The Witcher 3 Dev CD Projekt Red Explains Why The Open World Worked

Published

on

On May 19, 2015, Polish studio CD Projekt Red released The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the final entry in its trilogy continuing author Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher saga. With a huge open world, the game was a big departure from the style of the previous two games, but the risky move resulted in a game that still holds up five years later. It is often considered one of the best role-playing games of all time, and its enormous and lively world is largely responsible for that.

In an interview with Polygon, the CDPR developers have talked about how The Witcher 3 was such a big departure from other games in the series, and what went into making that change.

“Our quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, said that the main goal [of The Witcher 3] was to combine the design philosophy of previous Witcher games, which was to create a complex and mature story that has choices and consequences, with an open world,” senior quest designer Philipp Weber told Polygon. “There used to be this preconceived notion you would hear a lot that open world games can’t tell interesting or deep stories. So that was something we took up as a challenge.”

Mafia 3: Definitive Edition Files Reveal A Berlin Map From A Cancelled Project

Mafia III: Definitive Edition, the newly released version of Mafia III that includes all of the game’s DLC, seems to include a new asset within it. Files have been discovered within the game that show off a map of Berlin, and although it’s missing textures, the full town map seems to be in there.

On YouTube, Sliderv2 has posted a video (as seen on Resetera) exploring the map as Mafia III protagonist Lincoln Clay, showing it from both the air and ground. While the video does not explain how the map was accessed, it lines up with earlier reports about a cancelled game by developer Hanger 13.

A 2018 report on Kotaku about the developer outlined their plans for a new game, Rhapsody, which would be an 80s-set spy game that saw you playing a Russian Jew out for revenge for the murder of their parents.

EA Will Remain The Exclusive Developer Of NFL Simulation Games For Years To Come

Published

By

EA Sports and the NFL are going to extend their deal to keep making more Madden games for years to come. That’s according to a report from Sports Business Daily and information from Albert Breer of MMBQ (see the tweet below). They both say the NFL owners will vote this week to give EA exclusive rights to making simulation football games through the 2025 season. According to the reports, the new deal could extend to the 2026 NFL season if the game series reaches “certain revenue goals.”

The deal between EA and the NFL will also reportedly give the game developer non-exclusive rights to arcade-style NFL games in addition to “embedded companion apps/modes.” EA’s deal with the NFL is currently set to expire at the end of the 2021 season.

This new deal comes not long after the NFL and Take-Two reached their own deal for non-simulation NFL games. 2K’s first new NFL game under its own contract won’t be released for some time. EA remains the only company that can develop officially licensed simulation football games.
