Soon, people will be able to test out My Time at Sandrock multiplayer for the first time. Pathea announced the open beta for the feature. It will run January 12-20, 2023. However, people who take part won’t be able to carry over saved data from it to the early access version of the game.
Following the announcement, a few details about how My Time at Sandrock multiplayer will work came up. This mode is essentially a prequel set before the solo adventure. People will connect with Qi to head to the Meta area world. The town management options will let you decide if people get their own rooms, what they can do in the game, or if they want to remove them. Up to four people will be able to play the farming sim together. When a session is live, people can build, craft, explore, or fight enemies alongside other people. There will also be co-op hunting commissions.
Pathea also released a brief video clip showing how it looks in action. It shows multiple people teaming up to fight an Apoc-a-doodle-doom and the Rocket Roosters around it.
