About Communities

Communities are places where you can find players who have similar interests and preferences. You can play games or have parties with other Community members, or talk about your shared interests within that Community.
You can create a new Community or join a Community that already exists.

A child who is restricted by parental controls might not be able to create, view, or join Communities.
