Been looking on Obsidian's website...

Found this job advertisement:

"Obsidian Entertainment now has openings for a lead area/level designers, senior area/level designers, and intermediate area and level designers for a console action-based role-playing game. Check out the job postings and see if you have what it takes!"

Now, Neverwinter Nights 2, which is a game they are developing, I THINK I'm right in saying will be developed for PC only. In any case, I think they would have already filled all the positions for that particular development.

So what do we think this 'console action-based role-playing game' is then?

Speculate away.

PS. Sorry if someone's mentioned this already, I did have a look down the first page of threads but couldn't find anything.

I hope it isn't K3, since they are refering to a console action RPG.

Yea, but couldn't you call the KotOR series an "Action RPG?" I know calling Kotor an action game isn't totally accurate but I could see it called that.

And as far as the console part, K1 and K2 where console games. They where just converted to the PC. Isn't that why they came out on PC about a month later?

I'm not saying it is K3. Just that I don't see why it can't be from the press release.

Not nessesarily. It could just mean that they spent a little more time on the pc version to clean up some bugs or to improve gameplay. Of course, they might have been messing with us fans, making us wait longer.

I don't think so. To me that refers more to something like Jade Empire.

I think you could. It involves action (the fighting) and is an rpg (the talking).

Perhaps, Obsidian has decided to take the Bungie approach with this game.

"We're working on a 'special new project'."

Bungie has been teasing Halo fans about their 'special project' until E3 - when they finally showed off the Halo 3 trailer and admitted that the 'special project' was indeed Halo 3.

Just a thought.

It's not Lucas Arts related.

Well, once (i wil no longer say "if", i will be optimistic about this) they begin work on KOTOR 3, I hope they take their time with it, making it as good as it can be.


And if LucasArts wants sales, they will do the smart thing and LET OBSIDIAN TAKE THEIR TIME WITH THE GAME.

Hang in there LucasArts.

$$$ will come.

Oops.

@dowon: I'm sorry if this makes me look like an idiot, but what you mean with 'IP'? I'm being a dumbass again, sorry.

I think it means 'Intellectual Property'. Basically they're working on their own ideas, instead of using a licence, such as Star Wars.

Action based rpg is definitly not Kotor or a Kotor like game for that matter.

An action rpg would be Diablo for instance, which heavily relies on real time combat (diablo is extremely boring).

I agree, KOTOR is definately not an action RPG. Good modern examples of an action RPG are game like TESIV:Oblivion or VTM:Bloodlines or Jade Empire where the combat is real time and not turned based. Bioware did a great job of disguising the fact that KOTOR was turned based, but under the hood it is still the dungeon & dragons rule system running the game. Or D20 anyway.

Diablo was brilliant in its time, but yah, by today's standards it is very boring.

Uncle Billy Gates paid LucasArts to have the games first on the Xbox system.

I'll believe it when I see it officially announced by LucasArts.
