How do I play with a friend?
There are two ways to play with a friend:
- You can jump out of the game and ask your friend to jump in and continue playing for you. All achievements are saved to your profile.
- Invite your friend to join the game and play along with you. If your friend creates his or her own profile, then he or she can jump into the game or play as a Guest.
NOTE: Because Podracing is competitive racing, a second player cannot join a race that is in progress. If two players wish to race, you must select the second player at the beginning of a race.
