Intel and Mantisco Bring AI Horde to Life in Hunter’s Arena: Legends

Hunters Arena Legends xIn a typical Battle Royale game, players fend for themselves, scour the map for loot, remain in the playable area and strategically plot to become the sole survivor. Mantisco’s Hunter’s Arena: Legends delivers a fresh approach to gameplay: In addition to their rival Hunters, players must contend with up to 10,000 artificial intelligence (AI) enemies, bringing together into one title the best MMORPG1, MOBA2 and Battle Royale features.

Developing a game with up to 60 players and 10,000 AI enemies was a massive technical undertaking. Mantisco needed to deliver seamless gameplay with exciting battles that keep players in the middle of the action.

Intel helped Mantisco optimize gameplay through Intel® Xeon® servers and 10th Gen Intel® Core™ CPU utilization that allow battles to take place simultaneously across the map. Using Intel® VTune™ Profiler, which provides detailed profile data to improve CPU and GPU computing-intensive tasks and CPU threading performance, Mantisco created continuous and explosive moments of conflict among human and AI opponents alike through a dynamic monster respawn system.

What does this mean for the average Hunter? Gamers will be able to play a game that’s accessible to a global audience without compromising the integrity and complexity of the core fighting system – making sure that each player can directly encounter spawned monsters dynamically and throughout the game. The cooperation between Intel and Mantisco allows for unique Battle Royale gameplay. In addition, Intel® Graphics optimizations enhance the experience with higher frame rates and more dynamic gameplay on Gen11 and upcoming Xe graphics.

As part of the Intel® Software Advantage Program, players can access Hunter’s Arena: Legends and more when purchasing a qualifying device with an Intel® Core™ i5 processor or above from a participating retailer.
