Human Element revealed from ex-Call of Duty community manager
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.
