Patrick Söderlund shares a look at his new game

 

Ex EA and DICE top bod Patrick Söderlund has set up pa new studio named Embark and they are working hard on their first game. ”

In a shorter time than I would have expected, the early team here settled around an idea for our first proper game — an idea that we were immediately excited about, that resonates with our mission, and that we have now begun prototyping,” he wrote in a blog post.

The game will be built using Unreal engine and will be a “cooperative free-to-play action game set in a distant future, about overcoming seemingly impossible odds by working together.”

You can see some of the artwork below which I have cruelly described as ‘Aldi Death Stranding’ as the landscape looks similar, including beaches and tentacle things, but character is wearing a rather cheap looking jumpsuit.

They have also released am impressive video of some terrain, “Everything in this clip was created by three people over three weeks, using real-world scanned data, procedurally placed objects, and some great tools,” says Patrick.

    This is where I lose interest.

  2. The environment footage looks amazing.
