Those animations look amazing!! Great job!

Very cool review of the making of Spellbreak. Would be even more cool to see some videos inside UE4 showing how they do a few very specific things unique to them.

This was so helpful for me. I'm hoping to adapt your tutorial to pull off something similar comparing modern satellite imagery with historical maps. No topo, so my steps should be simpler, but I'm a novice with Blender and you've really helped. Thanks!

Remedy Bets On Multiplayer Experience
16 September, 2016

What comes next for the creators of Max Payne? First of all, they are working on CrossFire 2 story mode. Then they have Northlight, their proprietary game engine. Yet, something is missing. Remedy has decided to focus on cooperative multiplayer. Their games have always been about single player story, but now it is seems they want to try something new.

Original Statement

We’re dreaming up new things, so this felt like the perfect time to share some thoughts on a key component we’ve been planning and even prototyping at Remedy for years, but never committed to – until now.

As announced last July, we’re busy working on CrossFire 2 story mode with Smilegate, as well as building something totally new with a second (as of yet unannounced) game project. This includes working on the long-term roadmap for Northlight, our proprietary game engine and tools.

As an independent studio in the highly competitive games business, it is crucial to constantly evaluate and define our direction. We want to keep doing and improving on what we do best: exciting stories, memorable characters, believable worlds and cinematic action.

Single-player experience has always been an important focus for us. At the same time, we want to challenge ourselves to find ways to also expand these elements to include cooperative multiplayer.

We will always strive to be the best storytellers we possibly can, and we want these stories to be shared and elevated through players’ cooperation. We believe that a multiplayer experience combined with Remedy’s unique world-building provides an exceptional environment for that.

We will be building our Northlight technology and design step by step, through multiple future projects toward this ambitious goal.

So with that in mind, we have opened a position for a Lead Network Programmer, who will be at the center of developing and shaping the multiplayer technology and features of Northlight.
