Shinji Mikami's studio Tango Gameworks has unveiled the codename of their project: Zwei. Resident Evil creator goes back to the survival horror genre with this game in development. Along with the codename, a piece of art showing environments has been released but it's not intended to give any hints at what is in the game. Bethesda Softworks will publish the game but no date, no platforms announced yet.
Bethesda Softworks is pleased to announce that Tango Gameworks and director Shinji Mikami are working on a ‘survival horror’ game under the codename ‘Zwei’.
As a master of the ‘survival horror’ genre, Shinji Mikami is committed to making a game that is the realization of *pure* survival horror, an experience which he defines as one that pushes the limits of fear and exhilaration. He and his team at Tango are committed to attaining this vision.
“A true ‘survival horror’ game is one in which the player confronts and overcomes fear,” says Shinji Mikami, president and creative director for Tango Gameworks. “I've found my focus and once again I'm striving for pure survival horror. I am being very hands-on in the development of this game to ensure that the quality is there. Rest assured.”
MGSV to me feels like just cause. You have mechanics that you are free to llay with in a world, but the objectives all feel samey and hollow because of it (47 minutes ago)
You either give the player those crafted moment at the expense of the freedom people exoect in an open world (gtaV) or you make everything samey and keep the freedom. (48 minutes ago)
I think its just because its hard to create meaningful, well designed moments in an open world. (50 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: Yeah exactly. Never once in MGS1 and 3 was there a truly dull moment. Hell, MGS2 had awesome stuff as well. Are we just spoiled, or is this open world thing not for MGS? I'll a lot more 2mor (52 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: yeah, they can, but they're locked bhind in game currency. Items, and department lvl. Sitting on a cliff marking dudes then sneaking in is getting a but dull. (55 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: Damn, that sucks. Just now i watched some of the earlier released videos and they showed some of the special items and weapons. Those can definitely make it more fun. (57 minutes ago)
I'm still ages away from getting a non lethal sniper rifle (57 minutes ago)
