Apparently, it will be "really hard" tell the difference between Battlefield 2042 AI bots and human players according to devs.
already preparing the game for when nobody plays it. jokes aside would be nice for PVE modes. don't think people want it in PVP there is just something special in the good old battlefield days knowing everyone is an actual player.
Id rather have a full server no matter if it's AI or players. Its annoying when theres like 10 of servers that are always full that you cant get into so then you have to settle with a server thats half full that may never fill up.
Same. This should help non-US servers, qeue times and more. The benefits far outweigh the negatives.
Yep, kind of the issue with old Bf games rig he now to. Cant really play them when the servers aren’t full
Exactly 128 players is virtually impossible to not have disconnects rage quits or unbalanced teams without the need for ai. Anyone whose played online knows how quick ppl are to quick and how fast it spreads especially when a team is losing
Battlefield isn’t really a competitive game in its design though. If adding bots to the match means the chaos can remain at an all time high, I’m all for it. It’s the smaller modes that are more comp focused and those I expect will not require bots at all to begin with. I’m fine with them being cannon fodder in a big player count match though
From what i know there arent any smaller modes in the main game. Ofcourse with portal mode we will have smaller modes but there we can turn off the bots anyway.
I am looking forward to playing bots solo especially in Portal mode where you can create all kinds of scenarios.
I hope they are decent, because bots are going to be the only way a lot of people get to test out their Battlefield Portal creations.
Based on their past campaigns I doubt it. The AI was dumb as bricks.
Last campaign I played was BF3 and the AI companions would literally drop dead at every checkpoint and new ones would spawn. Was pretty funny
Aren’t there bots in battlefront already?
You would think after all this time it wouldn't be hard to do
Battlefield 1’s enemy AI was dumber than the AI present in Golden Eye 64.
We will know from their names?
Not if its like xX_L337_PWNAGE_69_Xx
So bots will sound like screaming/swearing 12 year olds ?
That's bad parents for ya.
Still not better than advanced fish AI
So they will wait to spawn, steal a vehicle with no one else on it, just to drive it post way across the map, abandon it and start sniping people no where near an objective?
The only games where AI rivals real players is Soulsborne games, in my opinion. They are even tougher, sometimes. If they can do the same (which I doubt), the player base won't complain daily like in PUBG.
If they drop health, ammo, and revive they are already better than half of the players i’ve played with.
No they won't. AI with the necessary capability to pull that off isn't going to make its debut in a video game. Guess "really hard" is a subjective term though. Yay marketing.
Well I play like a bot so maybe I'll stand out more :D
