Skyrim to feature infinite quest system

Radiant quest system will randomly generate tasks for players

Posted on
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim director Todd Howard has told Wired that the upcoming RPG game will feature a never-ending stream of procedurally generated content.

Over a phone interview, Howard claimed: "The vibe of the game is that it’s something that you can play forever". The game’s Radiant quest system randomly generates new tasks based on your progress in the game. An innkeeper might ask you to hunt for bandits in a place you haven’t found yet, or an aspiring alchemist could request that you collect 10 undiscovered flowers for his work. Howard claims that the options are endless.

In addition to these minor tasks, Howard said you’ll be able to do extra work for each of the game’s factions, like the Dark Brotherhood and the Thieves Guild. Once you complete the scripted quest lines for each group, you can go to their respective hubs and pick up randomly generated missions to steal gems or assassinate shopkeepers across the game's world.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming to Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on November 11th, 2011.
