I strongly agree about this idea and I hope that Klei will add it at least after the game comes out of BETA. Or if they don't do it then I hope that a modder adds it like that guy who added multiplayer for Just Cause 2

i know it was meant to be single player, but co-op would definitely be more fun. lol.

According to the official replies from the team they aren't going to enable multiplayer due to some reasons. Obviously it was built based on single-player system etc. But tbh I still prefer multiplayer even after I've lonely survived for 140+ days, as this genre of games is always better to play with buddies rather than alone. Penalty of death can be altered to all items lost etc. It can still work!

I don't think it would add to the game so much as subtract from it. I really think they should put that emphasis of lonliness and survival. If anything other players could invade your world and run around and cause havok.

But not if they only allow certain players to come through. For example, someone starts a game so he's gonna be the host if someone else wants to join the game. In the options you'll have a setting if you want other players to be able to join your world and once someone starts misbehaving you can kick them, so I really don't see why coop can't be added

As someone said earlier It cant be added because 1 the game was made for single player 2 klei already officialy said it wouldnt happen and 3 i feel it would take out the kind of creepy alone part of the game as someone said above

Why is this always the first response of someone arguing against multi? No one asked for the game to have 64 players running amok in full PvP.

With that said, the devs are quite adamant that it be a lonely solo game, with maaaaybe some meta async multi options like messages in a bottle. I want some private co-op fun, or something in the vein of Journey where you discover someone in passing (or ghosts), but the devs are pretty set on it being solo. I don't buy the "lonely" aspect they are trying to sell. Solo games are inherently lonely, so mission accomplished. That's why multiplayer was invented. Shared experiences can create so much more, and of course, it'd be optional.

I understand the many things the devs would have to do that I didn't even mention, one of which would be balance, but being a dev myself (not this game), I also see where the potential is. With that said, it's their game and they'll make what they want. Don't give into pressure if you don't want it in your game.
