Issues fixed[edit]

Inability to join for local co-op[edit]

Using a controller after game launch may result in inability to use its Start button to join for local Keyboard+Mouse & Controller co-op.
Avoid using a controller before the hero selection screen[21]
  • Launch the game and reach the hero selection screen by only using the mouse, then press Start on the controller.
  • Restart the game in the event of Start only functioning as the launch button.
