Kahraman assures us that this is not the case, and that this is not the way they had hoped to announce a new game: “It bothered me a little because we as a team are so excited to have a little bit of our game. teasing and then comes this conspiracy. ”Kahraman continued. “All I wanted to do is tease our game. As for our social media presence, we’re a small team and not a big AAA studio, it’s already hard work to work on a very polished game for PS5, so that we really can’t. set aside the time to work on our social media presence full-time (when it’s important). “
Kahraman ignored the misunderstanding and also shared some more details about the game with IGN. Blue Box has been working on Abandoned since 2017 and the studio’s original goal was to create a tactical shooter with cinematic storytelling and realistic gameplay. “We wanted to make something different from traditional shooting games,” said Kahraman. “We wanted to make a game that feels real. Like reloading, you get to see the whole animation during a fight. Or if you get hit, you really have to stop the bleeding to keep fighting.”
Kahraman talks about several game situations that will realistically affect a character’s stability: “For example, if you get hit in the legs, you will fall down, so you cannot equip your firearm by dropping it to the ground. should eventually choose to take your firearm and fight or to stop the bleeding and cleanse the wound to avoid getting sick, “Kahraman adds.” This is not going to be a comforting fight. I promise. “
Kahraman says the game’s realistic environmental images were achieved through photogrammetry and retopology of the models (a process that requires high-quality images and scales them down for more efficient use), and was enhanced by the PS5’s power. “The PS5 console is powerful enough to play these images at 4k resolution,” Kahraman notes. “However, optimization is needed to run the game at 60 FPS. At the end of the teaser you will see heavy cam shakes and frame drops. The animation will not be final once the cam shake is removed and the frame rate will increase. up to 60 fps, unlike the teaser video. “
Abandoned – Screenshots of the PS5 Exclusive
According to Kahraman, the game also “relies” on the DualSense wireless controller and makes good use of the PS5’s immersive benefits. “The feel and sound of the controller would change depending on whether your firearm was loaded or unloaded. 3D audio is used for tactical purposes, such as determining the distance between you and the enemy.” they add.
Much like Kojima’s own PT (which was intended to be a teaser for the canceled Silent Hills), or the recent Resident Evil demos, a “minor teaser” for Abandoned will be available for download on PS5 before release, but Kahraman says the studio “can’t say more about it just yet. We’re also thinking about running a closed alpha test on PS5 some time later, but that’s not 100% certain.”
Abandoned PS5’s exclusive 2021 offers include Returnal (April), Ratchet and Clank: A Rift Apart (June) and Horizon Forbidden West (TBA 2021). We also have an overview of all the studios from Sony’s first party and what they are working on.
