Ken Levine: Ghost Story’s Upcoming Title Is Different From Bioshock Games, Will Be Much More Difficult And Challenging
Bioshock creator and the president of Ghost Story, Ken Levine, is currently working on an unannounced game and now he has shared some new details regarding it.
Speaking during EGX Rezzed, Ken Levine talked about the game and how the game will share very little with Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite. During the event, Ken Levine explained that both Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite were “fairly frictionless”.
He added that he has learned a lot from the games that are very comfortable providing some “friction” in the gameplay experience, the games that don’t hold player’s hand or don’t give them things easily.
Ken Levine said that he wants to make the game for a more hardcore audience instead of making the game that’s easier to understand and made for a wider audience.
During the event, Ken revealed that his upcoming game is inspired by Middle-Earth Shadow Of Mordor’s Nemesis system.
Recently, Ken Levine explained why he stopped making Bioshock games. According to him, he did not want to but also added that he had a “never say never” attitude about it. He informed his bosses at Take-Two that he would leave after Bioshock Infinite, to work on a “much smaller” and “very experimental” game.
As for why he stopped it all, well according to Ken developing Bioshock games started to have an adverse effect on his health and life.
Ghost Story is yet to reveal its upcoming game and it is expected to launch for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
