Satellite Reign now has a co-op mode called Uplink which is in beta

By - | Views: 5,982
The very cool cyberpunk strategy game Satellite Reign now has a co-op mode named Uplink you can opt into and play with your friends.

It's cross-platform with Windows, Mac and Linux too, so you can play with anyone.

It does have bugs, like the possibility for all but the host to have a frozen world as you don't get data and they are trying to iron that out right now.

You can opt into the beta by selecting the co-op beta from Steam's beta dropdown list for Satellite Reign.

I haven't been able to play any games to test it out myself yet, as each time I try they are all password protected.

About the game
Satellite Reign is a real-time, class-based strategy game, set in an open-world cyberpunk city. You command a group of 4 agents through rain-soaked, neon-lit streets, where the law is the will of mega-corporations. Use your agents to sneak, shoot, steal, and sabotage your way up the corporate ladder, and take control of the most powerful monopoly of all time.

Each of your agents can be tailored toward your favoured play-style, while still maintaining their own unique specialisations. Shape your team into an offensive war machine, or an elite covert spec-ops outfit, and take the open-world city as your own. Article taken from

I've been on the fence about this game since it was in Greenlight. I'm not too excited playing turn-based RPGs, but this game looks soo cool ... co-op play might just be what it takes to push me over into buying it at last. (On sale of course.) ;)

Satellite Reign is not turn-based, though.

It's a good game, although it doesn't perform well under Linux (probably because of Unity). Actually, I've heard some say it's not exactly stellar on Windows either.

The mechanics of co-op would be interesting in a real-time strategy like this.

This game is only 650mb, quite a small download. I have the GOG version, never got into it, seems its got no story telling and is just a corp esp based game.

The only really negative I have ready about it is being difficult to control all the units due to real-time setup, there is no pause button in this game apparently so you don't get much chance to adjust to situations.

^ This.

I've picked this game up on day one but stopped playing it after only maybe an hour or so. There's absolutely nothing why I would want to continue playing SR. It looks great in the beginning but feels absolutely sterile.
