No dedicated servers for Uncharted 4 multiplayer mode
The multiplayer component for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will not use dedicated servers, developer Naughty Dog has confirmed.
Instead, players can expect a peer-to-peer setup similar to past games.
Lead multiplayer designer Robert Cogburn told VG247: "We'll still have a host, it's still peer-to-peer."
Naughty Dog's latest Uncharted game, 2011's Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, also used peer-to-peer connections. Cogburn didn't provide any details about how host-switching will work for Uncharted 4.
Dedicated servers are considered by some to be preferable to peer-to-peer. Instances of lag and Host Advantage are often reduced with the use of dedicated servers instead of relying on another player hosting a match.
Originally pegged to launch in 2015, Uncharted 4 is now slated to arrive March 18, 2016.
