Hi. Currently, UE4 built-in networking is client-server. It would be cool for UE4 to support peer to peer networking in blueprints. The advantage of Peer to Peer networking is that that a server is not required. For a better performance, things could be instanced. For example, let's think of an online Hack n' Slash. You are in a map, and other player is in another map. That player streams to ...
UE4's networking code isn't really designed around a P2P model, but a client-server model. For basic multiplayer code that's fine, though, you just have one of the clients also be the server. UE4's documentation calls this a "listen server" (as opposed to a "dedicated server", where the server is not also a player).
UE4 does not support P2P but it is in road map, it's on the roadmap since long time and it untouched, so some day. https://trello.com/c/o7mHCkGK/263-p2p-support Still you can make session systems with what UE4 has and i think it is possible to make it migrate host, but i don't think you could do that with just blueprints.
How to make a game for P2P and Dedicated Networking. 1. First a bit of background: I am currently in the process of developing my game from the ground up to be networked. However, when I initially launch the game, I would like to not have to pay for dedicated servers until I'm sure that I will make enough money from the game to support it.
I have a full multiplayer p2p game working with UE4 Online Subsystem on Steam and PS4. Now I want to make my game cross-platform and I need to matchmake my players from Steam and PS4. But I'm kinda lost on that. To be clear, this is a example of what I'm trying to achieve:
In follow up to our hugely successful Complete Unreal Engine Developer course we bring you Unreal Multiplayer Mastery - as on featured on Epic's UE4 blog. In this section we teach you to connect your games P2P over steam. This game introduces Unreal's Online Sub-System (OSS) and shows you how to use it with the Steamworks API.
UE4 allows players (or peers) to host and connect to each other, but it doesn't support P2P as a technology or host migration. It supports a client/server model where the host is authoritative. The host, whether dedicated or client, is the source of truth about the state of the world.
