Small bits of news continue to trickle out regarding Uncharted 3’s multiplayer, which was shown to select members of the press earlier this week. The newest bit that’s come to the attention of the media is that Uncharted 3 will not be using dedicated servers for its multiplayer. According to UnchartedCentral.com, it was Community Manager, Arne Meyer, that confirmed Uncharted 3 will go with a P2P connection, just as Uncharted 2 did.
While dedicated servers certainly seem like the best route for a lag-free experience, Uncharted 2 was one of the smoothest online games I’ve played to date. Granted, that changes from region to region and matchmaking was a little slower than I would’ve liked, but as long as Naughty Dog delivers a smooth experience, does it really matter how it’s being handled on the back end? Probably not.
