View Full Version : NPC's

05-04-2007, 01:30 PM
Im a bit confused. When I saw the first trailers and stuff for this game, I assumed the NPC's were randomly generated and pretty much all functioned the same. But after I read a couple articals about winning over the population I thought mabye each NPC does have its own personalitly, house, name, schedual, etc. like they did in Oblivion. So which one is it? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Well since the question hasn't been answered yet, I guess I will. Yes each NPC will have their own Artificial Intelligence. That means that each NPC will have their own wants, needs, emotions, and best of all, will all react to things differently. If you push one guy he might not get angry, but push the guy next to him and he may pull a knife on you. It should definitly be fun.

I do find it strange that they say without the power of the PlayStation 3. Seeing as how it was first played live on an Xbox 360 with all of the same AI... I mean apparently both Computer and Xbox 360 can do the same thing, so the 'Not possible without the power of the PlayStation 3' line is a complete lie...

Jade Redmond once said something about a misunderstanding with any PS3 advantages. Seeing as the first demo was running on a 360 with these elements and that only has three cores as opposed to the PS3s equivalent of 9 processors or whatever, I'd definitely say that it was a misunderstanding.

Well chewie while that was a great response cause it's true XD i don't think that's what his question was i think he question will all these people be their own individual people even when you're not there...

i dunno how to answer that yea when you're watching them they'll act normal and have their own stuff (chewie said) but what happens when you're not there? are they actually random generated NPCs or does each person have a home to fall back on when you're not paying attention to them...

OH! I see what you mean now. Now that is actually not something i'm aware of at the moment... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Ya, this isn't gonna be like oblivion but rather GTA-esque (or so me thinks).

that's my guess gta-esque with a sort of reputation meter(behind the scenes meter not on the screen or anything) making the crowd lean for or against you...

but that's a guess not a real answer don't quote me on this...
