Players can host up to three friends inside their campaign universe, running missions together as a coordinated lance under the banner of the host’s mercenary unit. This options becomes available after the host completes Act 1 of the campaign.
Four player online co-op is also supported for "Instant Action" missions. These missions are either user generated - the host can specify difficulty, map type, objective, and other factors - or randomly generated by the game.
