What does Open world mean ?
An Open World RPG Game is different that traditional games.
Most games have a linear path.
You play in the order and how the designers setup the game.
You explore area’s when they say, and live or die.
Its that simple.
Open World Games are less linear.
You can wander, do different things at different times.
Find things naturally.
It makes it hard to follow the storyline goal tho.
