Human Element revealed from ex-Call of Duty community manager

by William Schwartz on June 1, 2012

Robert Bowling used to be the face of the Call of Duty franchise before he parted ways with Activision earlier this year. Bowling formed his own game studio, Robotaki, with a distinct vision in mind for the future.

Eventhough the studio has just been formed, Bowling already has a game in the early stages of development. It’s a zombie apocalypse survival game called Human Element, and it’ll arrive in 2015 for next-gen consoles.

According to a recent interview with Game Informer, Bowling reveals the core idea behind Human Element is survival. “Their greatest strength is the feat that zombies instill in us, the survivors, that unreasonable fear. Unreasonable fear that leads us to do unreasonable things to survive,” Bowling told the magazine.

Based around a chraracter creation system that allows players to choose between three different classes: Action, Intelligence, and Stealth. Players will also choose to survive on their own, survive with a partner, or survive with a child.

Sounds like an interesting twist on the whole over/better done zombie apocalypse thing.

    So the man who couldn’t even bother doing his community manager job properly is now in charge of a game?

    No thanks. Perhaps if he didn’t have a track record as a douche bag I might consider it. But you can’t just lie to everyone, start your own game studio, and then start making games :/

    @Jassie, you have no idea what you’re talking about. Way to go on talking a lot of shit about something you know little about. I hope this game kicks ass and they make bank on it while you work your middle class job.
