Third Party Action RPG in development for PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, Open World with Ray Tracing and more

Exciting next-gen news coming today as apparently a Third Party Action RPG is currently in development for the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.

The game is said to be fully Open World with a scale that outperforms benchmark titles like The Witcher 3, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon: Zero Dawn. The game also includes Ray Tracing technology which was confirmed to be supported by the two next-gen consoles.

The tidbit comes from ‘Kleegamefan’, an old Gamefan editor, who commented on a game he saw back June. He was verified by ZhugeEX later on.

When asked further about the game, he gave us the following info:

Wanted to answer some general questions about what I saw.

Game was not shown behind closed doors at e3

Really early

Running on PS5

I didn’t see Scarlett so I can’t directly compare

Framerate wasn’t always smooth….seemed to be in the 20-30fps range

Open world and the scope was unbelievable. Never seen anything like it…far beyond Witcher/BOTW/HZD

Even so, close up details were beyond anything I have seen before

Ray Traced reflections….looks really impressive

Dynamic destructable environments…this game is just WTF

When I asked him about the SSD, he got visably nervous. Didn’t want to talk about it at all.

As good as it looks, I get the feeling this isn’t a launch game, really early.

That’s all I can think of for now.. I should be able to get more information when I go back in October. I will see if I can share anything else at that time.

And what’s great is that the game was running in real time, as it was intended to be used as an internal studio milestone.

When asked what the game was, with some commenting Cyberpunk 2077 due to it being suggested to be a third party title, ‘Kleegamefan’ stated that the game was a completely new IP and was an Action RPG. The project doesn’t even have a name yet.

When asked to elaborate on the “world detail”, here’s what ‘Kleegamefan’ had to say:

World detail of The Order 1886+miles long draw distance+fully dynamic world destruction + Ray Traced reflections.

It didn’t look very polished like those nVidia/Unreal/Unity demos but at the same time beyond and I could imagine running on an Xbox One X or Pro

So yeah, not like a current game, but not like a GDC demo either. You would have to see it yourself to understand because I can’t quite articulate it properly because I can’t compare it to anything else.

What do you think this game could be? Who do you think the developer is? I’m putting my money on Ubisoft. Put your guesses in the comments below.
