I'll be playing with by brother a lot, but we'd rather just play in a 4 player FFA most of the time. I'm aware the beta is very limited, but I'd still like to know for certain.
Wasn't this already answered?
To answer your question (possibly again), there will be a private game setting. You can make a lobby, set any and all of the rules you like, and invite all of your friends, they have confirmed as much. You may even be able to make it open. If you mean in ranked FFA, I'm going to have to say probably not. Because if they were to allow that, then there would be people farming the experience system that this game has.
