***Original Story***

Sony Santa Monica Studio, the developers behind God of War, are hiring for an unannounced new IP.

According to the job description on Gamasutra which was posted today, the postition is for a Senior Combat Designer who is expected to partner with the organization to:

  • Assist, collaborate with and take direction from Lead Combat Designer and Game Director as needed on any the following: character and boss designs from concept to implementation completion, including character animation implementation and tuning, environmental character impact, special effects, sound effects, AI gameplay scenario layout and gameplay tuning, controller configuration, gameplay features, magic distribution, character balance and ramping.
  • Work within the set standard for all character asset design, creation and in-game implementation within the production path as it relates to design, art and otherwise.
  • Participate in required production related meetings and functions as needed.   Attend and participate in combat-specific discussions concerning combat design and combat design issues.
  • Must comprehend a working knowledge of the game production pipeline in order to communicate effectively with other team members.   
  • Must understand the relationship between gameplay elements within the level and the overall game and all of the ways the player can respond to each gameplay element.

Nothing is known about the game, but let the speculation begin.

From the description it looks like the game will be similar to God of War, with boss fights and a heavy focus on character animation and combat design.  And if that's the case, then chalk one up for another promising PS3 exclusive!
