To Play with Friends in Sons of the Forest, Select the Multiplayer Option in the Main Menu

When starting up a playthrough with friends in Sons of the Forest, you’ll set this up on the main menu by selecting the Multiplayer choice. From here, you’ll want to pick the option “Peer to Peer,” which will ask if you want to host or join a game.

In order to play with friends, you will need a friend to act as the host, so be sure whoever is assigned this role has a strong internet connection and will be able to host properly. Also keep in mind that the playthrough will be saved in their hosted game, so you’ll only be able to access it if they are online and able to host again.

That’s everything you need to know about how to play with friends in Sons of the Forest. As you can see, it’s really pretty simple to set up in Endnight’s game.
