Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Loophole Allows Online Co-Op Multiplayer
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga does support co-op multiplayer but it is limited to local split-screen only, although there is a trick to play online.
Most Lego games usually offer co-op however, this is limited to the split-screen offline co-op. There are a few rare Lego games that might include online co-op, but the newest Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga doesn’t appear to offer it.
A user on Reddit has managed to find a way to make it work online though and has shared it in detail on the Xbox subreddit.
Here are the instructions that were shared by the user to play Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga with online co-op along with a friend or partner.
What do you need:
- Xbox Console with a controller (obviusly)
- A PC with wired connection.
- A controller for the PC, my friend used a PS5 controller and it worked with DS4Windows.
- 1 account with the game.
With all of that ready, lets start.
- First, turn on your Xbox Console, go to settings, and search for Remote play option, turn it on.
- In the PC, your friend needs to download the Xbox App.
- In the PC, your friend needs to login with YOUR account in the Xbox App.
- Done that, you (The guy with the console) needs to turn off your controller, not the console.
- In the PC, your friend needs to connect the controller of his choice, and use, in the Xbox App, the Remote play.
- Now your friend (in the PC) can control your console. The guy in the PC has to launch the game, you (in the console) dont have to do nothing yet.
- Once your friend (in the PC) is in the game AND PLAYING, you turn on your controller again (in the console). This way, the other controller with be taken as “2nd player”.
- Enjoy. The PC player will be the 1st Player, and the Guy in the console the 2nd.
This basically uses a loophole with Xbox and PC to let two users play the same game online. It doesn’t really bypass the traditional multiplayer support, but if you own Xbox and PC and have the time to work with this method, there is no harm in trying it.
While this might lead to additional lag especially if the two players are in different countries around the world, it is still a decent method as a workaround for the local offline co-op in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
