id’s Matt Hooper said at GDC Paris yesterday that the design ambitions for post-apolcalyptic action title Rage have forced the company to take on an AI designer as well as an AI programmer.

“Our gameplay goals for Rage are so much more than we’ve ever had before, that if you don’t have an AI designer working with an AI programmer, then you’re just going to be in bad shape,” he said. “So we’ve been forced to do that, just by the breadth of our design goals.”
