Crytek today announced a CRYENGINE licensing deal with independent game studio, Robotoki, who will use its engine to create a new game for PC and consoles.
According to the press release, Robotoki is working on the innovative open-world survival game “Human Element”, which challenges players to rebuild society in the aftermath 35 years after a zombie apocalypse and adapt as the world evolves based on their actions.
Robert 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, added:
“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 scheduled for release in late 2015.
