How many players can engage in combat at once by platform? (PC vs. PS3 vs. 360)

They said 96, but Defiance's page on Xbox.com says 64. I doubt the number is set in stone.

During last stream I asked them about same thing - they answered..

128 players both for PC and consoles ::) - note its only for shadow wars... for normal open world gameplay you can play with hundreds !!

128 will make for some insanely good shadow war games :)

wonder if possible to have multiple shadow wars at same time. would be insane to have 256 players in an overlapping area.

They mentioned this during the IGN video the other day, Apparently the xbox version will allow for 50 vs 50 shadow war pvp and the servers on xbox apparently house 1000 players. They even had to get Microsoft to make a new icon for the box that says players 1-1000

console shadow war will be the same amount across all platforms. 96 was. Or 128 if maiyun is right

now for the most important question.

will the consoles actually be able to handle 128 players in a shadow war and will they be able to handle the huge open world arkfalls.

i am a pc player. just asking considering how ancient xbox and ps3 hardware is

There was already a game on the consoles that was able to support up to 256 players at once called M.A.G

And it did it bloody well as well. Gameplay was an acquired taste (I loved it) but the servers and overall multiplayer environment was a masterpiece on console.

i should think so. its not like 128 people will be on your screen all at once. given the maps are large the fighting will more then likly be spread out. given it only has to handle whats within your draw distance.
