    Killzone: Shadow Fall bots to mimic true player behavior

    http://www.screwattack.com/news/kill...layer-behavior

    Killzone: Shadow Fall bots will mimic true human player behavior, according to the game's director.
    Steven Ter Heide of Guerrilla Games explained several changes and goals for the next Killzone on the latest Playstation Blogcast. Ter Heide covered the game's changes for online progression, weapons and even expected framerate, but an interesting point came when he explained what bots would do in the game.

    “We've always had bots in our previous games, but we wanted to really have that bot experience transfer into the custom games also,” Ter Heide told Playstation Blogcast. “You can have those bots either in online matches, and they'll replace some of your human friends or you can play an offline match against bots.”
    This is nothing new for the Killzone series. Previous installments in the series feature 32-player online battles. If 32 players can't be found for the game, bots will fill all empty spaces.
    Ter Heide goes into more detail concerning what bots are capable of doing in the latest Killzone.

    “And they know how to play with the abilities, they know how to play all the different mission modes, they can deal with whatever customization you throw at them, and best of all they mimic human player behavior,” Ter Heide continued. “So if you set them to hard, that's a pretty good challenge.”
    Players who feel that bots sometime dilute the richness of online gameplay should be satisfied to hear such promising words. Shooter games are no stranger to AI issues with bots, so the success of Guerrilla Games in this area will be innovative and bragging rights for Playstation 4.

    Takes me back to my Timesplitter days. Nothing better than popping up a "multiplayer" game with bots. Epecially due to having no lag.

    Am I the only one around here that prefers bots to human players? I hate people, but I love the mechanics of online modes. I played hours upon hours of Killzone 3 bot modes. Played hours upon hours of Black Ops bot mode. Was left unimpressed with Black Ops 2 piece of $#@! bot mode. I wish devs would get the hint that not every guy wants to get online against others. I'm fine going against a computer.


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.

    I'm the same way thats why I said it sounds good to me. Too many ass clowns online especially in FPS and TPS games. I always just play botzone. I played with other people in KZ2 and just went back to playing against bots. I'm anti-social I guess. lol

    So why can't the enemy in single player play like humans??? lol Just saying any game I've ever played the ai is always atrocious and acts like monkeys or brain dead zombies or if you turn it up to hard there are like 100 of them all them like agents from the matrix ducking bullets and head shooting everytime lol.

    Its my biggest gripe about gaming....hard or hardest level is unrealistic as easy is.....and then trophy's....if a trophy isn't something pertaining to your normal gameplay...it shouldn't be a trophy. Like WHY do I need to search a damn forest for a hidden gem or something instead of just enjoying the game....if a trophy distracts from the normal story it shouldn't be in there.. just my opinions...lol

    It's nonsense. Not possible. We've had crap AI for a long time, and it's not due to a lack of processing power. The AI will be the same as all other games.

    Maybe they've learned from Bungie, Their AI for me is the best in the business.

    If a bot kills me and starts to tea-bag my corpse, only to be killed moments later by an ally bot, who then tea-bags HIS corpse, then I will be very happy.

    Or when they throw c4 on each other and start team killing...or best yet...all spawn as snipers and immediately find a place and lay down. lol....but honestly THIS IS BIG PR TALK. I would love to believe it but I've yet to see bots or ai act remotely human....usually its they have down syndrome or they can see through walls and have the aim of a gold medal marksman. Just give me ai that is aware when I'm shooting at him or run in front of him that can hit me if i'm out of cover but doesn't have heat seeking bullets lol...and if i sit behind cover will lob a grenade or try to flank me. TY.

    Bots. Who gives a $#@! about bots in an online world.
    I hate bots.
    So sick of joining servers in CS or HL2 or Unreal and they are full of bots. ITs a way of making the server look popular when its actually empty.

    Bungie has fun AI but not smart AI. A big blue guy will jump two feet away from a grenade, stand there like he is safe, and then die from the nasty explosion. If actual smart AI could exist, Crytek would have already delivered on that hype of next gen AI they threw at us with Crysis 1.

    From the other thread, the one with the video the article posted with it says this:

    What’s amazing about the first experience I had with the game is the fact that we were playing with bots. None of the reps at the booth told us this, and we didn’t realize until after the match was finished that they were having network issues and the mode we played was like the traditional “Botzone” mode. My friend Bovice and I were pretty stunned, because that means that the AI in the game has vastly improved, and for us to believe that we were playing a traditional multiplayer match was a mind blow.
    Though I imagine it won't be quite like humans, it may be better if they're not acting like dicks all the time.

    Don't Steal. Don't Molest Little Children. Don't Deal Drugs.
