PLATFORM: Xbox One
DESCRIPTION: Matchmaking works fine, but haven’t been able to invite or join friends in online play.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE: didn’t take any steps to get this issue, really, the game just came w/o Multiplayer working. I checked my connection and NAT type - both mine and my friends are fine and we have no problem playing any other game. However, we cannot connect to a game together no matter what we do. I’ve tried inviting him while in a safe house and vice versa. We also tried joining a public match with a random and I connected, but was disconnected once I invited my friend. Tried everything I can thing of and others suggested - even restarted the game and XBOX. Each time it just says failed to join and kicks us both to the main menu.
HOST: I’ve tried hosting (ENC SAINT) and so has my friend (S1lphium).
PLAYER(s): for about 2 minutes I was in a game with a random before being kicked back to the main menu once I invited my friend to play. All other attempts to play with my friend have failed, including that one, since he never actually joined.
SPECs: Regular Xbox one - not the s or x
I do not see this answered. I have the same problem. My wife and I spent $40 each on two games and on our Xboxs we cannot join each others multiplayer.
Can join random rooms but not together or each others.
Bump. This issue hasn’t been addressed.
[Edit: maybe I’m wrong here, since you claim that other games do work. However, I believe GZ is special, since one of the Xbox is actually hosting the game, while other games may be hosted on an external server.]
Perhaps the problem is that you both are connecting from the same network. As far as I have understood, Xbox One has issues with NAT and multiple boxes on the same network.
I got it to work with only one copy of the game. This is what I did:
Bought and downloaded the game on my “home” Xbox. I share my Xbox live gold/Gamepass ultimate or whatever it is called now with my family members on this Xbox. I then downloaded the game using my profile on my other Xbox.
Thus, my son can log in to the Home Xbox and start the game and I can log in on the other Xbox and then he can invite me to play with him in multiplayer. It’s fun! However, I can’t invite him to my game since (I believe) it requires a Xbox Gold subscription and I only have that on my home Xbox.
i have the same issue. When i try to join my friend, it says, “failed to join, or the multiplayer session is full” even though there is only one person in his server. I haven’t found a way to fix it.
