More About MMORPG with Open World

One of the most significant features of MMORPGs with Open World is that players have unlimited access to every location on the map so that main quests do not restrict the gameplay. In some games, players even can do anything but the main quests and at the same time develop their characters to the highest level. These games provide full freedom of action, with lots of exciting places to explore.

Such profound freedom of character development makes developers look for suitable solutions for the plot that can fit into the picture of such a game and not destroy the logic of the story. One of the most popular decision is elegant and simple at the same time: the world of the game is divided into different areas, restricted by level. It can be annoying and push players to the grind. Still, on the other hand, beginners will most likely be lost in the game or can’t cope with the playthrough if they occasionally get directly to the final location at the beginning of the game.

Another unique feature of MMORPG with Open World is the procedural generation of content. This function is often used to create unique locations and fill the world of the game with random events, occurring regardless of the player’s actions. Sometimes it does not look as smooth and correctly constructed as in games with activities entirely prescribed by the developer. Still, worlds with procedural generation look much more alive and unique.

Games with the open-world often provide players with some sandbox features, and sandbox games most likely to have an open world. The vast scope for exploration encourages players to begin to change the surrounding space, making it more convenient for playing.
