Multi-Player Gaming

The internet has given us many things, and revolutionized the way we are entertained. One of these ways is gaming, and the advancement we have seen in multi-player gaming. With greater Internet speeds and more powerful gaming systems, the future looks very good indeed.

To look at the types of games available for multi-player we just have to look at the Xbox One PlayStation 4 which are designed from the ground up to allow players to play over the Internet. With games like Overwatch we see people from all over the world doing battle against each other. Even entering Competitive Play to see who are the best.

The rise of mobile gaming has also seen a rise in multi-player play. With players challenging each other in games like Candy Crush Saga, this may not be multi-player in a traditional sense, but the ability to challenge friends is always fun. How about bingo games for an example? Extending from games like this there are also game that look to bring like-minded fans of the game together to do battle in filling their card first.

This is the power of multi-player gaming and why it has revolutionized the way we play games. It has had an effect on solo-play, but in a positive way. We don’t need to play against other people to challenge them, with points being recorded all over the world, allowing us to challenge them to show who is the most skilled at the latest games.

The future of multi-player games will be interesting, especially with the rise of new technology like augmented reality and virtual reality. One of the most popular games at the moment, Pokemon Go has people going crazy all over the world looking for the creatures in “real-world” locations, with augmented reality setting the Pokemon free on the streets.

Virtual reality will also play a big part in multi-player games, though at this point the technology has some way to go. It won’t be long though before we do battle in the worlds created for us.

Multi-player gaming is here to stay and will get better and better as technology improves. With no sign of the evolution of the technology around us slowing, this means that the future is a very exciting place for gamers all around the world.
