Joining a Friend’s Game in Wolfenstein Youngblood
Your alternative is to join a game that your friend has set up. Either ask them to invite you, or get them to set their game to be open so that you can join it. For the latter, select Join Game at the bottom of the play menu and the game will search for friends with open games.
How to Play With Friends Using Buddy Pass
If you’ve bought the Deluxe Edition though, you’ll be able to play with friends without them even having the game. It’s a privilege that is tied to your account, rather than a code that you send to who you want to play with, so it can be used as many times as you like.
All you need to do is get the friend you want to play with to download the free trial version from your platform of choice’s store, then accept your invite as if they had the full game. You’ll both then be able to play the full game, even though only one of you has bought it.
