Description[edit]

LAN play is a form of multiplayer which is played over a local network, so no internet connection is required. This way every player has their own computer which is connected to the others via the router.

Setup[edit]

The players have to connect (wired/wireless) their PCs to the router and one of them starts a LAN game as a host. After a virtual server has been created, the others are able to join his lobby.
