New ‘Dark’ IP heading to Xbox One

Something ‘dark’ is coming to Xbox One – a brand new RPG from the newly created French game developer Big Bad Wolf. The team is located in Bordeaux and made up from a collection of ex Cyanide, Ubisoft and Blizzard employees.

Their first game is a multi-platform project that is described on their website as a “new dark IP” that places emotions and choice at its core, which you could argue should be the core of most RPGs. The team are creating their own ‘Physically based rendering’ game engine to enhance their style:

Between realism and more illustrative design, we really do bring our own style, bordering on the unconventional where the action will unfold.

I’m sure we can expect great things from a team that between them brought us Game Of Thrones RPG, Of Orcs and Men, World of Warcraft and Styx: Master of Shadows. On paper their editorial proposal certainly ticks all the right boxes:

  • Real Choices.
  • Emotions.
  • A modern vision of role-playing.
  • Poignant scenarios.
  • High quality production.
  • Original universes.
  • A maturity of tone.
