Jean Guesdon, the director of the Assassin’s Creed: Origins, says “Assassin’s Creed Origins is set to provide every player with a unique experience, to the extent that no two people will have the same experience.” at PC Gamer‘s interview.
We want players to have their own personal experience, which means less scripting and less handholding. We create a world, we place some content in it – we have dozens of quests, and people that you will meet who will tell you stories. But in between, when you’re in the world, a lot of things can happen. And no two people will have the same experience – it’s just not possible.
We’ve reworked the AI so that all living beings in the world are real AI. The lions are hunting antelopes, the crocodiles are attacking hippos if there are any around, and the world is much more living than before.
