If you're a Call of Duty fan, chances are you're familiar with the name Robert Bowling (or fourzerotwo as he's most conmmonly known). He was the "creative strategist" for the Call of Duty franchise until early this year when he resigned his post to create his own gaming studio -- Robotoki.
Bowling is now ready to speak out on what he and his team has been working on since he left. The game they're working on will be called "Human Element" and it will traversing familiar ground -- no, not military shooters -- but zombies!
Now, before you cringe and turn a blind eye, it won't be your typical "kill everything that moves" zombie game; based on what Bowling has revealed, the game's core element will be about survival.
Their greatest strength is the fear that [zombies] instill in us, the survivors, that unreasonable fear. Unreasonable fear that leads us to do unreasonable things to survive.
The game will also let you create your own character and it will give players the option to choose from three different classes and identities. For classes there's Action, Intelligence and Survival; while for identities there's Survive Alone, Survive with a Partner and Survive with a Young Child.
Bowling also reveals that "how you choose to start in the world will determine how you can enage and impacts the scenarios you will be presented with on a physical and moralityl level."
While that's all the details we have for now, he did tease fans with the game's first-ever teaser image.
Looks very "apocalype-ty," no? If you're anxious to play the game, I suggest you stow your pre-order money as Bowling has revealed that the game's slated release window is in 2015(!) and it's being bulit for next-gen platforms, PC, mobile and tablets.
If you want to know more details about Human Element, I suggest picking up Game Informer's July issue where they have 4-page feature on Bowling and the game.
While this sounds very intriguing, I do wonder if what Robotoki's planning on doing with Human Element won't be done first by Naughty Dog's The Last of Us. It might just be me but the premise sounds a bit similar, no?
What do you think? Will Human Element be one of the triple A games in 2015 or will zombies be passe by then?
