It has been announced that at PlayStation Experience the makers of Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Treyarch, will be talking about the game. They say that they will be talking about what they did with the AI and how it could affect future games. One of Activation’s members said that the team of Treyarch had to completely change the AI technology of the game to improve it.
CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III NEEDS PROPER AI LIKE ANY OTHER GAME
For anybody who does not know, AI stands for artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence is one of the most important game features a game can have. Call of Duty: Black Ops III, just like any other game, needs to have smart AI for it to be successful. Artificial intelligence is basically how the computers react and play. AI has nothing to do with human play, but AI is used for enemies, partners that are not human players, etc. Basically, poor AI in a game ends up being very frustrating due to the increase of difficulty it will provide. Some people like more difficult games, but improper AI is not a good type of difficulty.
CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III TO BE TALKED ABOUT AT PLAYSTATION EXPERIENCE
Members of the design team behind Call of Duty have stated that they are going to be talking about the artificial intelligence, among other things at PlayStation Experience. They announced that it will take place on Saturday, December 5th in San Francisco at the Moscone West Hall. It has not been announced if this gathering will be streamed online or not, but anybody living in San Francisco could attend if they wanted to.
BETTER AI WOULD MAKE CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III BETTER
Whether or not one thinks the AI is bad for Black Ops III is up for opinion. However, if Treyarch could continue to improve it then the game will continue to improve. It is a very simple idea, but AI really does matter that much and it can ruin a game if developers are not careful.
