Gears of War 3 gets dedicated servers

Gears of War 3 will include dedicated server support, much to the relief of fans, CVG has learnt.

Developer Epic games has made the move in an attempt to address online problems that affected the last game, including sluggish matchmaking and occasional lag, we've heard.

Just need Multiplayer Beta testing confirmation and MP will be off to a great start.

BeaArthur2869d ago

Agreed, beta testing would really make this series as great as it's pimped to be.

darkmurder2869d ago

Yeah this'll be great for American's no doubt Aussies will get the shaft as usual.

to patch gears 2 for dedicated servers? Perhaps they can test the quality by using gears 2 as the basis.

Gears3 should be one helluva game, I really thought Gears2 improved upon what was already a stellar game in the original Gears, only problem was online but it wasn't that bad for me mostly cause I was addicted to Horde mode, with dedicated servers I'm expecting Gears3 to the best of them all.

There's no confirmation. This us just a rumour, nothing more ATM.

HolyOrangeCows2869d ago (Edited 2869d ago )

You're right. Stupid freaking article title.

"When contacted on the issue, Gears designer Cliff Bleszinski told us that dedicated servers are 'just a rumour'"

boodybandit2869d ago (Edited 2869d ago )

I just don't see this happening. I always wanted dedicated servers for Gears, especially 2, but I doubt this is true. I have a feeling this is one of those rumors that will end up being just that, a rumor.

If Epic was going to use dediated servers they would have done so with Gears 2 to help with the online issues it had at launch and some that are still present today, especially the lag.

*crossing fingers and hoping I'm wrong*

If they do this , I'll rebuy a new XB just for this game ! If not I'll play it at a friends house and stick with my PS3 only

tplarkin72869d ago

I was one of the early adopters that gave up.

You would wait for 10 minutes in matchmaking, and then get booted. Getting into a match was impossible.

It was so bad, I thought they did it on purpose.

edhe2868d ago

They fixed that.

... though they should'nt've needed to be in that situation.

Epic + netcode = mediocre.

tplarkin72869d ago

The way they wrote the article, CVG is confident.

S M N2869d ago

Does this mean it will come to ps3?

cos it only does dedicated servers

TheSadTruth2869d ago

This marks the first Xbox console game where having skill will be a bigger advantage than having host. Definitely can't wait to play this, thank you Epic.

Christopher2869d ago

That's a massive step in the right direction for solving the online issues from the second game. Glad to see this approach!

WMW2869d ago

wonder how 360 owners now think dedicated servers are better then p2p now that a 360 game is using them? because the sure didn't like them before this.

CommonCent2869d ago

I bought both Gears of War games on release and got burned twice as hard when I tried to play online. Without a multiplayer demo or beta I will not get fooled again.

yay and it only took..........................

HammockGames2869d ago (Edited 2869d ago )

......third times the charm.......I hope.

Lack of dedicated servers has been my only real gripe about the Gears series.

They damn well better not screw this up again.

unrealgamer582869d ago

gotta love 360 games they constantly deliver that triple a multiplayer experience that every gamers searching for. :)

Umbrella Corp2869d ago

Got to love Epic*
Fixed.Props go to the amazing developer not the console.Im sure they can make an amazing game on any platform.

You learnt nothing.

Fishy Fingers2869d ago

Rather contradictory quotes arent they.

Still, hopefully, if the internet jumps on this and makes a big enough fuss, Epic will have no choice but pony up for some dedicated servers. The game would benefit from it.

PS360PCROCKS2869d ago

Ya pretty moronic reporting. They learned something that's a rumor?

erathaol2869d ago

Really contradictory quotes. Cliffy B usually checks his twitter for things like this so I'm sure we'll have his official response soon enough.
