Die Early-Access-Version von Divinity: Original Sin 2 hat ein neues Update erhalten, das offenbar den Schwierigkeitsgrad des Rollenspiels anhebt. Grund dafür: Das AI-2.0-System, durch das Kämpfe gegen NPC-Gegner etwas herausfordernder werden sollen.

Wie genau das funktioniert, erklären die Entwickler in einem neuen Video auf der Kickstarter-Projektseite zu Divinity: Original Sin 2. Wie es darin heißt, ist sich die Künstliche Intelligenz nach dem Update ihrer Umgebung im Spiel deutlich bewusster, so dass sie etwa explosive Ölfässer oder potenzielle Debuffs besser nutzt.

KI-Balancing wird noch optimiert

Aktuell klingt das Ganze noch so, als sei das KI-System absichtlich etwas zu schwer gemacht worden. Das Entwicklerteam möchte so offenbar mehr Feedback der Spieler erhalten, um das richtige Balancing zu finden. Im fertigen Spiel werden einzelne Fähigkeiten der Künstlichen Intelligenz dann offenbar an- oder ausgeschaltet, abhängig vom gewählten Schwierigkeitsgrad.

Nach der Aktualisierung sind alte Spielstände von Divinity: Original Sin 2 übrigens nicht mehr kompatibel. Dazu sind die Änderungen wohl zu umfangreich. Es ist aber auch möglich, mit der alten Beta-Version weiterzuspielen.

Die Patchnotes zu Version 3.0.31.292

Improvements

  • AI 2.0. Integrated new AI system for all enemies
  • AI has received a big overhaul. In general it should be a lot smarter and have more awareness of its surroundings. This means that the AI might have gotten a bit more difficult to deal with, so don't underestimate your enemies and especially watch your positioning! Your enemies will make better use of barrels, surfaces, and combat control skills, and they'll have better knowledge of the consequences of casting particular skills. Planning ahead is now more important than ever.
  • Loot system overhaul
  • Find less gear in random loot, but more gold and valuables. The idea is to get economy going and make trade more important. Uniquely hand-placed items and boss loot should feel more rewarding and rare. You HAVE to go shopping!
  • Added three new arenas
  • Forbidden Valley
  • Enemy at the Gates
  • Ravenshaw Mansion
