The Party System allows players to form groups that move through the Multiverse together, joining the same server instance of any game with sufficient player count. Creators have access to whether a player in their game is part of a party, and whether or not they are the leader of that party, to customize the name and description.
A party has a leader that can move all the members of a party to the same instance of a any game.
Party Settings for Players
Party leaders can set a variety of settings in the Party Tab of the social menu.
- If the Play with Party setting is enabled, then the party members will automatically go to whatever game instance the leader goes to. If Play with Party is disabled, players can play different games while remaining part of the party.
- Parties can also be made Public, which will allow other users to join them. The Party Name and Genre Tags describe what their party will be doing and playing.
- A player who is not in a party can use the Party Tab to search for a public party that matches what they are looking for.
