IO Interactive on Hitman's Dynamic AI, Staying True to the Series & the Contract Online Mode

AusGamers recently caught up with Hitman: Absolution art-director, Roberto Marchesi, to talk about the recently unveiled online Contracts Mode and cornered him on crafting a dynamic AI not only for the new mode, but also for the full game, and what it means to remain true to the Hitman series roots amidst a tough field of assassin competitors these days.

"The AI has different states, on what type of level you are. But what is very interesting about it, is that the AI -- how we set it up -- talks a lot among each other, it has to share knowledge," Roberto explained to us about Hitman: Absolution's AI systems.

"For instance, if the first cop finds a dead body, he will get alerted and start to be agitated. If there are no cops in the vicinity, he won’t be able to share this knowledge, so the other cops on the level will not be alerted. The moment that he meets another one, they can share this knowledge and they’ll both be on the lookout for you, but until that point, it’s not a hive mind, they have to talk to each other." (Hitman: Absolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
