GlobalLogic engineers use generative AI in video games

The GlobalLogic team has created a demo game based on technology from Replica Studios and Google Cloud. GlobalLogic specialists visualized a game world where the behavior and dialogues of non-game characters are created by artificial intelligence.

Now, with the help of AI technologies, non-playable characters (NPCs) can communicate with players and each other. This innovation speeds up the creation of games for developers and provides a new and exciting experience for users.

The video game market is projected to grow by 8.76% annually from 2024 to 2027. In 2027, it will reach USD 363.20 billion.

ринок відеоігор з 2024 до 2027 року зростатиме на 8,76% щорічно. У 2027 році він сягне 363,20 млрд доларів США

What it means for the gaming industry

The development allows you to create the character and language of game characters using generative AI. Through a query (prompt), a character can be endowed with intelligence, motivation, and a unique personality. To do this, it is enough to specify characteristics, such as: “Alan, a magical forest druid, wise and strong,” “Fiona, a royal emissary with an Eastern European accent,” or “an older Italian mafia boss.”

This greatly simplifies game development. You don’t need to write down all the possible responses and reactions of the character in detail. They are created automatically according to the NPC description. Characters will dynamically change dialogues and actions during the live game.

What has been created so far

Replica Studios combined voice and behavioral generation technologies with Google’s Gemini Pro model to create non-game characters with their own personalities using artificial intelligence.

After that, GlobalLogic engineers created a demo version based on the latest version of the Unreal Engine. Vertex AI, a Google framework for machine learning, was used in the development process.

“We had to create the demo in a short time, so our extensive experience in working with AI came in handy. It took us only a month to go from idea to full-fledged demo,” says Dmitry Vatolin, Junior Vice President of Engineering at GlobalLogic Ukraine.

According to him, GenAI significantly speeds up game development and gives a completely new immersive experience to users.
