Hi everyone. My name is Andrew Bates, and welcome to my course, Fundamentals of Multiplayer Development in Unity. I'm a Software Engineer at Electronic Arts. Have you ever wanted to grab your friends and turn your dungeon crawler into a dungeon sprinter, but weren't sure where to start? Multiplayer development can be overwhelming, and it can difficult to know where to start, but we're here to help. This course is a foundational approach to multiplayer developments in Unity, and no prior multiplayer experience is required. Some of the major topics that we will cover include gathering requirements of converting an existing single-player game into multiplayer, building a low-risk multiplayer prototype on top of your existing game, getting connected by integrating your prototype work into the existing Swords and Shovels project, and harnessing the power of Unity Multiplayer Services to connect your game to players all around the world. By the end of this course, you'll know how to transform your existing game into a multiplayer experience in Unity. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of game development in Unity. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn multiplayer development with the Fundamentals of Multiplayer Development in Unity course, at Pluralsight.
