"Our game will be much more dynamic than a typical RPG."
The Precursors, an upcoming title for PC and Xbox 360, is another game hoping to successfully merge two existing genres for a new kind of gaming experience. The two genres in question: RPG and FPS.
Role-playing games, known for their deep and involving worlds and plotlines, and first-person shooters, known for their intense and unrelenting combat, are not genres that can be easily matched. However, Sergey Zabaryansky (Director of The Precursors) believes it is possible. He says there are a lot of good shooters on the market, but they "don't give you a true freedom of actions." The same goes for RPGs – there are good games available, but they are mostly set in fairy-tale worlds.
