Beta Build - Evolution 15 - Multiplayer VS. mode!
MP beta is now down as we prepare for the proper release

***
WARNING - Beta builds are not fully tested and should only be used by people who are OK with the near certainty of encountering bugs. If you just want to play the game - please wait until we release the Evolution formally.

***
We've been working extremely hard on multiplayer and we are now holding a public beta test! We are still working - making polish and balance tweaks and your feedback is extremely helpful in getting the game ready for launch - so please send in lots of information letting us know how you find it :)

To get the beta version of the game, right click on the game's name in your Library, select 'Properties' then the 'Betas' tab and then enter the code 'plaguempfinally11' to get access. You can then select the beta called ""publicbetamp"" from the dropdown list in this tab.

FYI - player numbers will be lower during the Beta than when we actually launch, so if matchmaking is going a little slow for you, get a friend to play a private match with you.

Some questions:

  • Did you win?
  • What was your strategy?
  • Did you experience any bugs?
  • Did you experience any lag?
  • How good do you think you are at the game?
  • Is there anything in the game that you don't understand?
  • Is there anything you think we should change or add?

If you have any technical / lag issues - please immediately get the log (instructions here) and send it to us at multiplayer@ndemiccreations.com (playing a new game will overwrite it).

Let us know if you have any other feedback too!

The beta test is live now and will be up until further notice.

Look forward to hearing from you

James

That is strange - it is working for lots of people. Can you please both email in to multiplayer@ndemiccreations.com - explaining what is happening exactly so I can investigate for you.

Hey there. Sorry to hear of the issues. Can we suggest you re-start Steam? It may need that to fully get all the data from the new beta branch? If this does not help, do let us know what you are seeing? Thanks.

After I start tinkering in the game file , I was just reset the steam , thank you haha

Multiplayer beta don't run on fedora 21 64-bit. Is the beta windows exclusive?
Solar Nov 21, 2015 @ 3:10pm 
I'm on Debian Jessie 64 Bit and the beta isn't working for me either, so I guess I'm either too stupid to do it correctly or the beta is really Windows only.

Single player broken in the new beta?
It would appear you cannot infect people playing as a Parasite in the new beta. I've played multiplayer with a few friends and that works fine. But now I fired up single player on Parasite/Mega Brutal and I'm stuck at 5 people for a year. In spite of having the infectivity bar up to about 70%. The only thing that increased infectivity was Festival of Love, that brought it up to 30 people and then it was stuck at that point.

Temporary? Nope, just tried it in another game

A new beta build is coming shortly - MP will be down until you update
NdemicTech  [developer] Nov 23, 2015 @ 11:07am 
Can you please try in the new version (MP70) and see if it works there? Thanks.

We'll look into it, thanks for letting us know!
