multiplayer help

Hello. I’m working on a mmofps type of game, and I’m trying to understand some parts of UE.

  1. Does Unreal Engine have a ready-to-use networking system?
  2. Would this system hold up to 512 players in the same map? (around 50-70km map).
  3. Can you link any resources about how to start with networking? I’m close to finish the “singleplayer” part and now, I would like to get into multiplayer.
    Thanks.
  1. Yes
  2. No Idea

  1. No.

Unreal dedicated servers are designed for up to 64 players. The MMO-Kit (referenced in these forums) maxed out at 147. I have read that the ARK devs want their servers to handle 100 players at launch.

  1. Yes.
  2. Yes, the player limit will depend on how powerful the server is.
