Multiplayer functionality exists within Astroneer for up to 4 players using clients on the same platform. (Windows Store and Xbox can play with each other)

Be aware that:

  • Playing in multiplayer mode is still potentially very buggy and should only ever be attempted when both using the exact same version of the game.
  • The host of the game may experience increased performance issues due to their machine having to process a great deal more information.

Steam Users

Steam users can only join games of those on their friends list. To do so one player needs to start a game and then others need to use their Steam interfaces to join.

As of Yet for a lot of players this function does not work.

Xbox & Windows 10 Crossplay

To invite another player to your game, you have in to invite them to your game through the Xbox party feature on either the Windows Xbox app or Xbox.

Once they accept the invite it will redirect them to your game. They will be able to tell if they are connected once they see a little house icon on the planet. However, with the new recent patch that just came out, this makes it harder to invite your friends, we recommend the Xbox player hosts and invites the PC user. If this doesn't work, have both people restart their systems.

Finding other players

On the Official Astroneer Discord server, see the #player_search channel to find players. Find your platform, and just post a message in the channel, and other players will message you back.

Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.
