PSA: Matchmaking Issues Resolved

LATEST: The cause of the official server issues has been found and resolved we believe. We are keeping an eye on it, but players should no longer see the issues they were experiencing in matchmaking.

Original:

We are taking them offline as we test an issue (some players are having matchmaking difficulties) that may have been triggered by these being flagged live for the beta builds. Once we know more this message will be updated.

If all is well, we expect this to last approximately half an hour. If all is not well, they will be unavailable for some time.

Killing Floor 2 - Epic Online Services Beta

  • 25,266

Hello Killing Floor Community,

It’s been our goal from the outset that Killing Floor 2 can be played and shared with as many players across the globe. To that end, we’re happy to announce that Killing Floor 2 will be coming soon to the Epic Games Store. To ensure that we don’t divide the PC player base, we’ve worked hard to enable cross-play and cross-invite between Steam and EGS versions of the game so that the entire PC community can play together. To enable this functionality you may notice there will be updates in-game to our Invite UI and that we have migrated our VOIP systems to utilize Vivox so that voice chat is possible across platforms. Additionally, for cross-play to function, we have leveraged the power of Epic’s Online Backend Services known as EOS into the PC version of the game as part of our matchmaking and server logic. We understand that we will raise some questions so we would like to be upfront with some of the big ones.

You mentioned Epic Online Services...
