Smalland: How Many Players Can Play in One World

Here's what you need to know about the max player size in Smalland: Survive the Wilds.

Survival games are sometimes best enjoyed with friends, and Smalland Survive the Wilds is no different. Luckily, the developers have put together a system that allows players to adventure together fairly easily. If you’re wondering how many players can play in one world in Smalland Survive the Wilds, read on for your answer.

Max Player Size in Smalland Survive the Wilds

Smalland Survive the Wilds supports ten players in a single server. As of launch, the servers are all client-hosted. Players can join other players’ servers, so long as they are set to Online mode, which is done at the New Game screen. 

Player progress is persistent throughout servers, similar to how Valheim works, but each server instance has its own world associated with it. That means if you join your friend’s server and build a base together (outside of a Great Tree), you won’t be able to see that base if you were to host a new world.

All your unlocked crafting recipes, structures, and possessions in your inventory are tied to your character profile. You probably have noticed the save prompt pop-up occasionally, saving your character and all your progress.

This creates a fairly seamless experience as far as player progression is concerned. The only downside at the moment is that servers are all client-hosted, and there are not yet any dedicated servers.

However, according to the developers, there will be dedicated servers coming later down the line. This makes sense considering the game is planning to launch on consoles eventually. It’s still an Early Access title, after all, so we need to give them some time to sort everything out.
