Ubisoft Says Zelda & Horizon Zero Dawn Borrowed From Their Open World Games

Ubisoft has their formula set when it comes to open world games, and you can see the template being repeated over many of their biggest franchises. While for the most part their approach to open world game design is solid, it does tend to get very repetitive and mindless. Other games have definitely taken influence from some of the biggest Ubisoft games, but tweaked many of these mechanics to offer a much more compelling gameplay loop. Ubisoft also seems to have noticed this, saying that some of the biggest open world games this year have borrowed from their open world mechanics. In an interview with Edge Magazine Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has this to say: “It’s interesting, because The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild took a lot of things that existed in Far Cry and other Ubisof...

Bethesda Softworks’ beloved open world RPGs are all solo affairs in the world that we know, and that’s by design.
