Project Wight, the Viking RPG from Battlefield and Payday devs where you play Gollum, shows off concept art
A year ago new developer The Outsiders revealed a gameplay trailer for their first game Project Wight, a mysterious RPG set in Viking times where you essentially play as Gollum from Lord of the Rings. We’ve had barely any information since then, but now a few pieces of concept art hint at what we can expect from the interesting title from the ex-DICE and Starbreeze developers.
You can see the reveal of Project Wight here, and it certainly looks interesting. Now co-founder of The Outsiders David Goldfarb, who was lead designer on Battlefield: Bad Company 2 at DICE and director of Payday 2 for Starbreeze, has taken to Twitter to show off some amazing concept art for the game by artist Piotr Jablonski – who himself has worked on Dishonored and Warhammer.
Project Wight certainly looks very intriguing, like a mix of a Gollum simulator and the Alien parts from the Aliens Vs Predator games once the creature becomes a more powerful adult. We especially like the idea of a first-person action RPG where you play as the four-legged monster rather than a human hero fighting monsters. You can check out the trailer below. Hopefully we won’t have to wait a full year before we see another brief glimpse of this game.
