How to join a Content Warning game

Here are a few ways you can join a game in Content Warning:

Joining random matches

Like every online multiplayer game, Content Warning also houses random matchmaking features. This allows solo players to enter the runs with players from around the world. No matter how great the idea of socializing may seem, it comes with a few disadvantages.

Every run lasts a total of three days, this becomes a great issue as you can never complete it without forming a lobby with the other three players. Every time you queue for a random match, you will eventually start from the beginning. This starts to happen after a few trial matches, so use your time carefully.

Players have often reported a problem during the start of random matches. Every time they queue up, they face a “Maximum Size” error. This error isn’t a huge issue as it goes away after a few attempts.

Playing with friends

Playing with friends is always a great time. To play the game with your buddy, one of you must host the game and sacrifice one of your three save slots. When one of you hosts the lobby, you will find a machine after launching into the game. Approach this machine and invite your friends. This will open up the Steam menu from where you can send invites.

You can invite your friends when playing with randoms as well. Head over to the machine and follow the same process. To invite your friends during a game, press Escape and invite friends from the “main menu”.

If a player leaves during the game, the host is responsible for loading the game. Without the host present, all progress will be lost.
