BioShock 4 Job Listings Point to Open-World Title with RPG Mechanics Picture : 2K Games

The BioShock trilogy is largely determined by the big worlds (i.e. Rapture and Columbia), so it is not surprising that the developer of the fourth part, Cloud Chamber Games, doubles the world construction and looks beyond the roots of the FPS franchise. Job postings discovered by the company MauroNL (via VG247) suggest that BioShock 4 will bring a page of games like Fallout 4 to the open world and will use an advanced dialogue system to create its own story.

The application page for Lead Systems Designers seems to give a lot of credibility to open world theory, because it especially encourages people with experience in developing a new sandbox world.

Our ideal candidate has an innate sense of how game systems connect and reinforce each other in the emerging sandbox world, as well as the characters and reactions needed for an intuitive gaming experience, Cloud Chamber Games writes.

In the meantime the main page of the voice designer confirms that BioShock 4 will be a narrative project that will have some kind of complex dialogue system.

We would like to ask you to support us in the development of dialogue systems, asset management and tools for the project, according to the list. With the vision of the audio and creative directors as your guide, you will help create a world-class voice design for the next BioShock. It is an ambitious, narrative project, full of character and personality. Think of the possibilities!

Finally, the list of Game AI programmers suggests that BioShock 4 takes place in a densely populated environment consisting of several NPCs and/or enemy fighters.

Someone who will lead the evolution of our AI systems in a strong narrative and systemic game, asked for the Cloud Chamber. We have great ambitions to combine AI and storytelling and you are responsible for crystallising these ambitions around multiple AI systems. They will work closely with the designers to complete the projects and complete the implementation of the urban human collection system and the tribal ecology system, which is sometimes hostile to AI.

Ken Levin, the inspiration behind the original games of BioShock (2007) and BioShock Infinite (2013), will not participate in the fourth game in an official capacity, but Cloud Chamber director Kelly Gilmore has promised that her team will understand the expectations of BioShock fans. She also confirmed that some veterans of the franchise will develop the game.

We are lucky to have BioShock DNA in our roots, said Gilmore GamesRadar. Several members of our team have played important roles in other BioShock titles and are currently leading the development of Cloud Chamber, including Hoagy de la Plante (Creative Director), Scott Sinclair (Art Director) and Jonathan Pelling (Design Director).

Our team also includes game development veterans from famous franchises such as Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed, Star Wars, Battlefield and Walking Dead. As part of our recruitment efforts, we are looking for people with different backgrounds and experiences. I am sure that the depth and diversity of the experience in game development in the Cloud Chamber will lead to another unforgettable experience with BioShock.

and progress, and the balance between game and economy. This could show a more open construction, similar to the open world based on a hub in Bioshock 1&2 instead of the more linear approach of endless Bioshock. Also in AI, the developer is trying to take a step forward…
