Crytek: Crysis 2 Will Have Best Game AI Ever

In a recent interview, Crytek boss Cervat Yerli promised that AI in the upcoming game Crysis 2 will be the best, most sophisticated seen in video game history. Although we've heard this plenty of times before from developers in the past, Yerli said that players will have "thinking," fair" foes. We'll believe it when we see it.

"We have the most advanced AI system in a game," Yerli said. "We think that Crysis 2 has the most advanced AI for both humans and aliens you've ever seen. They will be showing tactical co-ordination, they will be more challenging but not unfair--they will be truly intelligent, thinking, fair enemies."

He also indicated that gamers will enter a new realm of gameplay thanks to the almost-Skynet-like artificial decision making.

"I think from that perspective our gameplay experience will be very unique because on one hand you have a world that allows freedom, on the second hand a hero that allows freedom--but also an enemy that adapts to freedom and provides you constant challenge no matter what you do," he said.

Crysis 2 certainly "wowed" us back at E3 2010. Sounds like the game will truly blow our socks off when it hits stores this holiday season.

    Does it also apply to friendly AIs?

    (What's with all the "FAIR" War isn't supposed to be Fair )

    Unfair is when you snipe a guard from 600 yards and the guy standing next to him fires his pistol from the hip drilling you right between the eyes with his first shot :)
