Hitman: Absolution's "very important" feature is its "playfulness within the AI"

IO Interactive has had quite the challenge on their hands with Hitman: Absolution as they've invested in a lot of "diversity with the AI," as they wanted many responses to the player and their actions.

It's about players pushing the game, and it pushing back - "not just kill you instantly." If we try and fail, "then you could improvise" and still succeed. It's "quite difficult" for gamers to 'accept freedom'. (Hitman: Absolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Agreed... AI and Physics alone could "define" the next generation...

Pairing advanced AI with human physics (NaturalMotion), object physics (Havok) and destructible environments (Frostbite - but something better) would truly result in a sandbox experience.

I think it's safe to say we have the hardware at this point. Just need those backend game engines to link up.

In the meantime, this kind of AI improvement in Hitman will lead to an even better game.
