In this week's episode of Forged in Aeternum, the New World devs sit down and talk about the evolution of quests and storytelling in the MMORPG. The game has come a long way with its quests and storytelling over its lifetime, especially with the revamped zones, the Brimstone Sands zone, and the content of Season 2 Blood of the Sands.
The game has more than doubled its number of fully-voiced quest-givers over the past couple of years. As an effort to improve the variety of voiceovers, the team has moved much of the voice recording overseas to Europe where a wider variety of voices can be found.
The team discusses how the type of quests has changed, from just walking 1000 meters to kill something, to interacting with geysers to uncover secret caverns. Building to a point in a story that feels more "meaty" was an important goal of the team.
New World is also adding more cinematics with every major update, and have focused on improving those scenes and the stories told within them.
