How to play co-op in Redfall

Unlike some other co-op shooters, Redfall has more restrictions for its online play than you might expect. First is the lack of a matchmaking system, meaning that unless you have friends on either Xbox or PC playing, you won't be able to find partners to play with. If you've got a crew ready to go, here's how to get started.

Step 1: On the main menu, select Host Game.

Step 2: Navigate to your friends list and invite up to three people to join your lobby.

Step 3: Once everyone has joined, simply hit Ready to launch the game.

Step 4: If another friend is acting as the host, simply wait to be invited and accept it through the Game Invites menu.

Some important details to note about multiplayer are that only the host will maintain any story progress made. All other players will need to replay any story missions done in co-op that they haven't done already. What everyone will keep is any levels, weapons, or gear earedn during those sessions. Co-op also must be started in the main menu, meaning you can't join or invite players to a game in progress. If you want to partner up, you'll have to quit out and start a new lobby with your pals.

Horses are your most trustworthy and lively way to travel across Hyrule. While The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom does allow you new ways to get around by building all sorts of crazy contraptions, none can ever replace a well-trained and healthy horse.

If you've got a load of materials or items you need to tow long distances, here's how you can equip and use a towing harness in Tears of the Kingdom.

The ability to climb anything and everything was introduced in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so it would just feel wrong to play The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom without it. The only limit to what you can scale in this game is Link's stamina, but there are other ways to boost your climbing prowess. While foods can offer a temporary buff to stamina, there's one outfit in particular that can give you a more reliable boost to your climbing speed.
