DSOGaming report on Frogwares demonstration of city generation which will feature in The Sinking City which is a lovecraftian open world detective game.

Frogwares has shared a video showing the City Generator tech demo for its upcoming Lovecraftian game, The Sinking City. With this tool, Frogwares is able to generate a rich, visually varied, open-world city in merely a few moments. What’s really cool here is that when The Sinking City releases, Frogwares is planning on sharing this tool with everyone.

As such, theoretically, players will be able to create their own cities with this tool. And if the game is open to more mods, it will provide an experience that extends beyond the game. Hear that EA? No need for microtransactions or anything like that.

More information.

I've never heard of this, but it does sound pretty interesting and unusual.

I wonder how releasing the mod tools will work. If they are using Unreal, aren't they bound to either release a "plugin" for the Unreal engine and only registered Unreal users may use said plugin?

Hmm... open world and "city generator" are words I wouldn't necessarily want to hear about a Lovecraft game.

But who knows.

Uh, no, unfortunately EA can't hear anything over the casino-like sound of the mountains of gold coins perpetually flowing into their vault.
