Skyrim Generates Random New Quests, Lasts ‘Forever’
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will procedurally generate new missions using the game’s Radiant quest system, according to Bethesda’s Todd Howard.
“The vibe of the game is that it’s something that you can play forever,” Howard told Wired.
Tasks could range from hunting bandits or collecting flowers, to working for the game’s factions, with randomly generated robberies or assassinations.
“The world is probably the one thing that sets [Skyrim] apart from other games,” Howard adds. “It feels really real for what it is … It’s just fun to explore.”
Skyrim launches on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 11.11.11 – look out for our review tomorrow.
