The Forest Adds Co-Op Multiplayer

The Forest Adds Co-Op Multiplayer

Endknight Games recently released their change log for The Forest v .09. This is particularly excited because this particular version adds co-op multiplayer! Now you can face the cananbalistic horrors with a friend; no word on who’s kid you are actually trying to rescue.

Here’s our first pass at co-op multiplayer implementation, expect bugs!

We’re really excited to see what you guys think and hear any ideas you have for either additional game modes or additions to the current mode!  – As this is a first iteration we’ve limited this mode to 2 players but expect to increase this in future patches.

As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in theDiscussions area of the Community Hub or send them in to

Known issues:

Saving in a multiplayer game will save over single player save game, allowing you to continue progress but not as a multiplayer game (working on fix for this currently)

Destroying partially built items can be glitchy! Try not to destroy structures you haven’t placed yourself!

Have your say!
