The next time you boot up Fortnite, not all your opponents may turn out to be human. Starting next season, the game will introduce bots to online matchmaking. Developer Epic Games says the game's AI opponents "will behave similarly to normal players and will help provide a better path for players to grow in skill." The studio adds that individuals won't encounter bots when they queue for one of Fortnite's competitive playlists. As you get better at the game, you'll also see fewer of them in your matches.
