Dying Light 2 developer Techland has taken the always-puzzling step of announcing an ‘unannounced’ game. While the studio, which has made a name for itself producing open-world zombie games, isn’t ready yet to talk about the story or even the title, it says it is working on a triple-A, open-world RPG game that it describes as a “fantasy epic,” and it’s recruited some top game development talent to help build it.
While story specifics are scarce at the moment, Techland has shared a first piece of concept art for the upcoming RPG game (above). A figure in traveler’s robes stands in the foreground, gazing out over a confluence of two rivers that spill over waterfalls. Ancient ruins and statues are built on the banks, with a network of crumbling pillars and archways still standing in the turbulent water.
The scene appears to be set in a mountain jungle or rainforest setting, and the ruins appear to be influenced by ancient Roman and Aztec styles. In the distance, more structures can be seen. One of these has a green tiered roof, reminiscent of east Asian pagodas.
