Sons Of The Forest Multiplayer Limit Guide

Sons of the Forest have set a players cap of eight per multiplayer session.


Sons of the Forest allows players to join or host their own world with a maximum limit of eight players. You can also invite your friends to join your session. 

Key Takeaways

  • You can either host a world or join a session.
  • There can be a maximum of eight players in one multiplayer session.
  • You can increase this number using the MultiplayerUnlimiter Mod to 20.
  • When hosting a session, you can set the maximum number of players in your world anytime.

What Is The Multiplayer Limit

The traditional multiplayer limit for Sons Of The Forest is a maximum of eight but a minimum of two. These are the standard limits. However, they can be changed with the addition of mods. But I seriously would not recommend as you might not want to risk the files’ integrity. 

One such mod is the MultiplayerUnlimiter Mod, which allows you to configure your game so that a whopping total of 20 players can simultaneously be in any given world.
