Halls of Torment is the latest Indie game viral hit, and as a lot of rogue-lite / roguelikes, is a great void filler while we wait for more content in Vampire Survivors. At this point, Halls of Torment is an Early Access game that is picking up quite a pace on Steam, with tens of thousands of players happily grinding through the currently available content. Now, given that the Vampire Survivors developer has announced a couch co-op mode, the natural question pops up among the fans of Halls of Torment: Does Halls of Torment Have Multiplayer, and is it possible to play Halls of Torment with friends? Let’s find out.
Does Halls of Torment have a Multiplayer Feature?
At the time of writing this article, sadly, Halls of Torment does not have a multiplayer feature. I believe it’s too early in the game’s lifespan for this feature to be implemented, albeit I firmly believe it would be a blast to play this game in co-op like those old-school arcades and console beat ’em ups and shoot ’em ups and all that jazz. The developer, Chasing Carrots, has not made any statements about Multiplayer in Halls of Torment.
Will Halls of Torment have a Multiplayer Feature in the Future?
When you look at Vampire Survivors, it took them over a year and a half since the original early access release to implement multiplayer, and almost a year after the full release of the game, if you like to count it that way. Please understand that coding a single-player and multiplayer game are two pretty different worlds and it might not be an easy task to “convert” a game into a multiplayer experience that actually works well. So, don’t lose all hope, but don’t get the hopes up at the same time, if you catch my drift. If it happens – it happens.
If we get co-op multiplayer in the future for Halls of Torment, it would be a blast if you could use a keyboard and mouse for “player one”, and use a controller for “player two”. In that case, check out Halls of Torment Controls Guide (Keyboard and Controller) which will be bound to become useful if multiplayer does happen.
