  • Head to the ‘Social’ tab on the pause menu
  • Click ‘Social’ and find your ally in ‘Friends’ or ‘Recent’
  • Send them an invite to your session

Your chosen friend will soon appear in your game. The best part of playing co-op is that you can solve each other’s premeditated crimes, random events, and side quests – netting each of you a sizeable chunk of XP in the process. Don’t worry if you’re a lower level either, as the game will automatically scale enemies to match your combined power.

Don’t forget to tweak your settings too, if you’d prefer to keep your experience between friends. Tapping the left direction button will reveal the ability to toggle between ‘Public’, ‘Friends only’, or ‘Friends-of-friends’.

And there you have it – now you’re ready to save Gotham together. Be sure to check out our other guides as you take on Batman’s legacy.
