Party Mode Online
There are three online game modes: Multiplayer Online, Party Mode Online, and Single Player Online. Multiplayer Online is the default mode in which you play Shroud of the Avatar in the same game world as all other online players. Party Mode Online lets you play on a game world just with your friends, and Single Player Online lets you explore New Britannia (with persistent works of other players) all by yourself. You may choose any game mode at any point in time and switch between them instantly without having to log out of the game. When selecting a different mode in the options menu, the scene will quickly reload and you can carry on where you left off. There is one thing to note: If you switch to Single Player Online while you are currently in a party, or you join a party while in Single Player Online, the mode will play just like Party Mode Online, allowing you to interact with the other members of your party.
