I might be retarded, who knows. But whenever I or my friend start a game, neither one of us can join it. It shows a "locked" symbol. We are both running the same version of the game.

The player hosting the game has to open the session for other players. To do so he has to load the game, then open the game menu (Esc), Manage session -> Session settings -> Session type. Session type should be Friends only. Afterwards Epic-friends should be able to join the hosts game. Alternatively the host can invite players. To do so open the game menu (Esc), Invites -> Invite Players. The host can then invite players from his friends list.

August 28th update: We've removed downvotes! One major reason is because we don't want to discourage folks from posting legitimate suggestions / reports / questions with fear of being mass downvoted (which has been happening a LOT). So we now allow you to upvote what you like, or ignore what you don't. Points have also been adjusted to account for this change.
Please use the search function before posting a new question and upvote existing ones to bring more attention to them, It will help us a lot. <3
