Split screen is confirmed, but the number of people it will allow isn't. I'd guess two.


Two Player Split Screen is confirmed.

Frankie made another vauge allusion to additional features in the Beta that have me stumped.

and remember guys, even though it's matchmaking only, you can still enter some playlists as a team - and there are some other social additions should make it easier to stick together.

Social features that help groups stay together? I'm on board with Voc's speculation regarding ad-hoc custom games (fill up the party), but this one I can't begin to fathom.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you can probably keep an entire game (8-16 players) together for unranked matchmaking (hence the "certain playlists"). ...Or something.

You're not out on a limb. I've been here for a few weeks now:

We probably won't get that lucky, but our version of Matchmaking may have a special feature so that it simulates custom games without giving players the actual feature...meaning you can play with your friends and not with any strangers. This can already be done, somewhat, by gaining a party that equals the total amount of players needed for a specific unranked hopper and entering (i.e. Team Training is 4v4, so if you have eight players, matchmaking will create a room for eight and all of your friends will come in tow - matchmaking dictates the gametype and map).

- Voc, QFT.

I have my last one this thursday. I won't be getting wasted, but I understand the desire to do so.

By all means go out and get smashed, but make sure you play with us afterwards. I've always wanted to know what drunk British people sound like first hand.

Exactly what I was going to do, except I was going to use Snatch. The part where the Pikeys get fucking waylayed.
