AFAIK there is no pause button in the keybindings.
I need to be able to pause the game when someone calls me on the phone or want to use the bathroom, especially during a purge. (cuz purges always happen right when everyone wants something from me).
I kinda find it jarring to exit a game, then reload it, just because I needed to do something else right quick as so happens in life.
And, just in case someone is going to start trolling with the “Well, there is no pause button in multiplayer… it’s working as intended. You just need to plan ahead. You shouldn’t play games when people need you.” argument:
- It’s one of a hundred reasons I play Singleplayer.
- All Sandbox games I’ve played has pause in SP, including ARK.
