Play Subnautica multiplayer

If you want to join your friend’s Subnautica multiplayer server, simply follow these steps

  • On the Nitrox Launcher, select the blue play button
  • Once ingame, choose the Multiplayer option
  • Select add server and enter the IP address from your friend
  • Finally, enter your player name and pick a colour
  • Done!

Host a Subnautica multiplayer server

Hosting a server is also very easy, as the latest version features UPnP. Meaning you do not need to configure any router settings! If you have a firewall or router that doesn’t support UPnP you can alternatively port forward or use a service such as Hamachi.

  • Select the server tab
  • Decide for a docked or external console (Only visual difference)
  • Press start server
  • Give your IPv4 address to your friends!
