If you are hopping into a Saints Row campaign playthrough on your own or happen to still be in a co-op save before inviting your friend, you might be wondering why you are getting a ton of join requests and invites. Well, that is down to the fact that Saints Row automatically enables this feature by default. But, this guide will show you how to turn it off so you can make your game private in Saints Row.
This decision is somewhat confusing but even if you aren’t in a solo campaign playthrough, you may still want to make your game private in Saints Row. After all, you don’t want someone to join you and ruin your fun, do you?
Check out the steps you need to take below to lock down your game and wall it off from other players.
Saints Row how to make your game private
To make your game private in Saints Row you need to do the following things:
- Open the pause menu
- Go to ‘Co-op’
- Choose ‘Co-op settings’
- Change session privacy to invite only
This is the best you can get to a fully private game in Saints Row and it does mean that no one can join you unless you want them to. The other options like ‘friends of friends’ or ‘friends’ will still allow your mates to join who are on the same platform family.
And, if you are reading this guide you likely don’t want that so just shutting down any option for people to join is the best thing to do if you truly want a solo save.
