- From what I understand it works like this: The world is procedurally generated to infinity (as you travel, I guess) - but your starting placement in that world will change for each character you make. Similarly, each player will start in a different area. So you could end up several thousand miles from your previous character's location, with effectively a very different area to explore.

The idea behind it is to have persistence, so maybe one day your new character finds the corpse of your old one out in the wilds, or something like that. The dev said you could tell your friends about cool locations you found, and they'd be able to find them if they travel to the right coordinates.

I don't see why they couldn't have the option to have a whole new world generated though, if someone preferred that.
