This paper presents preliminary work in real-time behavioral evolution of non-player characters in video games. We present an approach, utilizing a modified version of the Template Based Evolution algorithm, to evolve NPCs during a first person shooter game. Through the research, we demonstrate how this approach could be a viable method of introducing evolutionary components into industry quality games, to produce procedural, emergent behaviors.
