Quotes

"We started looking at that as a core type element that even for the upgrade and the weaponry, having this entire elemental system became part and parcel of not just a cool way to upgrade our weapons, but also making it part of the world’s fiction."
"We have a very deep loot system, much deeper than we did on Guardian," says Scot. He adds, "Think of a classic Diablo or Borderlands where you can have white being common up to orange being legendary. We’ve emulated that with us using more metals as our source. We have iron, bronze, silver and gold. You get these items that have different levels of rarity that then have different abilities. Some have positives and negatives, others are amulets you can charge up that affect the entire team." Excellent items for looting will keep players coming back over time...
..." Scot adds, "Even on the aiming side to be honest, some of the shots we were making, we didn’t have bullet magnets on. On a tech side, that means if your aiming towards someone, and our version at E3 had to be so crazy accurate to be able to hit them, it was a very, very sever skills test."
The prophecy of Osiris is the main focus of the game. The game will have new types of puzzles, environments, and enemies because of it. Scot states, "Because of how we’ve laid out the actual prophecy, the myth of Osiris, they’ve gone across some of the classic Egyptian gods and deities, but we have other ones that are masters of their realm or domain. As a result, you’ll actually be going into new types of puzzles, new types of rooms, new types of tombs. Those have a different set of fiction, that have puzzles that start mixing an matching different types of enemies even, so you start getting a blend of what this evil character is. It’s not just isolated on a corner; it literally starts to spread across the entire world." Scot wants anything but redundancy in Temple of Osiris
