EVE Online brings out better NPC artificial intelligence
CCP’s Team Phenomenon is hard at work on some interesting tech for EVE Online, designing brand-new AI systems that are currently in testing. A trio of devs sat down for a video on the projects that Phenomenon has been designing as of late.
There are now NPC mining fleets that belong to certain corporations and mimic human movements and actions. While these fleets are tough, the cargo they’re carrying (including SKINs) make them a target for bold opportunists. The new AI is going to pop up in other places as well, such as in burn missions and with drifters.
The devs also spoke about the new Defender missiles, acknowledging that the community has bristled at the name. Check out the latest episode of the EVE Online Show after the break!
