Shadows of Soldiers

Project Title:

Description:

  • Shadows of Soldiers is a 3rd person online multiplayer shooter. The game will involve a match, 8v8, playing on a capture point system map. There will be 4 classes a character can close from: Recon, Assault, Engineer, and Specialist. Each class will have special abilities such as EMP, cloak, heat suppression, etc that they can use throughout the match that will allow them to capture the point and move on to the next one. There are 5 zones total, A - E, and each team has 2 zones precaptured. Zone C will be fought over and each zone must be captured in alphabetical order.

Current Project Status:

  • Currently in the project we are able to all connect peer to peer and explore maps our coder has made. We have 3 maps that are made and textured and ready to be used. The cover system and camera system have been made as well. We are currently working on the damage system and refining our capture point system. Once that as done, all we need to do is set up the network properly so that we can play a smooth match either peer to peer or on a server.

have you really implemented a custom peer-to-peer connection with UE4 instead of using the built-in server-client system? it could be interesting…

Currently we are able to connect to each other using peer to peer and are able to explore any of the maps we made together in live time. We are doing all of this with blueprints.
