Fool's Theory, a gang of games industry veterans who have worked on two of The Witcher games, are now building a new project called Seven. No, Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman aren't in it. Seven is billed as an isometric RPG inspired by the Thief series, and it's set in a "beyond post-apocalyptic" environment featuring a mix of ancient and highly advanced technology.
The game puts you in the worn-out shoes of a lone traveler, exploring a non-linear sandbox world called the Vetrall Empire. The exploring isn't going to happen on a single plane, however. Seven will apparently include a parkour-inspired climbing system, allowing the player to go over obstacles of any height. This sounds like a welcome change, as RPGs often feature incomprehensibly impassable ankle-height objects.
Seven is built on Unreal Engine 4, and is set to be released in the second half of 2016.
