Plans in the future for 2v2, 1v1v1v1 multiplayer?

Postby Zolkowski » Fri Apr 16, 2010 11:55 pm

Hey, I guess I'll just be the only one making this forum completely active by asking more questions.
Do you guys have any plans in the works for possible having more than 1v1? I think it would be great to have more teams ie. team yellow, team hot pink (No real reason for hot pink, maybe a team rainbow?) as it could make for some good chaotic fun, or even more strategy with team play involved. Just a thought, things are looking great as-is anyways! :)

Heya. I'm definitely planning co-op, which would basically be 2v2. I'm actually asked this question quite often by people who haven't played the game - I'm going to wait and see if people still want it afterwards. As for 1v1v1v1... I have some crazy plans for way in the future but nothing I want to talk about yet ;)

Just to confirm: you are planning for co-op in the full version?

Hey, thanks for answering the question. By the way, I bought the game :)

Looking forward to team games (and co-op)!

Edit: Any chance for larger games? e.g. 3v3 or 4v4? Or even an elite version where you only have one unit (and you cooperate with others on the same team, who also only have one unit?)

I bought the game too, and some of my friends who were interested in FS too were really disappointed when they learned from me that the game is 1v1 only for the moment. They don't consider buying the game anymore. :shock:
I'm not urging you to do anything :) but if you have what could be a vague timeline concerning coop, it may help me to keep them motivated :)

2 v 2 could be interesting in dark mode - or even light mode - if you can't see exactly what your partner is planning. Kind of like Bridge or 500. Would certainly add interesting tactical elements.

I guess you could add path markers for your partner - i.e. my guys are going this way.

You could have settings for whether or not you can see what your team-mates see - i.e. implied radio contact.

Any idea when this will be in? I want to buy the game to play with my friend. I don't mind playing 1 vs. 1 but he ONLY plays 2 vs. 2 he never wants to play against me only with me, so that would be huge.

EDIT: I would want it in Dark Mode, but I think I should be able to see/work with my partner. You should just not be able to see enemies.

Any news on this multiplayer topic?
Months have passed since last update.

Me and a friend have stopped playing, waiting for this feature. More of our friends won't even bother testing FS if only 1v1 is available.

I'd just like to post here (we've said it elsewhere) that coop etc will not be in FS release 1.0, but we're seriously considering adding it shortly afterwards. There's just too much to do on FS before release to do Coop properly, and if we're going to do it we want to do it properly.

1 year later...
A Humble Indie bundle and I won't even tell my friends to buy it, without any coop mode after all this time. Sorry folks.

I can't even remember if I played more than 5 games.

2 years...
I see 2vAI, a DLC, but still no other multiplayer game mode...

Nice waste.

Before Red was released there was talk about 2vs2 and coop versus AI and coop was included in Red. Is 2vs2 (or possibly 1vs1vs1vs1) still coming? I know you're working hard on the ipad version but maybe after its release?

So what happened with the 2 vs 2 or the free for all game modes ? are they still in development or they have been frozen in time ? i have wanted this since the first time i played this game, cause that would make it a really hard tactical game :D having to think not just for one opponent but for 3 8) great game i love it and i already drag some friends into it :lol:

The dev's don't seem to intend to do an update any time soon. Too focused on the app and other games, I think.
