Mass Effect Andromeda is opting for a peer-to-peer connection for their multiplayer mode. What this means is that there won’t be a dedicated server available for their multiplayer.

This decision has sparked quite a debate on Reddit. Most are put off because of the peer-to-peer connection and think that dedicated servers are the way to go.
“Not ideal, but not as bad as when PVP games don’t have dedicated servers. A lot of people like to reference For Honor or recent titles, but for me, Destiny always come to mind as almost unplayable multiplayer because of Peer-to-Peer.” -ShesJustAGlitch
“Not as bad when it mainly is a single player game, but p2p is still shit for anything other than 1v1.” -sceptical_dick
Others in the thread are explaining that it is mostly in a game to game basis.
“Not many games actually use P2P because it is hard to implement correctly, in certain situations and if done correctly P2P can be better than host/client, but it always differs from game to game.” -dekenfrost
Before this announcement, it was previously revealed that the game’s multiplayer beta has been canceled.
