So where's the Multiplayer eh?

Just got this game, tried to play some MP and wound up with like 8 servers all showing 400+ pings.

I thought there were like dedicated DM and other mode servers? Are people playing or is it just me?

MP will pick up once the DLC comes out and all the MW3 BF3 kids get sick of those games and buy sam.

picking up is one thing but it was literally dead when I tried to see what was going on.

There's gotta be some server lists out there and stuff but why can I only see like 8 games all with 400+ ping?

I'm not going to believe that nobody on the west coast is playing the game. I see my friends playing it on steam!

Yeah, multiplayer in Serious Sam in general seems pretty dead.

That said, deathmatches in SSHD are quite fun.

One thing you can try (if your ping is bad for all servers) is start up a server yourself. Maybe there are other players with the same issue and will join yours because they will have a good ping on it.

Also, if you head over to the official forums (seriouszone) the guys there plan events and get together, play full games and have a blast. The game isn't dead... there's just no content for Coop Survival or Deathmatch modes which hurt multiplayer in this game badly from the start. Lets hope the upcoming DLC provides us with more multiplayer maps for each mode.

TBH SS multiplayer is all about the co-op and generally that's small groups of people who know each other playing the game privately. Pursuade some friends to buy the game and play the campaign through in co-op.

join the group, add people there, set up a server, play the DM

I played with people on US and Europe, tho the ping is quite high, it's still very enjoyable.
