It’s worth noting, however, that its predecessor, The Forest, never received an update for this feature even after it was released for the PlayStation 4. Though this isn’t actually an indication of what’s to come for the sequel, it still doesn’t bode well for players that are hoping for its inclusion in the game.

With that said, players will only be able to join up with other users on the same system that they’re playing on. Co-op groups will also be able to support up to eight players, which means more help in navigating the dangers of the island.

If you don’t have enough members to fill up your squad, you will apparently be able to recruit a single AI companion as part of your team. Those looking to play solo will similarly have the chance to recruit the same NPC although, it’s currently unclear whether you’ll be able to control their actions or not.
