Ways AI Will Transform Our Gaming Experience

AI is currently revolutionizing every aspect of our lives. It is shaking up the job market, art and music, and just about every industry on the planet. Of course, AI will transform gaming as well. What can we expect over the years ahead as AI continues to evolve? Let’s go over ways that our gaming experience will change.

1. Some aspects of game development will speed up.

Developers will be able to utilize AI technology to help them design assets in video games. How much developers decide to rely on AI for this purpose will vary from studio to studio and for different game genres. But studios that rely heavily on AI for work they used to do entirely manually will probably have shorter development cycles—or they will be able to focus more time and energy on other aspects of development.

2. Games will be better optimized.

AI can be used for compressing and optimizing games. That means that they may load more rapidly and we could see an overall boost in performance as well.

3. We will interact with AI elements in games.

We are bound to start seeing AI used in games in character interactions, or even in how the environment responds to us and evolves over the course of a game. Right now, that would probably be pretty clunky. But the possibilities as AI continues to improve are vast. AI could help to keep gaming experiences fresh and personal.

4. Games may include features that adapt to our interests and skill levels.

Speaking of personalizing our gaming experiences, AI In games will be able to detect what users are interacting with and observe how they are approaching the game. It will then be able to offer tailored experiences or tips based on those observations.

For example, say a player in an open world game shows an interest in archery. AI could detect this, and then start generating archery-related quests, content and experiences for the player to dive into.

Or, imagine that a player is mostly playing at their skill level, but one aspect of the game has become too easy for them. AI could suggest a customized difficulty setting that will simply boost the difficulty for that one aspect, leaving the rest as they are.

5. We will encounter AI in customer service.

While AI will change how we play our games, it will also probably impact how we interact with game studios and hardware manufacturers. If we need help from tech support, we may find ourselves initially speaking with AI bots in the future that will try to help us resolve our problems before referring us to a human assistant.

Whether that is going to be a good thing or a bad thing will greatly depend on how each individual company chooses to implement it.

6. AI will help us share our experiences in gaming.

One other way that AI is already changing how we experience gaming is by giving us new ways we can celebrate our fandom and share our thoughts and feelings about games with other players.

For example, we can use AI to make fan art for games we enjoy. Some people also have programmed chatbots to offer fans of games a fun, interactive way of exploring more about those games. People can now also create musical tributes to games they love with AI.

We have covered a few likely ways that AI will transform gaming over the years to come. No doubt, there are plenty of other ways AI will change gaming we have not predicted. It will be exciting to see how the future unfolds.
