According to two new job listings that have appeared online, EA Sports is currently searching for “Narrative Designers” to work on the new FIFA 16 installment.
The vacancies are surprising since FIFA is not known for its narrative sequences. It’s assumed at this point that EA could be looking to include a MyPlayer mode in FIFA 16, similar to that featured in 2K Sports’ NBA series. Either that or the company plans to take its Career modes into different directions.
“The Narrative Designer will bring the player’s experience to explosive life in its story-telling mode, championing story to the team and ensuring that script, speech and story-telling devices are tuned to achieve a gripping emotional narrative experience,” asks the Narrative Designer spot.
It then goes on to mention how the candidate will create characters “that game players fully embrace and bond to, and will capture emotional experiences that drive the story forward through non-linear storytelling techniques.”
FIFA 16 has been in development since August 2014. Apart from better visuals and animations, we’re not really sure of what to expect from the new installment. There’s a slim possibility that we get to hear about the game at E3 2015 in June.
