IGN launched an AI chatbot for its game guides

    The gaming website IGN is launching an AI tool that’ll hopefully help you troubleshoot and beat games. That might mean you get to say goodbye to those very specific Google searches and deep-dives through Reddit threads.

    For now, the chatbot was launched only for IGN’s The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom guide. You’ll eventually need an IGN account to access the chatbot but, for now, anyone can test it out.

    IGN says the chatbot experience, which is still in the alpha release testing phase, is based off guides, tips, and other content written at the site as well as info from contributors’ playthroughs.


    The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a delightful mix of boldness and familiarity

    “We envision this guides feature to act as a comprehensive search solution for those seeking fast answers to a tricky problem, providing solutions immediately and conveniently without having to look at multiple pages,” IGN wrote in a post announcing the chatbot.

    I don’t play a ton of video games beyond sports titles, so I asked the bot if Tears of the Kingdom was friendly to beginners. At first, it looked like the chatbot was broken because the answer was quite delayed, but it eventually gave me a pretty fitting response.

    I don’t think I’ll be playing anytime soon.

    Of course, IGN’s chatbot tried to direct me to some of the site’s coverage which makes sense. It remains to be seen how helpful it ends up being for people trying to beat the game that drew rave reviews. But with time, perhaps all your gaming answers will just be one sentence away.

    IGN and Mashable are both owned by Ziff Davis.
