'Earth-sized' open-world game from PUBG creator could be the most realistic life sim ever

'Earth-sized' open-world game from PUBG creator could be the most realistic life sim ever

The creator of PUBG is working on a planet-sized game which could be the most realistic life-sim ever created.

Hands up if you enjoy sinking hours on end into the same game? My hand is up. I enjoy a short finite adventure every now and then but in between those shorter titles, there’s nothing like sinking your teeth into an enormous open-world.

In the last couple of weeks, Hogwarts Legacy has been that kind of a game for a lot of people. One developer teased that it could take you upwards of 120 hours to see all that the game has to offer. It certainly won’t take you that long to roll credits though. Do you remember when Techland teased that Dying Light 2: Stay Human would take 500 hours to complete? That one sent the internet into a frenzy. Today though, I bring you a right beast of a game. The creator of PUBG is working on what aims to be the most ambitious life sim ever, offering players an earth-sized open world.

Speaking of Hogwarts Legacy, enjoy a tour of its open world below.

You heard me right, earth-sized. As reported by PC Gamer, PUBG creator Brendan Greene has opened up about the upcoming Project Artemis. Greene doesn’t actually want to refer to it as a game. He explained, “I’m sure there will be gameplay elements and we do have plans for a light survival exploration-type, life civilization game mode type.” It sounds like a cross between a MMO and a life-sim which would, from my calculations, make it a game.

Opening up about the earth-sized sandbox planet, Greene added that the freedom he hopes the project will offer players does pose certain risks. He said, “If we're building something like this, do I moderate it? Can I moderate it? I don't know yet. I think I have to. I think it's a moral obligation to make sure we can stamp out Nazis. But I'm not sure yet. I think I need to employ some people smarter than me to think about this."

The ‘game’ would have fully simulated weather systems and wildlife. If you “kill all the bears off in one region, there’s gonna be a problem that you might have a deer explosion”. By the sounds of it, Project Artemis is at quite an early stage in its ambitious development. When asked how big it’ll end up being, Greene added, “Let’s see how big we can go.”
