Human Element Gets CRYENGINE
Crytek have announced that they have made a licence deal with Indie developers, Robotoki. This will allow them to use the state-of-the-art CRYENGINE to create new games for PC and consoles. Robert Bowling, former lead of Infinity Ward founded the Los Angeles-based company. The studio is working on a new, innovative open-world survival game called Human Element. The aim is to rebuild society 35 years after a zombie apocalypse.
Bowling, Robotoki's President and Creative Director said: "The ambitious narrative and gameplay of Human Element required an innovative set of features in order to achieve our vision. CRYENGINE is the perfect fit for us because it delivers so many powerful features straight out of the box such as the physical based shading system and the infinite terrain from segmented worlds to create a massive open world experience but still allow the visual fidelity and detail our players expect from a first person experience from our team."
Carl Jones, Business Development Director at Crytek, welcomed the partnership: "The team at Robotoki have earned countless plaudits in the games industry, and their talent is obvious from the amazing work we've seen them producing with CRYENGINE already. We look forward to offering them the same high level of support we promise to all CRYENGINE licensees as they work to turn their ideas into a reality."
Human Element is set to release sometime in 2015. If they get the use of this powerful engine right then we could see one of the best zombie experiences in gaming yet. For more about the game visit their home page.
