We’re excited to announce that the new game mode, Non-Dedicated Multiplayer, is now available to play with our latest Patch!
The game mode will facilitate the ability to play as a client whilst also hosting the server at the same time. It will allow up to 8 players simultaneously on the server. Similarly to Single player, the host will have access to the entire ATLAS map and will be able to make use of the host settings UI to adjust server settings to your group’s needs, as well as additional enhancements in your .ini files!
Note that this mode uses your singleplayer save / world when you're hosting it. We'll also be working on a system that will allow players to import and export player characters and their inventories between worlds in singleplayer/non-dedicated mode, to bring your progress with you into other players' allowed sessions and back again.
Speaking of things we’re working on, later this month you’ll be able to get your hands on our new single server map: Blackwood, which will be available for Unofficials, Single Player, and Non-Dedicated Servers. Plus, don’t forget our new “Wild Pirates Encampments” system, which you can learn more details here:
So what are you waiting for? Put on your suits and dive right in!
