Playing with your friends in multiplayer mode or Coop definitely makes Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty easier, but some bosses or enemies are really tough, and one of you can end up dying. Fear not, though, as there is an option for reviving downed teammates in the game, but you can only revive someone only a few times, as indicated by the red bar above the downed teammate that depletes every time they die. And when the red bar is fully depleted, the player is sent back into his own world.
