Will There Be Co-Op Features in Rise of the Ronin?

Rise of the Ronin, the highly anticipated PS5 exclusive from Team Ninja, promises an immersive co-op experience set in Bakumatsu-era Japan.


Team Ninja’s upcoming Action-Adventure RPG Rise of the Ronin is one of the most anticipated games of 2024. Set in the Bakumatsu era, you step into the Tabi of a masterless samurai, a Ronin, as you fight to reshape Japan’s history with your trusty Katana. It’s got a pretty sweet backdrop that promises to transport you to the land of the rising sun.

And if Team Ninja’s past classics, such as the Ninja Gaiden series, Nioh, and even the recent Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, can serve as an indication, we can expect plenty of over-the-top combat mechanics in this upcoming PS5 exclusive.

As if that wasn’t enough, the devs have also confirmed that this game will feature a fully fleshed-out co-op system. So you’re not playing as just a lone masterless samurai; you’ll also be able to call in your friends when things turn south.

In this article, we’ll take a magnifying glass and dissect all the coop and multiplayer options the devs promised in Rise of the Ronin. Let’s get started!

Is There Co-Op in Rise of the Ronin?

While there was no official news of co-op or multiplayer options when Rise of the Ronin was first revealed, as we get closer to the launch date, developers are releasing a lot of new information. And among them, the thing that caught most players’ attention is that Rise of the Ronin will feature an online Co-op mode.

In the PlayStation Store page of the game, there’s a new FAQ section where the devs said that the game will be able to join up to three other players to play the main story missions of the game together.

Whether that means the open-world exploration is single-player only, we don’t know that yet. Another important thing to note is that since Rise of the Ronin is a PlayStation exclusive, the players need to have an active PS Plus subscription on their account to experience the multiplayer options in the game.

Furthermore, the devs stated that the game will not feature any PVP mode which means if you wanted something akin to multiplayer options in souls-like games such as Dark Souls or Elden Ring, you’re out of luck. You won’t be able to challenge your friends or Invade online to fight other players in the open-world of Rise of the Ronin.

Still, the fact that a game of this caliber is coming out with an online co-op option is great news. Even though you’re playing as a masterless samurai, you don’t have to go through the experience alone.

So call your friends and party up as Rise of the Ronin releases on March 22, 2024. If you’ve been out of the loop, you’ll find everything you wanted to know about this upcoming game in this article! Good luck!
