Satisfactory can be played in Single Player without servers, or in server-based Multiplayer, with up to 4 players officially supported, but with no hard player-limit. The game is coop only and there will be no PvP elements. Currently, there are no dedicated servers, meaning that servers are hosted on the machine of one of the players, while they are playing. But there are plans to add them, most likely post-alpha. As of February 2019, Multiplayer is in the alpha.
Server Options[edit | edit source]
When hosting a multiplayer server you can choose the following settings:
Privacy[edit | edit source]
- Friends - Anyone on your friends' list can join your game without invitation
- Private - Players can only join your server if sent an invite.
There are no plans for a "Public" option, due to griefing concerns.
Network Ports[edit | edit source]
While network configuration shouldn't be necessary, you may open these ports to aid in troubleshooting network connections.
- 5222 TCP & UDP
- 6666 TCP & UDP
Also, make sure you didn't accidentally refuse the Windows firewall rules.
