Overview: DICE's 'Battlefield' and 'Battlefront' games have grown tremendously in scope over the years. To meet DICE's testing requirements, extensive test automation systems were developed. The most recent addition to these has been the development of AutoPlayers, autonomous bots that are used for scenarios ranging from full 64 player soak tests to specific scripted test cases. Jonas will describe his experience so far developing the AutoPlayers technology. His talk will cover the architecture, outline user workflows and describe several use cases. Some of these were entirely unexpected but illustrate the power of a system where end users are in control.
