Yes but the current map is calibrated for 100 players. I think anything over 120-150~ would be Overkill.

Epic, we need more maps...

I disagree. Keep one map, but make it bigger. If a larger island and amount of players does not work then eliminate it.

*Spoilers* Just like tilted tower...*Spoilers*

Mavericks is trying to get 400 players and 1000 player hubs

PC, I could see that happening.. not so much on console.

crazychris4124217d ago

Who knows on PC too. They are claiming destructible environments, fires that spread, tracking footprints, AI wildlife, dynamic weather with the great graphics of Cryengine. That's a lot of stuff for the server to handle.

Cryengine? Good luck with that.

The game runs fine on. Mobile as is, I don't think it's such a daunting task only can be achieved on the savior PC platform.

MAG did 256 players on PS3.

I hope you know ts not all about power of a console but the development of the actual game too... you can get 500 players in a map on a cellphone game if you develop it right..

With all the stuff they're trying to do, I don't see how they can pull it off with 400 players.

Tilted Towers really about to be poppin lOl

TheGamez100217d ago

And maybe 5-6ppl in a party? Tons of my friends play so thatd be epic.

Chris_Wray217d ago

While over 100 sounds good, I'm more than a little surprised they haven't gone for a smaller game as well, say 50 on the smaller starter island. I like the save the world mode as well so integrating it in more would be great.

XisThatKid217d ago

Especially since it's going free to play as well
