So a few weeks after Call Of Duty front man Robert Bowling left Infinity Ward we got word that he was starting his own company, Robotoki. After that we didn’t hear much until now. We now know that the company’s first game will be called Human Element, a game about a zombie apocalypse. In a new interview with Game Informer, Bowling says the core objective behind Human Element is 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,” he said.
Human Element ‘s character creation system will allow players to choose between three different character classes, Action, Intelligence, and Stealth, and three different identities, Survive Alone, Survive with a Partner, and Survive with a Young Child. Don’t really understand that last one, but hey let’s see where this goes. The choices you make when you start in the world will determine how you can engage and impacts the scenarios you will be presented with on a physical and morality level.
Human Element is slated for release on next-generation consoles, PC, mobile, and tablets in 2015. For more info on Human Element, pick up the July issue of Game Informer which should be out next week.
