Unreal Engine Trailer

There's a new trailer showing off the future of the Unreal Engine 3 on Kotaku. The clip includes a number of DirectX 11 features and more updated graphical goodness. There's also an article on Gizmodo where Epic's Tim Sweeney and Mark Rein discuss the engine's future and their mobile aspirations.

What happens if you increase enemy AI? Do you think they'll magically be able to live longer?


uhhh.... yes? Imagine having every enemy in a game be another human player (one that isn't awful) and try telling me they wouldn't provide more of a challenge. People do stupid shit sometimes but bots do stupid shit most of the time.

Here's a simple scenario. What if an enemy in a game sees the player before the player sees him? What would a person do?

Attempt to snipe?
Set up an ambush/trap?
Sneak up on him?

Those are all sensible things a person might think to do. Bots never do any of them. Bots just notice the player, most likely shout something, and start firing haphazardly. Replace any enemy in any shooter with a cardboard cutout and the experience wouldn't change a bit.
