NVIDIA shared 2 Destiny 2 PC 4K screens on their press site. Meanwhile, Bungie said no to dedicated servers (on any platforms), but there might be character transfers.
A lack of dedicated servers could be a nail in the coffin for competitive multiplayer. We'll have to see how they can compensate for a poor P2P connection.
Well, the first game also had P2P and didn't have too many troubles. Of course, it would be better with dedicated servers!
Doesn't have problems until you get into hyper competitive players that exploit latency issues with p2p connections
Really? All I saw and heard were complaints. Iron Banner was the ultimate lag fest and there was tons of connection manipulation in Trials that would disconnect the other team. Anyone who still defends P2P should be embarrassed.
@Notellin, I agree. This 2017. There's no point in competitive matchmaking if it's P2P. One tenth of a second of lag difference will be a disadvantage to the player with the slower internet speed. When will these developers tell the real truth about why they don't have dedicated servers. With all the money that Activision makes, there's no excuse, the cheap bastards.
No dedicated servers and 30fps for a FPS is in the area of unacceptable in 2017. Halo 5, Battlefield, CoD, Rainbow Six, Titanfall, Overwatch, and Gears of War all run at 60fps and have dedis with the exception of only CoD I believe which is also unacceptable.
I loved the multiplayer in the first Destiny so I'm guessing it will be just as smooth. I remember very few issues while playing.
Character transfers would be awesome!
Why? All you would be transferring is the character class and however you made your head to look. Everything else would be reset back to zero.
they have already confirmed no transfers in the ign interview so ...
No dedicated servers, oh dear. Yet another game that puts more and more onto the consumers.
Does Call of Duty games? Once again Activision cheaping out.
P2P is a disappointment of course, it really should have dedicated servers. But at least there is no frame rate cap. Still need to see a lot more before I commit either way.
Even dastardly EA provide servers to host their multiplayer games. And they're the worst company in the world.
With the truck loads of money Bungie/Activision made on Destiny - dedicated servers should have been top of the list.
The least they could do with all the cash they got from Destiny. Greed has no boundarys.
Well the new game will apparently be 4v4 across all PVP gametypes, I'm assuming that should help, I stopped playing a while back but it ran fine, sorta...it really depended on how many specials & rockets went off at a time...
i am still baffled what they are thinking. a sequel almost never surpasses the sales figures of the predecessor. i just hope the diminished install base will be big enough for them to not act all butthurt when the sales will be disappointing. i wish them all the luck.
So no dedicated servers and later release for PC? Guess I'll save my $60.
This game is gonna be a lagggg fest.. Seams like they cutting a lot of corners for a so call new game...
