by Ewan Moore, Gaming Bible We’re starting to reach a point with open-world games where bigger doesn’t always necessarily mean better. Take, for example, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. That’s a damn good game, but I’m not sure it would have lost anything if Ubisoft had made its sprawling recreation of Greece even half the size it ended up being. Basically, just because developers can make a huge open-world game these days doesn’t mean that they should. With that in mind, join me as we take a look at Artemis; a brand new in-development game that promises an open-world roughly the same size as Earth. Artemis is the ambitious new project from Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene, the creator of PUBG. You may recall […]
