Man vs. Machine achieves 999 player online FPS match
If you read this article last week, then you’ll know that a very special world record attempt took place last night. Swedish non-profit develop MuchDifferent hosted a multiplayer FPS match with the hope of having a 1,000 player battle.
Yesterday evening didn’t quite see 1,000 players, but it did see 999! Which, in a day and age where MAG had set the previous record with 256 players, that’s not bad going at all.
The game, Man vs. Machine, was build on the Unity engine – with this event serving also as a means of testing the technology for use in future products (be it games or otherwise). Here’s hoping a 1,000 players battle in Bomberman is not too far from reality.
