget about the wooden mechanics of classic Soulslikes; here, you just need to press the “+” button and invite any player you want. Otherwise, if you don't want to be the one to invite your friends but you want them to join, all you have to do is share your lobby ID with them.
This, therefore, leads us to explain how to join an existing lobby in Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader. To do this, it is important that the person who created the lobby is present on your friends list; otherwise, you will not be able to join their lobby. At least it's not the person who created the lobby who shares his ID with you, as we said previously.
Another very important thing that you need to keep in mind if you want to play Rogue Trader with your friends is that if you decide to use a save file where you are at the start of the game, they will not be able to play as their character, but they will take the place of one of your party members. As a result, our advice is to progress through the story and get to a point where you can play with as many friends as you want, playing their character.
