Fatshark urges gamers to get involved in the development process
Swedish developer Fatshark, best known for its work on Bionic Commando 2, has announced plans to bring its post-apocalyptic RPG, Krater to PC and Mac later this year.
Krater, which is Swedish for crater, takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the aftermath of a huge explosion has left enormous impact craters, and where cities and nations have “emerged from the rubble”.
The developer has promised players a myriad of features, which include the ability to join factions and groups, craft unique (weapons, items and abilities) and character persistence, where injuries and experience work in tandem to evolve the player’s team over long periods of time.
According to IGN, the game will also feature both single-player and multiplayer missions.
The site also reports that the game will take place in a nuclear devastated world, where a “powerful kinetic weapon” launched at a military compound has created a large crater revealing clean water and fresh soil.
The game is expected to be released online in June 2012, with the retail release following worldwide in August.
Fatshark is also looking for gamers to participate in the development process, which can be done by visiting the official Krater website.
