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.
