Fortnite is Adding Bots


Quote:
The popular battle royale game Fortnite is introducing bots. In the game's next seasonal refresh, Epic Games will introduce bots with the aim of helping newcomers learn the ropes.

The bots will behave similarly to humans, Epic said in a blog post. These bots will populate matches in all playlists except Competitive. Over time, the game will recognize when a player's skill improves, and in turn, the number of bots in your match will decrease. Currently, Fortnite matches are populated 100 percent by other humans, so this is one of Fortnite's biggest changes ever.

Epic says the new bots system will evolve over time as the studio iterates and updates the feature, though no specific plans were divulged.

The bots will operate alongside the new matchmaking system that Epic is rolling out in the upcoming 10.40 update. Due to the fact that the "range of player skill has grown considerably" since release, Epic is making changes to the "matchmaking logic" for Fortnite's core modes to help match players of similar skill together.

"You will be more likely to match with players of similar skill, and as you get better, so should your opponents," Epic said in a blog post explaining the changes. "We will slowly roll this out to all regions across Battle Royale core modes as we test and monitor how it performs. We're excited to get this out for everyone to play with and will continue to update the system."
Gamespot.

One step closer to being a real game?

I hope they make it an option, and transparent. There have been a few games I have played where they have this style of system. It was not obvious it was happening, but something felt off after a round or two. When I learned I had been playing against bots the whole time it completely turned me off of the game. Especially when there is no way around it other than to just play more rounds.

I do not intend to play this game ever again, but for those like me I hope this is an option. I am a sink or swim kind of guy in these types of games. I don't mind losing a few(dozen) rounds against great players before I take my first win.
