Focus Home Interactive announces its collaboration with Asobo Studio for The Plague
Paris-based video game publisher Focus Home Interactive is pleased to announce its collaboration with French studio Asobo for the development of action-adventure game The Plague.
Planned for PC and consoles, The Plague will be unveiled at the beginning of February to international video game press at What's Next de Focus, the Paris event showcasing games currently in production at Focus.
"Collaborating with Focus Home Interactive on a new, original creation of our team is a major step in the development of our studio," says Sebastian Wloch, CEO of Asobo. For this ambitious project, we needed the full support of a strong and growing publisher. The Focus team, through their professionalism, enthusiasm and openness, have naturally established themselves as the ideal partners to bring the experience we wish to offer to players. "
"It is a great pride for Focus to accompany Asobo on an original creation of the studio," says Cdric Lagarrigue, president of Focus Home Interactive. This new signature confirms our results and know-how on the support of talented independent studios such as Dontnod, Deck13, Giants Software, Cyanide, New World Interactive and Larian on increasingly ambitious projects worldwide. There is a real upscaling of our catalog and The Plague will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the next years of Focus.
The Plague is currently finishing pre-production, and will be presented through a first version of the game at What's Next de Focus on February 1st and 2nd in Paris.
More info and visuals are planned in February. In the meantime, discover the first piece of concept art from pre-production of The Plague.
@docLEXfisti: A very good GPU, should last you a while. Hmmm in terms of benchmarks, try 3dmark, Catzilla, unigine Superposition, unigine heaven, unigine valley, FurMark and Star swarm stress test. (5 minutes ago)
the increase in GFX power is acceptable (19 minutes ago)
before I had a GTX670.... wanted to go for a 1070, due to only EUR 30 more, I went for a GigaByte GTX 1080 (21 minutes ago)
@docLEXfisti: what did you order? (2 Hours ago)
my poor graphics card is on the brink of death, ordered a new one... any cool benchmarks I should try out apart from FFXV? Thanks for advice (2 Hours ago)
I know its pushing 25 years, but still. It's like a little eye opener to how far things have come along since. Runs and looks even better too. (2 Hours ago)
Not sure about anyone else, but it amazes me that a game that ran on hardware that was regarded as cutting edge in the mid 90's can just be loaded in an instant on a web browser. (2 Hours ago)
