Is offline LAN play available?

Recommended Posts

Me and my friend are trying to play DST offline because our campus internet is spoty at best, but because of the way DST is linked to Steam I can't even seem to see his game on our LAN.

 

Has this been implemented yet?

 

Is there no multiplayer outside of Steam?

There is no multiplayer outside of Steam, and as far as we know, that'll be the case until at least the end of beta.

Did you switch the "Show LAN" filter to "Yes"? It's on the second page of filters on the server browser screen. By default, the server browser screen shows online games--you have to change that filter to see LAN games.

How do I get LAN to work? My housemate and I are connected on the same network, but I don't see his hosted server when I switch the LAN filter to "yes". Instead, it shows up when the filter is set to "no".
