Fortnite will be trying to build an even bigger fan-base by adding a new feature to the popular multiplayer online game. Fortnite Bots for the new players probably without affecting players with higher skill level.
Epic Games, who are the company behind Fortnite, has announced that they will be adding bots. The idea behind adding bots, is to provide easier progression of skills and abilities for new players. The new Fortnite Bots will be clever, as explained by Epic:
“In the next Season, we are adding Bots to Fortnite. They will behave similarly to normal players and will help provide a better path for players to grow in skill. Bots will work in conjunction with the new matchmaking system, and as your skill improves, you’ll face fewer Bots.”
Basically new players will be facing many bots in the beginning. Over time they will face fewer and fewer bots, in correlation to their skill level increasing. In their post, Epic goes on to explain that bots will not be part of Competitive Play. That means experienced, skilled players will never notice this change. Yay!
Mixed Community Reaction
The initial reaction in the community has been quite mixed. A lot of players have been left in a state of unrest, due to the fact, that they don’t know how this will affect them. Are you one of them? Then remember that Epic Games are promising that if you are an experienced player, Fortnite Bots will not affect you at all.
Epic Games are in the middle of a balancing act. On one hand, they want to ensure a steady stream of new Fortnite players, while making sure experienced gamers are satisfied and happy. Ensuring the progression of the game as a lucrative eSports title.
No matter what. Fortnite Bots are coming with the next Season and above all this is a good thing for new players. Honestly, we’re quite excited to see how this will play out!
