The lights are on
CD Projekt Red says REDengine 3 will provide the ability to truly create a nonlinear experience for role-playing games set in an open world and featuring player choices.
“If we look at RPGs nowadays we find two approaches: one which emphasizes the story but limits the game world, and one that builds a vast open world but hampers and simplifies the story,” says Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt Red in a press release. “With the REDengine 3 we combine the positive aspects of both approaches for the first time, creating an open environment with a complex, multi-thread story."
The developer’s new project, Cyberpunk 2077, will utilize REDengine 3.
