Is there anyway to create a private game lobby and play with just one friend co op and other two slots filled with bots?

I cannot get this game to run at 3440x1440 resolution. Even if I set the game settings manually to 3440x1440 and relaunch the game. The entire game runs letter-boxed. Is there anyone else with this issue?

@jellyfoosh I'm having trouble with my controller connecting. It works on my laptop but not my desktop. I'm using a pdp controller.

Is a private game with 2 players and bots going to be added?

I maxed out my class on multiplayer and haven't gone up in rank ever since, is this a glitch or intentional like some sort of level cap?

Hi, I can see that two people already asked the same thing I wanted to: When can we have a private lobby option, please? I bought the game for my son and I to play cooperatively, but other random players that join our game keep ruining it by not following our gameplay style. Everyone always seem to rush, without any cooperation, planning or consideration for other players. We will stop playing until this option has been added or until we completely forget about his game and the money we spent buying it.

how to remove the edges of the game? My monitor is 25 inches.
