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.”
@jmd749: That scene with them two and the baby though, really good scene that. (40 minutes ago)
yea, i have a feeling it won't be any kind of seamless campaign, more like different missions all related to the same story-arc (48 minutes ago)
the whole unlocked single player missions has me worried about the flow of the narrative though. maybe it's more like left 4 dead this time around? (51 minutes ago)
unless you want to take all 60 or whatever weapons out at one time there really is no reason to have them all unlocked. people simply buy the guns they want. akimbo smg's. ak47. whatever. (53 minutes ago)
a few hours and you would be playing the final mission of the campaign, even without the everting-is-unlocked -from-the-start :) (53 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: you could buy and use whatever you like in those few hour play. few hours more and you could buy whatever you fancied again. (54 minutes ago)
but anyways, it's no secret most fps devs want the singleplayer experience dead and buried. The future is (sadly) multiplayer only. (55 minutes ago)
