In 2012, we bet everything on a passion project to save the studio: a weird sci-fi MMO about space ninjas. Since then, 'Warframe' has developed a thriving community and grown from strength to strength. This talk covers the game AI tech we have built over the last 11 years for 'Warframe'. We also offer some insight into our methods and processes we use to continue to develop the technology while supporting, expanding and improving, a live service game.


'Warframe' has grown and improved since launching over ten years ago. The session will cover the numerous AI systems we have developed over the years and offers lessons learned for building, updating and supporting AI systems in a living game.

Intended Audience

Programmers and Designers of any level who want to learn about the AI systems developed at Digital Extremes and how we continuously improve and support our game AI.
