Columns of IGN.com, Stefan Leungkvist From Experience 101 not only a reason was explained Long informative silence on Biomutant He also provided some interesting insights into experiencing the open world of living in his next ambitious role.
In the context of the long interview given to IGN.com’s editorial board, the president of THQ Nordic affiliate confirmed that the title will be mapped to the open world map with an approximate size of Eight square kilometers. Therefore, the dimensions of the fictional universe of Vital Death are larger than those of the first Fortnite Battaglia Reale (5.5 km2) and comparable to the size of the Grand Theft Auto 4 map (8.06 km2), but in any case much smaller compared to titles such as Horizon Zero Dawn ( 22kmq), not to mention the huge digital lands that can be explored with Geralt in The Witcher 3 (135 sq km, including DLC) or Kassandra and Alexios in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (256 sq km).
However, what matters is the density of content and activities that will be carried out within the Biomutant virtual microcosm, as Ljungqvist himself defines when he stated that the free roaming experience for the address would be Missions to conquer outposts And tasks to be completed Secret areas on the map To receive special skills The Rare equipment.
All this according to the Studio head for Experience 101, Will also be reflected in a richer narrative experience: “If we just think about the text, just remember how at the end of 2019 we had a plot with 80/85,000 words like the novel, while in the final we would get close to 250,000 words. For us it was important to commit, we really wanted to complete this text.”.
Still on the open world dynamics and depth of Biomutant’s main drive, Ljungqvist asserts that there is Interactive karma system, call aura, Who will interact dynamically based on the moral compatibility of their actions and the close relationship between the hero and the various secondary characters that must be crossed in the adventure. All this, and hopefully much more, awaits us May 25 With the release of Biomutant On PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S thanks to backward compatibility functionality for the following consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
