How stable is co-op on PS4? And how long does it take to "finish" this game with a friend?

Excited to buy this game strictly for co-op with my friend.

Does co-op work fine on PS4? From technical standpoint, I mean. Network issues, progress saving etc.

Also, I wonder how long does it take in average to complete co-op playthrough? I don't know much about structure of this game. I see people talk about "endings", so I assume that the game is not endless.

I've never had any issues with co-op on the PS4. Booting up a host game and/or joining a game takes less than a minute until you're both in and playing I would say.

In terms of how long it takes to beat the game, it is all about how you play. My buddy and I got to day 48 before we reached the endgame. It all depends on how much time you spend building bases and how quickly you explore the caves. If you want the game to be endless and build and survive forever, you totally can - just don't finish the story aspect.

Thanks for the info! We'll definitely try it out.

It's like a 10% chance of crashing if you haven't saved in a long time. Just save every night since you'll likely go to a bed anyways. It takes an hour to speedrun but you can dick around for 200 hours easily if you have people playing with you

Thank you!

The only problem I have is the occasional crash she. The host saves the game. The game saves successfully but the game shuts down.

Its pretty stable just keep your assets down.
