Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a much better game with friends, so here’s everything you need to know about multiplayer in this game. Local co-op is the main way to play with friends, allowing your friends to pick up extra controllers and enjoy the game together on the same screen. Online multiplayer is available too, although there are some extra hoops you’ll have to jump through before you can start playing online. Here are all the details on Sackboy: A Big Adventure’s multiplayer, including crossplay information and more.

Each player will need to sign into an account, but temporary guest accounts are available for those without a PSN account.
Additional players can join the game at any time, whether it be at the main menu, the overworld, or during a level. If a player joins mid-level, they will spawn at the next available checkpoint.
