The upcoming game Stalker 2 is set to use creature intelligence in a new way. This is thanks to its advanced AI system. In a recent interview, the developers of the game revealed that each monster in Stalker 2 will have its own unique AI, which will allow creatures to behave more realistically and pose a greater challenge to players.

According to a Gamersky interview, monsters will be much more unpredictable and dangerous in Stalker 2, thanks to their AI. The AI for each monster will take into account a variety of factors, such as the player’s location, the monster’s surroundings, and the monster’s health. This means that monsters will be able to react to the player’s actions more dynamically, and they will also be able to learn from their past experiences.

The interviewer recalled a moment when he tried to strike one dog and it retreated. Yet, before he could turn his attention to the other dog, it seized the opportunity to lunge and bite him. It was explained that Every monster in the game possesses a distinct behavioral pattern. This design choice adds an element of realism and challenge to the gameplay.

For instance, a lone wild dog might not immediately attack you, but a pack of wild dogs would likely view you as prey and attempt to hunt you down. This variation in behavior extends to all monsters in the game in an attempt to make each encounter unique.

In the previous Stalker games, monsters were largely scripted, meaning that their behavior was predetermined and predictable. This could sometimes make them feel less than threatening, especially for experienced players.

The advanced AI for monsters is just one of the ways that Stalker 2 is aiming to be a more challenging experience than its predecessors. The game will also feature a more unforgiving environment and a more difficult combat system.
