    Unfortunately, there are no plans for a Sea of Stars multiplayer mode. The game is strictly single-player only. This doesn’t mean you can’t experience the game together. You can discuss strategies against bosses and immerse yourself in the story while you share the controller locally or show your screen through streaming.

    According to Sabotage Studio’s website, its goal is to make “a turn-based RPG that would pay homage to the greats of the ’90s,”.

    While there are some outliers like Secret of Mana and Final Fantasy 6, most RPGs of that timeframe were single-player story-focused experiences.

    Perhaps in the future, Sea of Stars will get a multiplayer mode through DLC, but there is no evidence of that at the time of writing.
