How To Play Online With Friends

To start playing with friends, there are two options. Either begin hosting a session yourself or join a session hosted by one of your friends. Accessing either of these options requires you to click on the Multiplayer option in the main menu.

To join one of your friends, ask them to send you an invite by going into your steam overlay (Left Shift + Tab) and hovering over their name to the drop-down menu, which gives you the option to invite them. You can also access this menu by right-clicking their profile in the overlay.

To host a session for your friends, you can start a world where you can choose the type of world you want alongside other permissions, such as making it open only to friends or the public for anyone to join, configuring the number of players you can allow at any given time, etc.
