    Can FIVE of us play Alien Swarm

    If I host a game, can I have myself and four friends (five of us) all playing at the same time?

    The reason I ask is I tested setting up a hosted game with just myself, and even though I set the number of players to 8, I could only select 3 NPC soldiers, so there only four of us in effect?

    From memory when there are 5 (or more) actual human player the maximum limit is extended. Someone who actually has played Alien Swarm in the last year or two should be able to confirm this?

    You can play with up to 8 people. The AI's can be selected so you always have 4 marines (once you've got 4 or more people in the game, you're limited to one marine each.)
    It's not my fault everything you like is terrible.
