If they came straight out and informed us that what we saw at E3 wasnt possible due to technical limitations I think there wouldnt had been nearly as much backlash... Instead ND kept pushing this "revolutionary" AI that didnt actually exist.
The AI is still very very smart. Best in the industry in my opinion. But they took so many good features from the E3 2012 demo. I can't help it, but feel ripped off about it. I noticed a significant upgrade in the lighting. So my conclusion is that they exchanged the AI with the lighting.
My God, shut up about this. How many threads per day do we need? This is the BEST AI you have seen in a game. Ever. They're smart and ruthless, they try not to die.
Regardless, they explain why they had to dumb it down in the documentary "Grounded" by Area 5. It wasn't fun being murdered every single time. If you play slowly and not go guns blazing, they act very similar to the E3 demo. They run, hide, flank and surprise you.
If they really dumbed it down because it was "to hard" ND made a huge mistake.
I agree, the AI looked alot more interesting in the demo. Do you think maybe DLC could have smarter AI or something? lol
I am actually thinking of a patch. Isn't it possible to smarten the AI a little bit with a patch?
