Additionally, Microsoft Research has the technical insights into the future of gaming, and Team Xbox is strong with numerous accessible and responsible creation tools for all developers.
The partnership envisions the creation of a multi-platform, accessible and responsibly designed AI toolset. Everything is aimed at assisting developers in the design and creation of dialogues, stories and missions. The toolset will include:
- An AI design co-pilot which assists and empowers game designers to explore more creative ideas, turning prompts into detailed scripts, dialogue trees, quests, and more.
- An AI character runtime engine which can be integrated into the game client, allowing you to create new narratives with dynamically generated stories, missions and dialogues for players.
The tools will be available to game developers everywhere in the world and for all platforms.
