Speaking to PlayStation LifeStyle at TGS 2015, Star Wars Battlefront Lead Heroes Designer Jamie Keen confirmed that the game will indeed use dedicated servers.
Let's just hope EA dedicated servers are as good as Azure servers and not like BF4. :(
Was Halo collection was running on Azure servers? Because that was a real mess.
BF4 servers after they fixed them up are fine, as long as you choose one near you.
Palebglod: Halo:MCC that was just a f' up by outsourcing work by MS and taking on a too ambitious project as a fanservice. See Titanfall for how buttery smooth it can run. Just plain amazing!
Hey off topic is anyone else seeing driveclub full game for $14.99? American PSN store if anyone looks. I have the game already but am I triping.
Nope. It's only $15 now. $13 for the season pass and $20 for the game and season pass if you have PS+.
Tis true! UK got the price drop about a week early, I believe. Now, we get it in the US. So glad, too, because I was waiting for a price drop (after seeing the UK) for that season pass. This deal is too good to pass up...for me at least.
Hallelujah, really? bf3, bf4 also uses crappy Hybrid hit-detection not full server side. Oh yes, EA needs to save money somehow...
Now we wait to see what the netcode is like watch it will be like hardline or at 15htz.
Yay! Now show us the game won't be shallow...please.
If you've seen any of the demos or read the previews you should know very well it's not.
Dissapointment of the year guaranteed. And the main complaints will be amount of content and replayability mark my words.
All the Battlefront games have been shallow.
Yes now Battlefront please don't be lame.....!
Do all Xbox1 games run on XBlive servers ONLY? (the cloud) If they do, then do EA's servers only "serve" Playstation/PC/360/ etc.? Real questions, not trolling anything.
No, not all of Xbox one games use dedicated servers...
I think it's up to the developers to use their cloud service Azure for multiplayer. It seems like Microsoft tries to promote dedicated servers by offering their servers at a better price than other ISPs. I had to look it up, but the devs at Respawn talked about it at the bottom half of this article in 2013. http://www.respawn.com/news...
That did help, 1st party obviously does. Certain 2nd/3rd party do as well. I asked because I used to work at Gstop last year before the Destiny Launch. The Microsoft Rep, said that Destiny DID run on XBlive Dedicated Servers, and asked us to tell that to customers deciding where to play Destiny. I asked him; Since XB1's have dedicated servers for Destiny, then doesn't that mean That the PS4 gets Bungie's server's all to themselves? Or at least only serving PS3/PS4/360? He obviously didn't know. ...and neither did I.
Not sure what that MS rep was talking about. "Enabling this holy grail of online gaming are two important technologies. The first is Destiny's hybrid networking design, which locates itself somewhere between the server/client relationship of MMOs, where the world you're playing runs almost entirely on a distant server, and the peer-to-peer system of most online console gaming, where information is traded directly between players' machines." http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... Both consoles use the same servers for that second part. "To get the network running, Bungie bought up a huge data centre in Las Vegas. "The interesting thing about Las Vegas is, you get a lot of natural disasters walking down up and down the strip, but you don't get a lot of true natural disasters affecting the landscape," says Parsons. "There are no earthquakes, no hurricanes, no floods – it's perfect." This facility then connects with various rented server centres worldwide, and with PlayStation and Xbox online infrastructures." http://www.theguardian.com/...
If it's multiplayer only, it damn well better!
its not multiplayer only
I thought there was no campaign at all?
There is no campaign but you can play missions on your own.
There's a bot mode. Also split screen.
How it should be
Hmmmm i wonder if any other big holiday shooters will follow suit??? Cod....
Interesting. Wonder how much it will work in their favor.
Well thank god for that... Kind of expected it to have them. Can't believe that after all these years that it isn't the 100% norm (looking at you, cod). But great, nonetheless. Don't mean to sound ungrateful!
Announces loudly.... cod on consoles will have dedicated server......whispers over shoulder..... i mean only private matches of course..
lol +bub for funny. that's so true
The downside for the PC version, unless i'm mistaken, is that they're not including a server browser in this game. That's considered a negative, if anyone was wondering.
I give EA and DICE credit for including dedicated servers in their games. Call of Duty is suppose to be the most profitable video game franchise ever and every Call of Duty game makes over a billion $ for Activision yet they still can't seem to include dedicated servers in Call of Duty (at least on consoles). It's ridiculous.
Question - Dedicated servers like we have a server browser in-game like the good ole' days? or dedicated like how Activation uses that word to explain them hosting servers for Call of Duty? And does anyone know if this game uses that battlelog setup which Battlefield's in the past have used?
Okay, great! No host advantage and such. But let's all prey the netcode isn't catering to garbage internet (giving the advantage and removing any legitimacy to battles)!
