Robotoki's Human Element coming to PC in 2015, PS4 & Xbox One release planned

Robotoki's open-world survival game, Human Element, will no longer come to Ouya. The studio is instead focusing on a new CryEngine-built version for PC, next-gen consoles, and mobile devices.


Robotoki had been working on an Ouya-exclusive prequel to its open-world zombie survival game, Human Element. That is no longer the case, as the developer is now looking to cut straight to the chase and get right to the main story. Studio founder Robert Bowling has confirmed that the Ouya prequel has been cancelled, so that the developer can create a CryEngine-based Human Element for PC, next-gen consoles, and mobile devices.

"The ambitious narrative and gameplay of Human Element required an innovative set of features in order to achieve our vision." Bowling stated on the CryEngine website. "CryEngine is the perfect fit for us because it delivers so many powerful features straight out of the box such as the physical based shading system and the infinite terrain from segmented worlds to create a massive open world experience but still allow the visual fidelity and detail our players expect from a first person experience from our team."

Bowling confirmed a November 2015 release window for Human Element's PC version on Twitter (via CVG), while also noting that console and mobile release dates have not yet been determined.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
