now owns The Hunter franchise which looks to recreate the hunt of wildlife as realistically as possible. Well, it's about to go a bit pre-historic thanks to interns at Expansive Worlds mucking about.
What started as just playing around with the game engine has led to theHunter: Primal being released in a few weeks’ time. Expansive claims this has even helped their main project out.
"In the last couple of years we have received numerous requests to add dinosaurs to theHunter. We’ve always felt that a game around hunting dinosaurs in a Jurassic environment could potentially be a lot of fun, but also worried that it would undermine the realism and credibility of theHunter, qualities that made many players fall in love with the game,"the Swedish studio.
"Even within the studio, dinosaurs has been a frequent topic of discussion. It really took off as a small breakout team started creating a dinosaur game as a side project, working after hours and over weekends. Avalanche Studios and Expansive Worlds management supported the initiative and offered the group of enthusiasts to use the Avalanche Engine that you know and love from theHunter, as the official development platform."
