Epic Games explained that it’s introducing computer-controlled bots that will simulate real players

For a while now, the game has been wrestling with the problem of making sure new players aren’t completely overwhelmed – while keeping things fair for experienced players.

Up until now, Fortnite has pitted players against other real gamers from around the world.

But, in a blog post, Epic Games explained that it’s introducing computer-controlled bots that will simulate real players.

They’ll work in conjunction with a new system for finding opponents.

When you log on to Fortnite Battle Royale it matches you up with 99 other players.

“Since Battle Royale launched, the matchmaking strategy for our core modes has remained mostly unchanged,” the post says v buck generator.

“Over the past two years, however, the range of player skill has grown considerably.”

Therefore, to make sure the playing-field is always even, it’s going to roll out a new “matchmaking logic”.

Alongside this, newer players will also face bots that “behave similarly to normal players and will help provide a better path for players to grow in skill”.

It explains that they “will work in conjunction with the new matchmaking system, and as your skill improves, you’ll face fewer bots”.

Because of this, the bots won’t feature in competitive tournament matches.

The game has been criticised before for its efforts to make things easier for newer players – which have mainly revolved around items which give people a leg-up.

There was the giant B.R.U.T.E robot it introduced at the start of August, for example, which it has now significantly downgraded the power of.

Regular players complained it made things too easy for whoever was lucky enough to get it.
