    Peer-to-peer (P2P) and dedicated game server (DGS) models are both popular choices for hosting your game server. But which one is right for you? We have a brand new video (and companion webpage) discussing just that!

    The P2P vs DGS video highlights internal multiplayer experts at Unity discussing the pros and cons of each hosting model in order to help developers choose which one might work best for their game.


    Need a refresher on network and server models? Check out our Intro to network & server models web guide too!

    In the meantime, how much previous experience have you had with implementing peer-to-peer and what type of game or projects did you use it for?
