Two player tactical Co-Op. All the instructions on how to play Co-Op are here:
How To Play XCOM 2 Co-Op

Now let's you import Soldiers from your friend's game! Does not work with Ironman because of the save system. Both players MUST be in Squad Select menu when inviting. If you still have issues, then play through Gatecrasher and use a clean save.

If you experience any issues, please post the issue here with the launch.log from BOTH players:

Adding to what Dani said, just use Parsec to share mouse/keyboard and split units by gender so it's easier to know whose turn it is. During deployment, if you have 5 squad limit so you can't split units 50/50, then trade missions as to who will deploy 3 vs 2. It works well enough as long as you don't touch your mouse while your friend is controlling your computer.

Additionally, when hacking a tower both players gets a popup that appears to act independently, as well as the promotion buttons at the end. Does this cause any desyncs? should the player who isnt activing the hack just exit the prompt?

So far my experience is mixed... as far as I can gather, after each mission both players were supposed to go back to their own game, however the 2nd player got put back to the main menu instead.

Another mission the VIP we were supposed to extract did not interact with the extraction point in any way.

1. Is player 2 supposed to go back to their own save, or get booted to main menu?
2. Does player 2's units status get saved? Ie, promotions/wounds. If not that means it actively hinders progression as the 2nd players units wouldnt contribute to long term at all remaining rookies forever.
3. The videos say that player 2 does not get any rewards or anything, is this still true?

A friend and I were both excited to read that there is coop mod out there which is out of beta and should work, so we bought xcom 2.
Unfortunately there seems to be a huge gamebreaker: No huds.
If I invite a friend (deleating the last spot to invite a friend than delete the 2nd so we can play 2-2 each) and we start the FIRST mission, its written something like "teammates move" (we are german) there is no hud or the possibility to choose soldiers using tab.
If he s inviting me its the same problem vice versa.
We both put xcom2 into the exception (firewall in kaspersky/excepted program) but it didnt help.

Is there ANY chance to get this working probably?
We were so hyped first and now we are a bit worried that it might not work at all.

I am sorry if this questions is obsolete. Is this mod fine with WOTC? ty

@eratheon Cosmetics mods should be fine, but you'll have to have the exact same mod stack. If even one mod is missing, you'll get an error.

I know this is a stretch, but if a friend and I have the same Costmetic Mods alongside Tacital Co-Op then would we still be able to play?

This is a amazing idea wish it would of worked out. I mostly play X-Com with friends or family on 1 PC each of us with different characters, but multiplayer coop would of been a gamechanger.
