The producer Confirms that Final Fantasy 16 is not an open-world game.
There is still a long way to go before we can get Final Fantasy 16, but we now know, thanks toSony’ss latest State of Play, that the game will be available in 2023. It will be a PlayStation 5 only exclusive that will introduce Valisthea. As a Blight threatens the peace between different factions, the story continues. It sounds a lot like Horizon Forbidden West.
Although we know Valisthea is composed of six regions,don’tt expect us to travel around them like you might have done the Forbidden West or the Lands Between.
Check out the new trailer for Final Fantasy VII rebirth.
In an interview with IGN, the producer of Final Fantasy 16 confirmed that there would not be an open world. However, he noted that open-world games had been an inspiration to him.
He stated,” We found that many of our younger gamers have never played Final Fantas” or have no interest in the series. We played many games to create a game that would excite and resonate with our core fans and the new generation. So yes, [ Final Fantasy16] will draw inspiration from three-A open-world RPGs.
Yoshida said that”But, to bring a tale that feels like it spans a whole globe and beyond. We decided to avoid an open-world design that restricts us to one open space and instead focus our efforts on an area-based game design that gives players a better sense of a global scale.
The description Yoshida uses sounds very similar to Uncharted4: AThief’ss End, which took us across the globe and intertwined sub-open worlds with linear segments of gameplay. I am excited for the game to adopt a more linear approach.
