Raft is a very popular sandbox survival game played by a large number of people. The title also collects very good reviews.
Now, the game has received the update numbered 1.0. It means that the game left early access. It is also associated with a really large portion of new content.
So there is no better time to get acquainted with Raft. And the best way to do it is with a group of friends.
How to join a friend in Raft
Playing Raft with friends is really simple. All you have to do is follow the steps listed below.
- First of all, your potential game partners must be your friends on Steam. If they are not, you need to add them.
- Next, one of the players must start by loading the game or starting a new session in a freshly generated world.
- Once you have started the game, your friends should see the "Join World" option in Raft's main menu.
- Once selected, a session started by one of your friends will appear on your screens. All you have to do is select it and join the game.
How many people can you play Raft with
Games with multiplayer modes usually have a limit on the number of people who can play together. However, this does not apply to Raft. This game has a rather liberal approach to the issue.
In fact, the work of Redbeet Interactive does not have a limit of players at all. The creators confirmed that their maximum number depends only on the capabilities of the computer of the person who hosts the game.
Nothing stands in the way of encouraging a large group of friends to play together. Of course, if you have the right hardware.
It is also worth remembering that as far as the game doesn't have a limit in multiplayer mode, it doesn't have mechanics balancing the gameplay. Trying to survive on a single raft with a ton of other people can therefore be a really big challenge. No one will forbid you from trying, however.
