Battlefield 4 Campaign Details

The Battlefield Blog offers a couple of high-resolution renders of a couple of Battlefield 4 squad mates to accompany details about the campaign Tombstone squad will conduct as they fight for peace all around the globe. Here's the intro: "The world is on the brink of chaos, China is the tinderbox and you and your squad are the inadvertent spark that could ignite a global conflict. This is Battlefield 4. As Sergeant Daniel Recker, you play as a member of an elite group of unlikely heroes known as Tombstone squad, navigating the turmoil around you as you fight to save the final hope for peace."

....also funny that the AI most games have is all stemmed from the AI developed by a modder for either Quake or Quake 2, i can't remember which one. But long story short, almost all FPS AI is stemmed from this very old code, as it's perfect for point-to-point.

If I'm not mistaken your talking about the 'Reaper Bot', and it was for Quake 1 I believe? Had TONS of fun playing with those bots! The AI was quite good as long as the pathing had been setup for the map you downloaded. And if I am not mistaken again, Epic actually HIRED the guy that made the reaper bot to program the AI for the first 'Unreal' Ahhhh good times and great gaming memories!

It's also why Battlefield 3 and 4 don't and won't have MP bot support. On large maps with air and ground, water and underwater areas you can no longer waypoint correctly. You'd need to code different AI for each of these situations. And nobody so far managed to do this correctly without waypoints.

You remember UT2k4 , these bots had great performance on their set levels, but making waypoints for maps is a mega huge hassle and takes often longer than making the entire map to begin with.

Also for the record, EPIC's unreal bots were indeed some of the best and Reaper bot is the reason for that. But these bots don't work with dynamically changing level elements which is why Battlefield doesn't have bots anymore. Destruction made it literally impossible, unless someone comes up with a really cool and cpu friendly way to make bots behave properly on constantly changing map layouts and situations.

You'll see this kind of stuff probably only when we have more cpu cores than bots in game. 1 core per bot would work really well and allow some insane AI stuff. Sadly.. you'd need a 128 core cpu ;p
