Play with Friends allows you to, well, play with your friends online. You can freely explore the various Lego 2K Drive maps with up to five other players, or take part in the various Cup Series modes, challenges across the different biomes, or race against each other to see who’s the fastest. You can’t unlock any new maps within Play with Friends’ Shared World mode, but you can access any of the maps you’ve already unlocked during your story progression.
