Star Wars Battlefront: how co-op / split screen modes work

Star Wars: Battlefront indeed has no single player mode with story, but thanks to co-op missions, you have some opportunities to play together with your friends. However, not every co-op mode works on any platform, there are differences between the PC version and the version for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While you can play on the consoles also locally in splitscreen, this is not possible on the PC. There is only online co-op. The co-op missions can be found in the main menu under the point missions. Here you have a choice between three options:

Training: This mini-mission primarily serves you to learn the game mechanics of Battlefront. But don't worry you are not gonna get bored, because you are rushing as a scout trooper with speeder bike through the forests of Endor or air battle with X-Wings and TIE fighters. In addition, you assume the role of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.

Battle: In the 1-vs-1 mode, on different planets, you play against a friend or alternatively you play this mode alone against AI units. Here a player takes on the role of the rebels while the other represents the Empire. You can even optionally take AI allies. The aim is to collect loot through firings. The first team or player reach 100 points win the match.

Survival: Together with a friend or optionally alone, you compete against different AI opponents.

But that's not all! You can set up a so-called "Party" and enter with some friends together in the multiplayer mode. Especially, in the coordinated attacks in the game mode Walker Assault. However, in this mode, there's no split-screen option.
