Producer Akihiro Suzuki says that they can’t announce its platform(s) yet, but since it’s the first main-numbered title in a while, as well as the series’ 15th anniversary, they’re facing many big challenges to make it into a “rebirth” for the series, and one of them is making it an open world title with the aim of making all of China’s continent into one giant map.

The vast fields will have towns and players will get to freely go in and out of them at any time. You’ll also run into areas that have vast elevation differences.
