Open world games have their fair share of misconceptions that are worth clearing up.
Each Bit of Content is Handcrafted
Speaking of radiant quests though, it’s perhaps no surprise that not every piece of content in a game is handcrafted (and this can apply to other genres besides open-world). Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will generate different bounties for you to pursue, as an example. Many of these titles also tend to reuse assets from the NPCs in The Witcher 3 to the buildings of Ghost Recon Wildlands and Breakpoint.
