How to Play With Friends in Grounded

Grounded is one of the 2020s most anticipated survival game from Xbox Game Studios. The early access game came out on 28 July 2020 for the Microsoft and Xbox consoles. So far, the game has been treated with positive reviews from the fans.  

As with all survival games, it’s always a good idea to have someone to help through the game. Given the kind of monsters that players will be up against, the least they can do to prepare is to have a couple of teamsters alongside. Grounded does support playing with friends. However, the early access game has not made it clear on how players can achieve it.

Unfortunately, current early access Grounded version does not have a straightforward method to invite friends to play Grounded. But there is a way to play together, and we are going to find out how in today’s article. 


How to Play with Friends in Grounded

In order to play with friends in Grounded, one person has to set up a multiplayer game through the main menu. From the Multiplayer tab, players need to select Host Online Game. Here, there is an option to select from an existing world or create a new one. 

Once that is done, and the game is set, its time to add teammates. Other teammates can join the newly created game by selecting the Join Online Game through the Main Menu. From here, they will need to select Search in Friends to refine the list view, which will show only players who are on their friend’s list. Then, search for the appropriate game to join. It is important to keep in mind that these steps will only work if players have added each other through Xbox live or Microsoft system. 

Several players have reported that there is a glitch with this method, and the game’s developers have acknowledged it. The only workaround for this is to keep trying a few times until it works.
