We're just about done with our update, which improves multiplayer connectivity primarily by allowing players to join games in progress. We've been testing it in-house for the last week, but as you can imagine with only 4 developers it gets a little hard to conduct a proper multiplayer test.
We're looking for volunteers to participate in a wider multiplayer beta test on Tuesday, April 1, from 4-6pm Pacific Time (and no, it's not an April Fools gag :-) ). Of course you'd be welcome to play the beta before and after that but that's when we're trying to get as many people playing as possible.
We are looking for volunteers who:
Already own the game
Can be available to play online for an hour on Tuesday April 1 between 4-6 Pacific Time
Are willing to actively participate in the Vector Unit Beta discussion group to report any errors or issues you encounter.
Understand that while you have the beta installed you won't be able to play online with other players who don't have the beta installed.
If you'd like to participate, please send an email titled "Riptide GP2 Steam Beta" to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your Steam Name in the email.
PS. Assuming the test goes well, we will have the update ready to push before the end of the week.
