EA’s new games engine may boast human level intelligence


This trailer doesn’t actually say much about the engine that will be powering most if not all of EA’s next-gen sports titles, but it acts as an overture that EA recognizes the importance of capable artificial intelligence in non-human players.

I’ve long felt that AI is a stunted area of developent in video games, many game makers seem content to leave AI at the level that it has been for years. As long as enemies don’t get stuck on objects and make mild attempts to flank you or toss a grenade or two, no one seems to complain. It’s about time we raised our standards in this department.


We’ll see the debut of games featuring the Ignite engine on the Xbox One and PS4.

Sean started playing video games in infancy. He was not given a choice as much as a directive from his parents to be the best gamer on Earth. Sean was subjected to 10-12 hours of rigorous daily gaming throughout his youth, mastering the most complex video games and dominating online competitions. Sean's symbiotic relationship with video games led to writing about them for various gaming websites, and he is currently involved in sales strategy and analytics at one of the largest video game publishers in the world. Sean's mission is simple: Turn 100% of the human population into gamers, willingly or otherwise.
