It seems that Far Cry 3 will be following a similar model in games these days by not having any dedicated servers for the game.
A Ubisoft representative on the Ubisoft forums has said that Far Cry 3 will not have dedicated servers at launch for the multiplayer. Many gamers may realise that this might not be much of an issue because Far Cry has generally been a single-player experience, but it’s still something that Ubisoft may regret upon launch of the game.
It’s a sore point when talking about Ubisoft products as many gamers who play PC games bought Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and also flamed about it being a console port. The developer on the forum said that “the online experience does not support dedicated servers”.
After receiving a couple of replies, the community manager, “MSV-Vextor” said that it’s not their intention to kill the PC community.
“Of course we are not trying to kill the pc community. We have simply decided on a different way of handling multiplayer. We weighed the different options against each other to see what worked best, and what we came up with worked very well even without DS's.”
The forum debate is currently rounding up to nine pages so far and if you want to have your say to the community manager, head over to the forum here. Thankfully the single player version of Far Cry 3 is going to be amazing and Telkom Do Gaming had a chance to check it out at GamesCom. You can see our impressions here.
