Since we have no official bot mode yet, this guide will allow players, regardless of if they are new or not, to play it.
They have commented on the bot mode possibly coming as a standalone mode when I did reach out to them, https://imgur.com/a/GGyYYxE
So expect it to come sometime soon.
How to play it
Step 1: Create a New Account. You can’t do this with your current account unfortunately
Step 2: Have Ring of Elysium Downloaded and Launch it
Step 3: Go to Normal Tab and select Training Mode
Step 4: Play the game untill you get to the Helicopter and DO NOT BOARD IT
Step 5: Let Ymir kill you and end the game or a bot kill you.
Step 6: Repeat untill they officially release the mode
Review of the Bots
What They Can Do
- Board the helicopter and escape
- Drive vehicles
- Pick up items
- Go into the safe zone
- Kill each other
- Can shoot you (Obviously)
Unknown if They Can
- Use their Kits(Snowboarding,Climbing Gear, Glider)
- USe Gondola
- Follow you if they see you from a distance
- Heal themselves
Overall I give the bots a 7/10. For an Indie BR team, these are impressive bots for the most part. Their aim could be better and they could be more aggressive like trying to track you down or going to the safe zones faster. They don’t really hit their targets well and stand still if you shoot at them instead of trying to move around and dodge your shots. Still with all the things they can do, this is a start for something bigger and something to set them apart from the other BR games
Will it Come Later?
Possibly. I did tweet out and reach them and they did say it wasn’t an idea the team was thinking but they would take into account. My advice is for people to reach out to them on their Twitter in the evening and tweet out if they can add it. More attention = more chance of it coming.
