The lights are on
After leaving Infinity Ward to start his own game company Robotoki, former creative strategist Robert Bowling is looking to explore the greatest threat in a zombie apocalypse with his team’s first project: Human Element.
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 allows 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.
“How you choose to 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.
Our 4-page feature with Bowling in our upcoming July issue provides more details on Human Element, including five additional pieces of key art. It starts hitting subscribers next week.
wow nice looking forward to it
The Last of Us 2 vs Human Element..............fight!
This actually doesn't sound bad, I guess Robert Bowling wasn't the JD2020 of Infinity Ward
At first, I was kinda hesitant to buy or here anything about Bowling's new company but this sounds amazing, now whether or not is executed correctly is up to company
Wow, sounds very interesting. Early I was thinking it was basically going to mirror The Last of Us, but the choice element sets it apart, and actually is more interesting than Naughty Dog's game. Its a long wait, but it gives perspective as to when next-gen might come along. Excited for the mag feature! :)
Bowling knows what a great game looks like. I have utmost confidence that he will deliver in spades.
Interesting...2015 is a long ways down the road though
next gennnnnn still has zombiessss
Getting L4d vibes
