Nexon to publish Robotoki's Human Element
Robotoki, the L.A.-based game studio led by Robert Bowling, former lead and creative strategist of the Call of Duty franchise, has announced that Nexon will be publishing the studio's upcoming game, Human Element.
“Partnering with Nexon has allowed us to achieve our ambitious vision for Human Element,” said Robert Bowling, President and Creative Director of Robotoki. “Combining the fast paced, cinematic, visceral gameplay that our team is known for with the exciting MMO social experience and expertise of Nexon, we are redefining the genre of survival games with an unprecedented level of detail within an open-world experience.”
For those unfamiliar, Human Element is an open-world first-person survival game set 35 years after a zombie apocalypse. It combines action, strategy, and resource management to create multiple human survival scenarios. The game is built using the latest CryEngine technology and combines new Streaming and Segmented MMO game technologies "to achieve a large open-world MMO experience while maintaining the high visual fidelity of a first-person shooter."
“We are excited to work with Robotoki to bring this exciting game to consumers in North America and around the world,” added Nexon CEO and President Owen Mahoney. “This announcement marks an important milestone in the strategic partnership we formed with Robotoki in February 2013 and furthers our goal of developing groundbreaking, AAA quality free-to-play games.”
