How to Invite Friends to Play Co-Op in MC Legends

To invite friends to MC Legends co-op, you’ll need to have your friends’ account names or have them already on your friends list so you can add them to the lobby.

When you’re continuing a campaign or starting a new one, you’ll enter a lobby that gives you the chance to add friends, which you can see in the bottom right corner of your screen.

When you go to Add Friends, a screen appears that shows you any friends you have online at the time or gives you the option to Find Friends.

Hosting a Co-Op Game:

  • Select campaign or Myths & Legends
  • Set mode to Friends or Invite Only
  • Enter the Friends screen using the prompt in the bottom right of the screen
  • Choose up to three friends and invite them to your lobby
  • Start the game!

If you have your game set to “Friends,” then other players will be able to join your co-op campaign after the game has already started at any point while you’re playing. If you have your game set to “Invite Only,” friends can only join if you invite them. 

In Myths & Legends, you cannot join a campaign that’s in progress. You have to join in the lobby to play Myths & Legends with friends.

Joining a Co-Op Game:

  • Go into the Friends menu
  • Select the friend who is currently in-game
  • Choose to join

Important Notes on Co-Op Progression and Difficulty

Progress in the co-op campaign will only count toward the host’s game, so if you complete a campaign as part of somebody else’s game and go back to your own campaign, the progress will not carry over to your game.

Difficulty doesn’t scale with multiplayer. Any difficulty that you choose will remain the same whether you’re by yourself or with friends, so even higher difficulties will be much easier with more players since it won’t be scaled up to accommodate more people being in the game.

With that, you’re ready to battle the Piglins together in Minecraft Legends co-op. For more content, check out our Minecraft Legends guide hub and learn how to use each golem type and how to find unlockable mounts.
