We're excited to announce our new UE4 Multiplayer Third Person Shooter Blueprints, with a FREE Playable Demo!
New Version: MP_TPS_Template_170707
***VERY IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE READ***
- All Multi-players must be using the same version 170707.EXE
- Different versions are not compatible with one another! For Multiplayer, please make sure all participants have the same current version 170707 download.
- Weapons tweaks, added pickups and accessible areas, environment tweaks to keep players falling out of the map.
Complete Playable Demo Game of the Test Level included in the full UE4 Blueprint Project.
You and up to eight players can explore the huge environment for hidden power ups, some platforming and surprises. Take a stroll down W. Keystone Rd and visit Porcupine Ct. All while fragging each other with six different Main Weapons and a Pistol. Shoot some annoying Zombies standing around or having a fashion show, or any innocent bystanders for that matter. Or just go nuts Death Match style.
For Internet Play:
○ Run the MP_TPS_Template.exe (For solo game as well)
○ Must have Steam running in the background.
○ Steam>Settings>Downloads>Download Region - Typically must be set to the same City.
○ Anyone can Host a Game/Server. HOWEVER, the power/speed and internet connection of the Host can definitely adversely affect player experience/lag etc. - as usual in MP games.
○ Demo limited to 8 players - for above reasons.
○ Can play over LAN as well.
