Human Element’s post-apocalyptic wasteland looks familiar, but fresh

Robotoki founder Robert Bowling took the stage at the 2014 Game Awards to share a first taste of his studio’s debut game, Human Element. He also confirmed a November 2015 launch on PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One.

The trailer doesn’t reveal much about the game’s post-apocalyptic setting, which picks up 35 years after zombies decimated most of the Earth’s inhabitants. It looks more like a computer-generated mock-up than raw gameplay, but it at least gives a sense of the style and pace that Robotoki is going for in its open world first-person gameplay.

Bowling came up working at Activision studio Infinity Ward, serving first as community manager and later as creative strategist for the Call of Duty creator. He left in late 2012 and soon after founded Robotoki. Human Element‘s universe was originally meant to be introduced in a prequel game for Ouya, but the studio made the decision to cancel that project and focus its efforts instead on getting Human Element ready for November 2015.
