I currently own A Way Out and gave my friend the free pass. Both on PC. Both Using NVIDIA, both in Japan, both with high speed internet etc.
Every time we get in game and I already have a session established I send the invite and it tells him he failed to join the session. Is there a particular reason for this? Nothing has worked thus far. Restarts, reinstalls, antivirus disabling, admin priveledges, nothing. Would like an assist please.
Sorry to hear about your issue and thank you so much for the detailed description of your problem.
I see that you've already checked out a few troubleshooting steps. Usually for issues with joining a game session we recommend opening dedicated ports on your network connection. Have you tried this one out as well?
And a question for the rest of the players, who also encounter this issue - are you also trying to play with a friend on PC or it's a different platform?
Thank you for your replies!
