Elon Musk Says This Multiplayer Game Works Well With Starlink Connection, Promises Reduced Global Latency This Year

Zinger Key Points
  • SpaceX's Starlink supports the playing of video games anywhere and support multiplayer games.
  • Starlink inter-satellite laser links will further reduce global latency.

Elon Musk's SpaceX-owned Starlink satellite internet service has evolved, and its utility came to the fore when Ukraine sought Starlink terminals to restore internet connectivity in the war-ravaged country. On Friday, Musk retweeted a SpaceX tweet of a video uploaded by YouTuber FinePrint, which showed him video gaming with a Starlink connection on top of the mountains.

The YouTuber suggested the performance was satisfactory. Musk had captioned his tweet, "Play Videogame wherever you want."

Commenting on Musk's tweet, a Twitter user going by the handle @IvanEscobosa asked whether he has tried multiplayer games. Musk replied by saying multiplayer gaming works pretty well with Starlink and that League of Games is no problem.
