Multiplayer types

Type Native Players Notes
Local play
LAN play
Online play
4 Co-op, Versus
Four player PvE co-op. Eight players only supported in PvP and specific PvE missions (trials/raids. NOTE: trials/raids have been removed from the game for an indefinite amount of time). An unknown large number of players can join region-based dedicated Relays (player hubs).

Connection types

Type Native Notes
Matchmaking
Allows for solo play, as well as invite-only, friend-only, and open matchmaking based on mission selected. Always online.
Peer-to-peer
Most gameplay is hosted peer-to-peer.
Dedicated
Relays (player hubs) for PvE only, with no combat. Depending on region and availability, Conclave (PvP) can be hosted by a player-hosted dedicated server.
Self-hosting
Starting a session alone and with no other players (via matchmaking or otherwise) will cause you to be the host. Otherwise, hosts are automatically determined by who has the best connection. Leaving a game as a host will cause a host migration to the next player with the best connection in the party. Icons determining player order/who is host are shown on the HUD.
Direct IP
