Details on Unannounced Sony Santa Monica Game Revealed by Job Ads, Probably an Open World Title

During the PS4 launch event Sony Computer Entertainment teased a new title for PS4 by Sony Santa Monica, and today we get a few more details thanks to two new career opportunity ads published by the company for a Senior Level Designer and a Senior technical Designer.

The new ads include the lines “Sony Santa Monica is looking for a Senior Technical Designer for an unannounced title,” and “Sony Santa Monica is looking for a Senior Level Designer for an unannounced title, ” but the one looking for a level designer is even more interesting, because it gives us an idea on how the game will be.

  • open world level design.
  • ambient gameplay and side missions.
  • navigation/platforming challenges.
  • building 3D environments.
  • modeling and texturing.
  • designing and implementing fun/challenging AI layouts.
  • scripting entities.
  • placing rough cameras, including animated and entity-triggered cameras.
  • sound implementation.
  • level warping and gameflow.
  • cinematic placement and triggering.

The bolded elements definitely seem to point towards an open world game with triggered scripted events and cinematics, sidequests and “navigation/platforming” challenges, which reminds a lot of Assassin’s Creed IV and FarCry 3, with a bit of Grand Theft Auto V mixed in.

Of course we’ll have to wait for further details in order to know more about the game, but I can’t say my curiosity isn’t piqued.

    Open world scifi game written by Battlestar writer. If true this game is going to be unbelievable.

    I like the sound of this already…please let it be at VGX.

  • Cayal

    Arent they doing that streampunk-ish looking game announced at the PS4 unveiling? Or were they merely assisting another dev?
