Vampire Survivors adds local co-op mode with up to 4 players in latest update

Developer poncle has launched a much-awaited feature for Vampire Survivors, letting fans of the popular title team up with their besties in local co-op mode.

Additionally, if you're a Switch player, you'll be glad to know that the game is launching on the platform today along with the Legacy of the Moonspell and Tides of the Foscari DLCs available for purchase.

In the latest update for Vampire Survivors, you can engage in some local co-op with your best buds and "be the bullet hell" as you switch seamlessly between single and co-op modes across different stages.
