If you’re diving into the latest update for Sons of the Forest and wondering how many players can be in a server, here’s everything you need to know.

Sons of the Forest has finally come out of its Early Access, much to the excitement of millions of franchise fans around the world. The latest update 1.0 introduced two new mutants, Legsy and Holey, into the mix, along with many gameplay changes.

However, the core gameplay still revolves around gathering resources, increasing your odds of survival. Naturally, you’ll speed up the process and have a fun experience if you’re playing the game with your friends.

So, if you’re curious about how many players can play Sons of the Forest, here’s all you need to know about the max party size.

Sons of the Forest Max Players

In Sons of the Forest, max eight players can play in a world. While the title has a higher co-op party size than most games, you can still start a solo adventure, without your friends.

It’s also easy to invite your friends in Sons of the Forest, and here are all the steps you need to follow:

  1. Launch the game and click on Multiplayer.
  2. Choose Host if you don’t have an existing world to join.
  3. Select New Game and choose between the three difficulty levels - Normal, Peaceful, and Hard.
  4. A window will pop up and you can set up your world’s name, along with the maximum number of players that can dive into your world.
  5. Click Start and then invite your friends via Steam.

Additionally, you’ll have the option to set a custom difficulty for your world, allowing you to tweak your enemies' health, damage, and aggression, alongside the type of environment in your world.

However, if you’re interested in having a solo adventure, it appears Nightingale devs are developing an offline mode for the title.
