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.”
@droezelke: Yeah that's true too.. I mean in general I'm fine with grouping everything into "8th gen" but it's definitely not a clear boundary anymore.. and I guess it never was on PC. (2 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: And the question is: what generation? PS4? Xbox1? PC? Switch...... (8 minutes ago)
Even accounting for personal taste and genre preferences, etc. (10 minutes ago)
Game of the generation is kinda a hyperbolic thing to say about any game. It's tough for me to think of anything that really stands head and shoulders above every other game. (11 minutes ago)
Probably also comes down to what settings and styles you like. I love the Wild West so it appealed to me greatly (21 minutes ago)
@MikeManiac61: funny you mention RDR b/c I was playing that in 4K before GoW and was reminded how great it is (22 minutes ago)
As a boring, overhyped, western wasteland with very little to do, other than skinning animals and playing poker. (33 minutes ago)
