Remedy Games is trying to rent a brand new recreation designer, so let’s decide over the job advert and see what we are able to surmise from it.
Remedy Games, identified for Max Payne (1 & 2), Alan Wake, and Quantum Break, is at the moment in improvement on a challenge we don’t know a lot about. The challenge, codenamed ‘P7’ (that is their seventh title), is searching for a recreation designer with expertise and data of on-line techniques.
To be extra particular, it actually seems like they need the designer to be accustomed to Destiny. Part of the job ad reads:
Are you always desirous about intriguing methods to excite your gamers and hold them invested in your recreation’s world? Are you obsessive about lore and a want to create wealthy content material that communities will devour? Do you design problem techniques which can be so moreish your gamers plan their week round them? Have you already designed the subsequent Battle Royale? Are you at all times among the many first to seek out Xûr?
The ‘obligations part of the job advert particularly mentions creating “compelling, innovative online game modes” too. They are searching for somebody to “share knowledge and keep the team updated on trends and areas for innovation in the connected- gaming space”.
This is attention-grabbing, as Remedy has, up to now, labored solely on single-player video games. A transfer into giant, persistent multiplayer gaming is a large change for the developer, which is publishing the game under 505 Games (they usually have invested in it pretty closely).
We know (per the hyperlink above) that the sport will use the identical engine as Quantum Break, and that it’s going to come to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Hopefully we’ll discover out extra about what they’re engaged on in 2018.
If this, by the way, seems like one thing you’d be good at, purposes are open till January 1. This is a full-time place, and you need to reside in or be prepared to relocate to Espoo, Helsinki. The firm provides 5 weeks of holidays a yr, which is fairly good contemplating gaming’s crunch tradition.
