Guerrilla Games New IP a AAA FPS With Fantasy Elements?


According to nextgn.com, Guerilla Games have given hints as to what their next game will be about via their job listings. What we do know is that it is aiming for a AAA first-person shooter but with a twist. Perhaps we are reading to deeply into the job descriptions, but they all seem to be following a common theme.

Phrases such as:
“Looking for a Dumbledore amongst FX Artists”
“sage-like leaders”
“FX wizards”
“Like a modern day Daedalus”
“monsters and ensnare the heroes”
“heroic concept artists spoken of in legend”
“little like a god”

Could it be that Guerrilla Games is making a fantasy FPS perhaps with RPG elements?

    Maybe it will be more like an updated Hexen?

    That would be kind of cool.

    I read that the latest game in the Potter franchise is, indeed, a FPS.

    Come on guerilla games, don’t drink the movie game kool aid! NOOOOOOooooo!

    Did they forget about the fail that was Lord of the Rings as a FPS? Booooooooo.

    lol its not a movie game….the mere fact its labeled a “AAA title” clearly prevents it from being a movie game lol.

    and I thought that website was reading too far into the job descriptions geez :P lol

    If they are hinting at ANYTHING related to the game in question…think Oblivion only more based on magic.

    Hexen had an original, non-linear level progression scheme, but neither it nor its daddy Heretic were as good as the Doom. In fact, another fantasy-FPS based on the Doom engine was better than both, in my opinion: Strife. Sadly the game tanked, I believe.

  15. #15 by Eddie on December 29th, 2010 [ 44542 Points ]

    yes heretic was an awesome game too!

  16. #16 by xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux on December 29th, 2010 [ 2160 Points ]

    eh lest see what it is first before jumping to conclusions.

  17. #17 by Oly on December 29th, 2010 [ 132360 Points ]

    You are an awesome game Eddie

  18. #18 by Kane112 on December 29th, 2010 [ 34232 Points ]

    haha heretic another classic. Never heard of Strife

  19. #19 by Eddie on December 29th, 2010 [ 44542 Points ]

    The only Strife worth mentioning is Cloud!
