Me and my mate have been trying to play co op tonight, we finished the prologue and were able to invite. Game says joining.... Then fails every time, anyone having similar issues? Thanks in advance.

Found an answer on a forum incase anyone has the same issue. Delete the game and re install it. We both did this and it worked like a charm.

Girlfriend and I are having the same problem and deleting and reinstalling didn’t work. Played the whole first act and now we can’t join each other.

I'm having the same problem again, tried a hard reset which worked and now its doing it again, re installing as I type and hard reset. I will update when I have tried again.

check you NAT setting under your network settings...Its a pain in the ass to party up in this game, if they are not both open.

Thanks mate, I am really not very savvy when it comes to these things, I will have a look and see. Never heard of that before so will give it a go tomorrow when I am on.

I was NAT open friend was moderate, got him to change to open too. Still no joy, such a shame, love this game but connecting to play co op rarely works. Thanks for everyone who tried to offer a solution. Fingers crossed riptide works better.

Only way for me to join him is to join game from dashboard, if I try from the game menu or my save it won't work.

I had to get my mate to start his game. I had to have not done anything, so I was still in the homepage. Then find his name in the friends list and join from there.

It's really frustrating, sometimes it works sometimes it didn't, this was the most consistent fix for us.

Oh great, cant wait to dive into co-op on this steaming pile of shit roll Despite all of this games' flaws on the 360 I remember co-op working well.
Grammar Nazi. I do it for the posts.

Co-op was so much more reliable on the 360. It's so inconsistent on the one. Hopefully you will not encounter an issue, not everyone does by the sounds of things.

Well..I'm pretty sure you can't play this one co-op on your 360 either, as it is the xbox one version being discussed in this thread
