‘BioShock 4’ will be an open-world, quest-based title

Several new job listings have confirmed that the upcoming entry from 2K Games, BioShock 4, will be an open-world game.

Cloud Chamber and 2K Games are the ones who will develop BioShock 4, the next entry in its franchise. They recently listed few job roles on the website for various positions, revealing that they will set the title in an open world.

‘BioShock 4’ early details

The job listings also confirm that BioShock 4 will have many primary and secondary quests along with the open-world setting.

The website’s official description for the senior writer’s role reads:

“We’re hoping to find someone who can weave impactful, character-driven stories in an open world setting.”

It means that players will have huge maps to explore and interact with multiple surroundings.

Another role for the senior world designer mentions that the selected person will “design and create systemic world moments.”

There will be an essential focus on making the atmosphere of BioShock 4 more lively.

The AI programmer’s position demands someone who can “create a vision for a meaningful AI urban crowd system.”

Since there’s a mention of the crowd, it implies that NPCs will be important in this title. And the makers want them to be dynamic and intractable, rather than just present in the frame.

It will be interesting to see when all these plans come to life upon an eventual release of the popular series’s next entry.

New games in 2021

While the next BioShock will take its time to hit the stores, gamers won’t have to wait because this year is packed already with massive upcoming heavyweights.

When it comes to potential blockbusters, then some of them are Resident Evil Village, Halo Infinite, and Far Cry 6.

Horizon Forbidden West, a new Call of Duty entry, God of War: Ragnarok, and STALKER 2 are also highly anticipated.

But that’s not it!

The line-up extends further with the likes of Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Stray, Deathloop, Dying Light 2, and New World.

Back 4 Blood, Kena: Bridge of Spirit, Biomutant, Humankind, GhostWire: Tokyo, and Psychonauts 2 are other crucial launches.

Several recently announced projects to make their debuts soon are Glitchpunk, Etched Memories, and The Day Before. The latter will be a post-apocalyptic game, having an open-world, online co-op format for the players.

What do you think about all the major titles coming later this year and beyond? Are you excited and hyped for them or not?
