Human Element

Eurogamer's resident survival game fan Ian Higton has his eyes on some brand new extreme adventures for 2015. So, after scouring deep space to the deep sea and everywhere in between, he's put together a list of the five survival titles he's most looking forward to in the coming year.

Human Element - the upcoming ambitious post-apocalyptic survival game headed by ex-Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling - has revealed that it's not going to be a free-to-play game, as was the original plan when it signed a publishing deal with Nexon.

UPDATE: Bowling addresses concerns about his studio's size.

Update: Many of you voiced concern over the size of Robotoki in the comments. We followed up with Bowling for clarification. Here is his official response:

"I saw the concerns, happily they're unfounded and all rooted in one post by a Twitter user who posted such claims."

"Robotoki is new indie development start up, registered in Los Angeles county California with our first project Human Element in pre-production phases of development. The core eight-persons staff of Robotoki have all been focused on writing and securing tech, however with full production beginning on the Human Element prequels for Ouya this month, that focus and staff will drastically expand over the course of the following six months, however writing will always be a main priority throughout development. Anyone interest in applying at Robotoki or with questions regarding employment, they can reach us at work@robotoki.com."
