Developers Techland have teased us with some new information about their upcoming fantasy game, tipped to include “open world and RPG elements”.
Although most of the juicy details about the game remain under wraps, we’ve now heard that the team behind Dying Light have asked their Warsaw branch to:
Prototype interaction with opponents of unusual size.
Having been awarded a grant of $1million USD by the Polish National Centre for Research and Development’s GameINN scheme, they now have plans to “develop innovative technologies to promote the effective production of high-tech gaming” – and it sounds like this is going to translate into some big (BIG) enemies.
Add this to the news that Damien Monnier – senior designer on The Witcher 3 – is going to be working on the project and there are already a lot of reasons to get excited about Techland’s new IP.
We’ve also heard that CD Projekt RED and CI Games have both landed grants. In fact, CD Projekt RED picked up an impressive $7million USD for work on “living cities”, using the principles of AI to bring their open world city to life; we’re guessing this will come in handy for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077.
