StarCraft 2 Heart of Swarm Offers AI Training Program
StarCraft 2 Heart of Swarm will offer a multiplayer-focused, AI guided training mode in addition to the already meaty single-player campaign.
The AI training mode is described as the “training area” and the difficulty ups as you clear objectives. The AI will teach you how to play. You can also play a unranked match against the AI when you finish.
In a interview with PCGamesN, Mike Morhaime stated the training mode is to help ease new players into the game. There will also be new features that help new players along with the training mode.
“We want to make the game more accessible to players that aren’t necessarily ready to jump into a highly competitive scene,” he said.
“A lot of players never make the transition from the campaign to matchmaking – to playing against people they don’t know.”
Accessibility is also behind Blizzard’s decision to offer unranked matches.
“A lot of people do feel intimidated, at least at first, in playing in ranked play. Unranked matches are a big step in that direction,” he said.
