How to party and play with friends in Need for Speed Unbound

To set up a party and play with friends in Need for Speed Unbound, select the middle tab in the home screen. Don’t click on the tab on the left-hand side or otherwise; that will transport you to the single-player campaign. The tab in the middle is for the ‘Lakeshore Online’ tab, which ports players into the online part of Unbound. Online in Unbound includes a free-roam world in Lakeshore City and PvP play against friends or others that are on the servers.

Select ‘Play’ at the Garage, and then click ‘Invite to Party’ to see which friends are currently online. If you find people to play with, invite those individuals and then head out into the open-world.

Alternatively, you can go directly to your friends list on either the Xbox or PlayStation platform. From there, click on a name and then choose to invite that person to a party or directly into Need for Speed Unbound.
