We've known for a while that Forza Horizon 4 developers Playground Games are working on another project alongside the super-popular racing title.
That would be great game actually to attract different audiences and finally reach the red sea, possibly?
Beserk now that would be a twist. But if they can pull it off I'm all down for it
they make quality games, glad to see them work on something else as well. the artwork looks like a pretty high target.
I don't know about this but my interest has been piqued.
Any anime except Berserk. For how good it is, I can’t deal with how sad it is and the bad things that happen to their characters. I know that would turn a huge audience off of it right off the bat.
That'll happen when an author is dying and you're seeing the raw expression of their misery, I guess.
I'd be quite surprised and intrigued however this is more than highly unlikely. As cool as the Berserk manga and anime is, there's certainly not enough mass appeal for the ip to warrant such a large AAA british studio to work on it. It would be much easier for them to make and market a new ip or Fable than try and take on Berserk and then some how create mass appeal for it. If anyone was to do a berserk game, it would be PlatinumGames.
Why platinum games? Fromsoftware would nail the atmosphere of berserk and they are clearly fans of it .I'd want it to be more rpg than hack and slash.
Couldn't agree more. RPG all the way...
Guts's fighting style is very fast paced, violent and he takes on multiple enemies at the same time, very much up PGs street. Yes FS could nail the atmosphere but I think PGs could also.
I think it does have a lot of appeal, but I feel that they've only ever tested the waters with smaller and less risky projects which is why we get bad adaptations. They expect to see positive results from poor products just because the manga has a huge following. If PG is actually working on this game then I will be very proud of them and MS for taking on Berserk at a AAA level. But, I highly doubt that. It is an interesting idea. It would be great that Ninja Theory would be around to collaborate some minds to nail the action, cinematic cameras, and timings down with them.
Man, I remember playing Sword of the Berserk on the DC. Would be cool to have a new game.
They actually made a new game not too long ago, https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://youtu.be/790PMTzxMt... - Berserk Armor October 27, 2016 - Berserk: Band of Hawks
That would be amazing
Loving the concept art! Either way I am excited to see what they are creating.
Now that would be an Xbox exclusive worth having imo.
Thumbs down for Xbox having an exclusive?
I mean, people are free to disagree with me if the potential game doesn't appeal to them. Nothing wrong with disagreeing.
I gave a thumbs down but just because I disagree with this being a good exclusive. Berserk would definitely be a niche title and would rather have a fable game. Not trying to be an ass, just disagree is all. Plus it doesn't matter anyway because this is fake, gearnuke didn't research it enough, it's just an art project.
meka2611 Berserk is akin to Game of Thrones in manga form. It doesn't hold back, and is very inventive for its time. The scale is also incredible. And, they both have taken exceedingly long for the writers to finish. I think it is simply not advertised correctly, and they keep trying to test the waters with low funded projects and adaptations rather than just going for it properly. I wouldn't expect a project like this to be taken lightly for a AAA studio, and Ninja Theory is available to help nail the flow and action sequences down.
Conar Cross clearly explains on the site what this is: "From 'The Berserk Project'. Sean Ray modeled Griffith and the demons. This is a personal project between Sean Ray and I, we're imagining what Berserk could look like as a show/film series." https://www.artstation.com/...
I saw that also when looking into it... people don't damn read and shame on the outlet for the clickbait article. The artwork is interesting enough without resorting to clickbait.
Stuff like this is why we scream click bait all the time, isn't it? Did the author not look at the site for all of the 30 seconds at all to find what you and I saw? I think he did and decided this would be some easy, cheap clicks so do it anyway.
Premeditated clickbait. I can't assume anyone who actually looked at the images didn't see that. He just spun it for a clickbait article. I mean, hell, it worked. I clicked. But be assured Gearnuke is now on my radar and not in a good way.
Guess you have no intention of ever becoming a journalist if you wanna do things like research, or read easily found information. I mean, next, you'll be asking the developers for a comment to verify what you believe before you decide to post an article. That's just not how you get a job in the gaming industry nowadays. baseless speculation that ignores any and all evidence provided, to come up with a conclusion that makes a pithy and excitable headline. That's what you need to do, and websites will be knocking down your door....or smearing your name because you are doing better than they are. I don't know if anyone else has noticed in the race to be first, people make an article before even asking for a comment...or waiting for a return to a request for comment. Only to cause a stir which makes the parties involved actually comment on something which is usually pretty innocuous and nowhere near the original assertion.
I'll be really glad if it's Berserk. I'd rather Playground games works on this game than Fable. Berserk has great potential to be a a great game with lore that is second to none, an intricately detailed artstyle and well developed and rich characters. I've read all of the manga and I'm eagerly anticipating the next chapter. If anyone's read the manga everyone knows that the golden age arc is possibly one of the best pieces of work you'll ever come across in any entertainment medium. I mean that is the very arc that inspired Miyazaki to create the Souls series. With this focus on Manga, I could see MS trying to intice the Japanese gamers with a good action adventure based on an already established franchise.
I mean I know we are all interested to see what Playground Games is working on, but right in the first images headline it says: "From 'The Berserk Project'. Sean Ray modeled Griffith and the demons. This is a personal project between Sean Ray and I, we're imagining what Berserk could look like as a show/film series." Also I highly doubt MS would have allowed such a huge leak like this to remain up and I'd doubt that this guy would risk his career doing so on his personal account. Great artwork though!
Agreed and while Berserk is an excellent manga/anime, I don't think it would be the project MS would want Playground to invest in for a triple A release.
Given Phil Spencer has all but confirmed the Fable game by them numerous times with subtle hints I would be absolutely shocked if they were working on anything but a new take on Fable.
Berserk is an interesting project name for it. Probably taking some inspiration from it to give brutal choices and outcomes depending on good and bad decisions. Every man for himself or choose to help and probably be duped.
I'm interested in what they're working on, but didn't they say it was a new open world IP? Many assumed it was the new fable, but even that goes against what they said. But your right. MS wouldn't have allowed a single piece of this work to make it to the internet if it was an actual work in progress. Playground is professional enough not to break NDA's for their own ego.
For anyone getting their hopes up, Gearnuke didn't do all their research. "From 'The Berserk Project'. Sean Ray modeled Griffith and the demons. This is a personal project between Sean Ray and I, we're imagining what Berserk could look like as a show/film series." Shame on Gearnuke.
Ummm.... Fable anyone?
Berzerk? Like the 1980's arcade game? I loved that when I was a kid..
No, the manga and anime series. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
Yeah I know, I was just joking. My poor attempt at humor.
lol....I get it. Now its funny!
They sure have the engine for it.
wow that would be incredible. a AAA developer working on a BERSERK IP?! That alone would sway me to buy a X1.
i have games pass and a onex,havent bought a single game for the console (ps4 main console). and ill get this too. Games pass ftw!
Um I thought it was obvious they were working on a new Fable game.
What else has the studio made besides Forza?
PLEASE BE TRUE....PLEASE BE TRUE!!!!
I’d actually play this!
Now this is the kinda news that makes me consider buying an Xbox
What's Berserk? Aside from most of the people on this site? Never heard of it.
Manga series from the 80s. Very mature + very good
Huge if true
If its true I really hope it releases on PC also.
I doubt it. Playground is a good developer but why take a risk?. I know MS need to take more risks. But Playground make a Berserk game? Gimme a break...
"From 'The Berserk Project'. Sean Ray modeled Griffith and the demons. This is a personal project between Sean Ray and I, we're imagining what Berserk could look like as a show/film series." So, no. They're not
I don't believe that excuse for a second. He's just embarrassed someone figured it out and trying to cover it up. Why would they make concept art for shows that already exist?
That text is the actual title of the image when you click on it - it wasn't added after, it was added at the time of upload. It's nothing to do with a game they are working on - anyone who believes it is are going to be disappointed.
That's to throw people off.
It doesn't exist. Concept artists do things like this all the time. Stop looking for things that aren't there.
