Upcoming multiplayer
Hey everyone! I wanted to do a quick post about multiplayer since I'm seeing some incorrect dates here and there.

At the beginning of the year (2014) the Darkout dev team will begin focusing their attention on multiplayer, though we don't have a locked in date just yet. I'll keep this thread up to date as we get close to releasing it!

Thank you for letting us know.

Do you have plans to add DLC and will it be free like terraria?

When multiplayer lands i'm buying :)

Please do DLC, I want a game like this to last, for the developers to be rewarded for hard work. Make some truly epic boss fights. Only issue I had with Terraria was how stale the boss fights were even with the mods. You guys have a platform for an awesome game here, please expand it!

We are too =[ It just wouldn't have been fun as it was at the time and the current version really needed the attention.

Will there be more content (weapons, suits, building blocks, etc) while we wait for Multi-Player? :)

Our fearless leader has told us we would be adding new content, although I'm not sure it's been solidified as to whether it would be incremental, or in larger content updates. I'm sure information about this will come out very soon after we are done handling the launch and making sure that everyone is having a good time.

Yaaaay! Multiplayer. And here I was going to post in the forums after seeing the intro videos "Multiplayer? Plz?" Now after seeing this I know that as soon as it's added, this'll be a sure purchase for me.

Only one thing! Online multiplayer, must-have. And don't half ♥♥♥ it please! This game looks with such a great potential.

Now, jokes aside. I've a few questions.

What is planned? Onlinne multiplayer with one of the players serving as host of the server?

Up to how many players? Will there be any difference in the gameplay if there are more players, of the sort of harder monsters for example?

So, I have some questions about the multiplayer coming up. I won't take anything as feature guarantees or anything, just how you envision multiplayer working. Is there going to be a dedicated server that hosts the world constantly or will it be one person joining anothers world or some other mechanism? If it is a dedicated server can there be a way to make it minimize to system tray? Vanilla minecraft serving is excessivly irritating with its need to have a window open. Will the world have infinite horizontal terrain or will you have a map size selection as per single player? Will it be PvP or teamwork oriented? How verbose will the server / host options be for configuring how the game feels? Any other nuggets of awesome you can think of involving multiplayer I didn't think of?

I am not a big fan of having multiplayer in every game, but if it will be supporting Steam play it could be nice. Having to host your own server or have others connect to and IP adress is generally a turn-off. But if it would come with a solid steamplay feature to create and save games like in CIV V for example, well that would be awesome. Just hoping that any work on multiplayer will not go at expense of the singleplayer experience or content.

Hello!
Can you tell us if the multiplayer be co-op? And if so, will players participating in multiplayer be able to save their progress?
Thank you for keeping us informed!
