Todd Howard: You Can Play Skyrim Forever
I’ve been playing Skyrim a lot over the past couple weeks. I can’t really talk about it until tomorrow, but I think I can say that I don’t know how many quests it has. It would probably take a lot more time with the game to find that out.
Todd Howard, though, thinks he knows how many quests are in the game. His number: “infinite.” Whoa. That’s a lot of quests, and I’m pretty sure that’s not actually possible, but he thinks it is.
“The vibe of the game is that it’s something that you can play forever,” he told Wired.
He’s saying this because of the game’s Radiant AI, which will randomly generate new quests regularly. Still, at some point it has to run out of quests or repeat old quests. It just can’t go on forever.
Or maybe it can. I’m not going to try to find out, though.
