Guide to arranging a meetup
This guide will explain how to connect or reconnect with someone on each platform based on the platforms you are currently using; for general information, see To connect or disconnect.
Make sure both players are ready and enter a level at the same time; if something goes wrong – “I entered the wrong level,” for example – quit the game immediately.
Basics for meetings
Journey does not have a lobby system or a play with friends option; instead, the goal of the game is to connect with someone you don’t know and travel with them, using various techniques to become attached to that person and have unique experiences.
On any platform other than iOS, a first run cannot meet a White Robe; to meet a first run on any other platform, you must wear a Red Robe. You can connect in any level, but not the first or last.
The video was created for the PlayStation 3; however, forcing a connection on the PlayStation 4 is more difficult, as shown below.
Two players will connect if:
Connecting with the Companion is more difficult, but not impossible, if you are in the same state of the game and have the same triggers activated. For platform specifics, see Specifics for PS3, PS4, and PC Versions. Additional hints can be found below in the “Connecting in Broken Bridge Section.”
Get your save-files
Backups only work on the Steam version since Epic Games version 1.59, and the community is working to find a way to delete all your progress and restart from the beginning. (2020-05-02).
We do not connect :(
To reenter the level, both players must press continue at the same time. If connecting in Bridge mode, do not use the Chapter Select option; instead, change the download region in Steam to the same as the Companion. This may not work if both players are connected to the same internet network.
Connecting in Broken Bridge
Most players try to meet in Broken Bridge to complete the journey together, but connecting is disabled if you stay on the ledge at the start of the level. Use the sign you agreed on to quickly identify if it’s you or someone else.
“Raving’s favorite” for Broken Bridge
We’ll try to get to the Broken Bridge level at the same time, which increases the chances of us connecting. To save time, use the quickstart-trick (use menu option “Chaper Select” right at the beginning of the Journey).
Is that you?
If it’s not a friend, it might be considered “polite” to dust on them quickly to avoid giving them the impression you’re up for a game.
Oh, its not you :(
If you run into another player while trying to connect with a friend, quit the game, give the other player enough time to leave the level/activate triggers before retrying, and try to connect in the next level to avoid frustration on both sides.
PC version specifics
The connection is also platform dependent; there could be a server issue, maintenance, or other issues. Since the new version 1.59 (April 2020), the long-standing connection issues have been resolved, and the connection now appears to work very well (much like on PS3).
