| Lead Designer Florent Guillaume tells us everything about in-game weapons, loot, factions and more

Nice interview mostly about the lore of the game but also its semi-open-world or some gameplay mechanics. Link here.

I've already read it. Once again they mention it's mostly an open world, free to explore.
«We tend to say we have a semi-open world, which in fact is an open world. You can navigate freely in the world and discover secrets.» - florent guillaume, Lead Designer.
