'Fallout 4's' Modular Level Design


Large, open-world games like Fallout 4 require an efficient approach to creating many high-quality locations in relatively short period of development.

This presentation provides an in-depth analysis of the techniques used to create art kits, the level design workflow which takes advantage of them, and the production approach which empowers a relatively small content team to make an enormous world.
