The Network ability first appeared in TimeSplitters 2. On the PS2, the game allowed up to 24 players via i.Link or Ethernet LAN. Future Perfect allowed players up to 16 players on the xBox, but only 8 on the PS2. Network games are just like Arcade Custom games, with the Host taking the role of Player 1 who chooses the game mode, map etc. There are no bots in Network mode, and as a result Monkey Assistant cannot be played.
