Every time between games I consider a bunch of things: sequels, console ports, remasters, etc.

That kind of information helps the player decide what to do next, increasing player agency.

The timer doesn't even have to be displayed directly: it can use fuzzy terms like 'no pressure', 'imminent', etc.
In general, yes the dynamic quest structure will be there. I am toying around with an idea of a threat meter, like we did in Zombasite, but for each quest. Whether or not this shows the general chance of a town attack or just for the quest to cause more problems I don't know.
