Game client

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A game client is a piece of software that connects to a game server. The server provides the connections and sends pages of information back to the game client. Many clients can be connected to the server at the same time, which will keep an overall view of the game world. Each game-client has its own unique world perspective. An example of this could be to download a game from the website to access its servers.

Most game clients are a hybrid of client–server and peer-to-peer architectures.
