Battlefield designer reveals promising-looking Viking monster game

Looks all Wight.

The Outsiders, the indie studio set up by Battlefield lead designer David Goldfarb, has revealed its first game.

Currently titled Project Wight, it is a monster game set in era of Vikings. Think the saga of Grendel, for example, but with a twist.

That twist is that you play as the "monster", one of the last of his species. The rest of his kind have been hunted down and slaughtered by humans.

In this atmospheric teaser video, narrated by Goldfarb, we can see how your abilities are affected by the age of the creature you are playing.

It's impressive to see how quickly you are made to care for the creature - it all gets a bit Walking Dead for your dad.

We've yet to hear a release date or platforms for the game, but look forward to hearing more in the near future:
