Even when not in co-op mode horror games lose most of what makes them scary when meant to be played as a buddy action game. Look at Resident Evil 5. An amazing action title. An awful horror game. Extra modes are usually welcomed but this is the rare exception. And, as stated, if it has split screen I will be a little more forgiving as that's my favorite multiplayer mode and rare today.
I think they said no split screen. I think EA doesn't want developers to add any sort of split screen multiplayer to the games (except EA Sports games). I don't know why is EA obsessed with online play.

No splitscreen is the dumbest thing... The only reason they don't add it anymore is because with online play they feel they don't have to, that and they have no way of reading how many offline gamers actually play splitscreen.
Why in god's name would you put in co-op, and no splitscreen.... Even RE5 was smart enough to do that!
