It has been reported in the news that Sony has applied for a new patent to take over the game with AI when the players leave temporarily. Recently, a new patent of Sony was exposed. Compared with AI, this patent is more practical. It allows players to find and connect with other players to get the first time guidance.
The detailed description of the patent can be seen in the public documents of the U.S. patent and Trademark Office. Sony wants players to be able to connect with game experts in real time for help during the game. If the player passes the card or encounters an invincible boss, the server can find the player who passes the card online, and connect directly to let the player provide online guidance.
Although it is only a patent document, it will take some time from the actual application. However, considering that Sony has further strengthened the interaction between players on the ps5, and even prepared strategies to avoid card failure, this function may indeed be gradually promoted by Sony, and we will meet after a certain update in the future.
In addition, the focus of the patent is not to communicate with others during the game, but to find players with experience online. Maybe this function will be more useful in the future. For many stand-alone games, this function can make them know more friends, and it will be of great benefit to social games.
