Can you play Last Train Home in multiplayer?

As per the developers, Last Train Home won't have multiplayer gameplay. In an FAQ posted to their website, developers Ashborne Games state that they're "focusing on a single-player experience". This doesn't necessarily mean that the game will never get multiplayer support, however, right now it's not on Ashborne Games' list of priorities.

Given the apparent complexity of Last Train Home's resource management and combat systems, it makes sense that the studio has prioritised these ahead of a multiplayer game mode.

Additionally, given that the game is strictly campaign and doesn't have a sandbox mode, any multiplayer functionality that would come to Last Train Home would likely only ever be in a co-op format, so don't expect to battle it out with a friend in this RTS.

But there you have it, that's all there is to know about the status of multiplayer in Last Train Home. For more guides like this, be sure to check out the Last Train Home system requirements.
