Artemis is set to be an earth-sized open world title.
The creator of PlayerUnkown Battleground’s, Brendan Green recently revealed that he had plans in motion for new project Prologue, which will be a huge open-scale world experience.
Fans will hopefully get some insight into what the company, PlayerUnknown Productions has in store for the future as a playable tech demo is said to be on its way.
In a recent interview with Venturebeat, Greene discussed even more ambitious future plan, it seems that Prologue is merely the first skipping stone on the way to Artemis.
Prologue is set to be a single-player title which takes place in a world of 64 kilometres, while Artemis is set to be a huge multiplayer experience which will take place in an “Earth-sized virtual world”.
The title will be created with machine learning technology and will heavily focus on unscripted gameplay.
Green said “This kind of desire to have a digital life is strong in a lot of gamers […] Providing this space where it’s a big enough world – I love Rust, but if you play on a busy server there are bases every few meters. I want a space where you don’t discover a player’s base for miles. Or when you do it’s a big settlement rather than a box”.
“This stuff has always excited me, ever since I got back into gaming by discovering really open worlds. Red Dead Redemption is fantastic, but it’s just a bunch of scripts. You go kill all the bears in a region, go away, come back, and they’re all back again”
“I want to have meaningful life in the world. If you kill all the bears in a region, maybe the deer population explodes.”
“We want to give people a new place to live, because this one has some issues”.
So, it looks as though there will be plenty for players to sink their teeth into, along with lots of exciting things happening in the future at the studio.
