PUBG is going to be adding bots in public matches, no doubt for newcomers.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (AKA PUBG) is looking to add bots for newcomers in public matches. This is no doubt to draw more players into the scene as they’ve been overshadowed by the much larger Epic Games title, Fortnite, which has had issues as of late with its bot inclusions. Season 7 of this three-year-old battle royale has some pretty hardcore players, making getting into the game slightly more frustrating.
PUBG‘s 7.1 update will add these bots to consoles and will hopefully allow some lower level players to get some much-needed practice. Even though playing against bots can give you some practice, it seems they’re well aware it isn’t the end-all-be-all of being good at a game.
In a blog post, they went over some of the things players should know about the bots, such as its movement, shooting, and looting. They’re claiming they’ve been designed to replicate human behavior.
Bots can have both positive or negative effects on a game depending on how well it is programmed, so let’s go over some of the things we’ve been considering when programming these artificial aggressors.
Will This Work?
It’s impossible to know without it being in the world. The big thing to consider is there’s a human variable when playing against actual players.
Nevertheless, if you’re wanting to learn the basics of the game and don’t feel like dying time and time again, these bots might be able to help with that. Wheather PUBG will see the same issues that Fortnite is, though, can only be answered in due time.
The console servers will be down on April 27, 10 PM PDT. After that, the Cold Front Survival Pass will be available.
What do you think? Will PUBG suffer from the same issues that Fortnite did? Tell us below!
