How do I activate the opt-in multiplayer beta?

- need to close and re-open steam for this option to appear)

Unfortunately GoG doesn’t support betas or branched builds so we cannot currently make the beta available via GoG.
Why is is so buggy?
We’ve tested the game internally but we’re releasing this beta to the public to get more thorough testing. With a lot more hands on the game we have a much better chance of tracking down and finding as many bugs as possible to help improve the final Multiplayer Co-op release when it’s available to everyone.

How do I use the in-game Chat?
Press ENTER on your keyboard, enter your text and then press ENTER again to submit your message.
What port does Satellite Reign use?
7777 However internet games use the Unity Relay server so this should not be relevant.
Why can't I find servers/connect to servers?
Ensure that your Firewall (Windows or otherwise) is not blocking the Satellite Reign EXE file.
I don’t have 3 friends to play Co-Op with?
That’s not really a question. Maybe you should buy 3 more copies of Satellite Reign and give them to strangers at the bus stop, that’s how you make lifelong friendships and influence people.
Where are my pants?
Good question, stop staring at me and give me back my baby oil.
