Dark Souls Remastered will have dedicated servers on Switch

Dark Souls Remastered dedicated servers are going to be in use for the Nintendo Switch version. At least according to the Nintendo website.

The Dark Souls Remastered dedicated servers will provide for the six-player co-op instead of the four in the original version.

Dark Souls Remastered Dedicated Servers

According to the Dark Souls Remastered game page on Nintendo’s website, multiplayer comes “with dedicated servers.”

The Way of the Multiplayer (up to 6 players with dedicated servers)

Whatever your motivations are to play online – collaboration or confrontation, support or betrayal – you’ll find your true home among the nine covenants. Which allegiance will you choose?

So why are Dark Souls Remastered dedicated servers important? It means much-improved matchmaking for multiplayer which will also be in line with the rest of the Dark Souls titles.

The original Dark Souls used P2P matchmaking and the systems in place meant that players would often have to wait extended periods to join a game.

In a post on Steam, a user explains how the P2P multiplayer works.

Generally, multiplayer is really restrictive until you have been in game for about 20 minutes, Dark Souls does peer to peer connections so it pulls people who are available(on the same server) and makes a list of them.

And on Reddit, another user also provides additional details

Dark Souls has that weird system for slowly building up connections with 20 players. Not only will those soft connections be found much faster (ie, instantly when logging on), it’s very likely the limit won’t be 20 now, which will help with finding potential invasions and co-op summons.

Prepare to Die, Faster

Dark Souls Remastered is the first Souls game to come to Switch and along with dedicated servers, it’s bringing an amiibo and portable play.

Remasters are supposed to be the definitive version of a game. Dark Souls Remastered is coming to PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One, however, the Switch version sounds like it’s going to be the best of the bunch.

It might not have the best graphics nor will it have achievements, but being able to play on the go, ‘Praise the Sun’ with an amiibo and play six-player multiplayer with dedicated servers is going to be incredible.

Dark Souls Remastered is coming to PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One on May 25, 2018.

The Dark Souls Remastered network test will be launching sometime before release.
