Microsoft recently encouraged the gaming community wear Bing to find relevant information on a variety of games. In addition to the factual details, the Redmond company noted that the ChatGPT-powered bot could also answer creative and spontaneous queries related to the games, their characters, and more.
With a multi-million dollar investment at OpenAI, creator of ChatGPT, Microsoft wants to get the most out of Bing. Apart from being a search assistant, the Redmond company is now promoting it as a game guide chatbot, which can answer different questions related to a bunch of games.
In his recent blog postIt looks like Microsoft has made significant improvements to Bing to allow it to answer gaming related queries efficiently. According to the company, it tested Bing in that area and provided results that Microsoft described as “impressive.”
In general, Microsoft emphasized that Bing could handle more than just queries (such as roundups), as it is also capable of offering hints and tips that gamers might find useful. Interestingly, the chatbot can also process vague queries about some gameplay details, such as the “blue alien lady in Mass Effect 3” or a “list of Fallout 3 quests beginning with the letter J.” With this, Microsoft said Bing could also answer other random questions, including recreating some items found in games, from food to swords and more.
However, while Bing can accept random questions in different shapes and formats, the software giant pointed out some specific ways to effectively extract in-game details from the bot. Microsoft added that through follow-up questions, Bing could provide more detailed information on previously provided information. Here are some of the sample queries that Microsoft said gamers could use as guides:
“Tell me about the best cyberpunk-style RPGs on Xbox.”
“What loadout should I wear in Warzone 2.0 multiplayer?”
“Give me a summary of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch up to chapter 4.”
“Where can I find that quest where that guy who did that thing with the flaming sword that time is?”
“How do I make a toy sword based on a design found in Skyrim?”
