I feel that the 2 player count works for most people playing the game on Xbox, however, I feel that 2 players are not enough. some of my other friends wanted to play the game with me but the 2 player limit has kept them from buying it. if that number was 4 like the 1X i be able to get more of my friends into the game.
More people for xbox multiplayer
So i got the beta for xbox and have been having a great time with my friends. The problem is that more than 4 of my friends want to play on my server. So im suggesting a change that would allow maybe 5 to 6 people in total.
why is xbox one and s only allowed to have 2 players it kind of suck because then i can't play with all my friends
I was playing the XBOX One version of the Space Engineers Beta on the XBOX One S, which had the max capacity at 4 players a few days ago. And today, I hoped on to play with my mates but we found that the max capacity has dropped from 4 to 2. Main reason why my mates and I pre-ordered was because it had the capacity for 4 players, and were ready to continue our gaming adventures when it was fully released. We're now considering refunding our pre-orders and one of our mates (who didn't pre-order) isn't going to buy the game at all now.
Highly recommend to reset the max capacity back to 4, as we had ZERO issues playing in each other's games. If anything, we had more issues playing single player than multiplayer with all four people. None of this, 4-players exclusive for XBOX One X BS, because that's just money-grabbing, selfish and downright idiotic.
The game has four options.

Sigh, I can only have a max of 2 players (Myself and a friend I presume). That is Co-Op at the most and not multiplayer. This needs to be changed.
Why is there a cap at 2??? I get it for stability but why not add an experimental mode so more people can play like me and my 5 other friends? Is there a way to up the limit using a cheap server how exactly is this going to be fixed in the future? Will i ever be able to up the player limit above 5? I bought the xbox version thinking i could play with all my friends because i used to play on pc with my friends walljumper but only me and him had pcs so when i heard this was coming out i pre ordered as soon as i could only to find out i cant play with any of them because of the limit? Will the limit be higher when the xbox series X comes out?
i have just read on this site that original Xbox and Xbox one s consoles can only support 2 players online, and the one x can support up to 4, no where have i seen this before purchasing, me and some friends all bought it thinking we could play together at the same time and now it appears we have wasted our money...NOT HAPPY
i feel that the current player count is a bit low. its impresive that the game runs on Xbox, however i wish the player count was like the "bug" during the beta, (4 players on the XB1S, and 8 on the X). this would make the game more entertaining to more of the xbox players who dont have the money for the 1X, i understand that the 1X has more power, but the xbox 1 and the 1s still have the power to run with more than 2 people in a game. thanks for reading through all this, and i hope you at keen software house will consider this.
I have to recomendations to my lovely KSH
1) I know Xbox is not the stronger platform to make a good multiplayer with lots of player but 2 players online is ridiculus...
I hope you can upgrade It to 8 and maybe in Xbox one series X to 16 or something like that.
2) I played on the Beta multiplayer and I have lots of issues, when I was in a Rover and it moves I get into it! Sometimes it push me out of it or trowing me to the sky!
I hope you can fix that problems because me and my friend had an excelent internet
Thank you very much for reading, hope the comunity gives like to improve multiplayer <3
It saying I can only have a Max of two players and it won't change to More players
Production is heavily slowed from the simple fact being that Xbox servers only allow 2 players per server. Ideally at least 16 players per server would grant more potential for the game and actually have a chance for an actual faction wars server.
