How To Setup A Dedicated Server In Enshrouded

Want to set up a dedicated server so you and your squad can play Enshrouded without interruptions? Our guide will help you host and join a server.

While Enshrouded offers a world of survival, numerous activities like raiding, crafting, and combat will be experienced best with friends. If you are interested in simple multiplayer, you can host a public game and invite your friends to it. However, the host needs to be available to play those locally saved public games. Fortunately, the game offers its own dedicated servers that will provide a seamless experience.

Players can rent an Enshrouded dedicated server and then invite their friends to it. Once they join the server, they can play the game 24/7 without the host having to stay online. Rather than traversing through Embervale alone, you can join your friends and dedicated servers are the best way to go forward.

Alternatively, you can search it by the server’s name and if it’s protected by a password, you should get it from the host. Now, simply put in the right password and you can join the dedicated server.
