Let players join your multiplayer game without an invite

Multiplayer games like Far Cry 6 let other players join your game directly from your profile without an invite from you. This feature, available only in select games, is off by default.

To enable it, go into your privacy settings under "Your activity" and then "Current game" and then turn on Join your current game. To change who can join games from your profile, choose All players or Friends. Only players in the group you select will be able to join your game.

Stop players from joining

If you don't want other players to join your game without an invite, go into your privacy settings under "Your activity" and then "Current game" and then turn off Join your current game. You can also select Only you or Private in the dropdown menu.
