I'm proud to announce that the NDA has finally been loosened by Epic Games, we have unreal engine 4. Having said that, Network is currently in the process of being ported and developed in unreal engine 4. We've had the engine for quite some time now and have made significant progress in-engine which will be shown off in images/videos over the coming weeks. Having said all of the above, successful applicants will have the chance to work on our team within Unreal Engine 4.
Network is an up-coming free-to-play First Person Shooter game set in its own unique sci-fi world. The game focuses on tight combat, a dense atmosphere, and high quality visuals. The game is multiplayer only, meaning maximum quality of the game in that regard bringing you pure multiplayer brilliance. Network has its own class and ranking system, filled with persistent options to enhance your character with new gear, items, and personalization options alongside a wide variety of new innovative undisclosed features. Whether playing as the nimble Scout class or the beefy Tank class, Network strives to deliver game play and interactivity on a level that most free-to-play FPS games can’t match.
Virtus Studios has been in the video game industry for a quite a while now, I personally began my journey through game development through producing a few different in-depth series of video tutorials on how to mainly use unreal development kit and various other different game development related software packages and was somewhat successful. Over the past year, we have been taking it one step further and begun development of our first up-coming title "Network". Since founding Virtus Studios in early 2012 we have grown to become a large team of 15+ members all with a strong background in game development that are dedicated to the task and striving to create the highest quality content possible for Network. Although we have a somewhat large team, we are always looking new members with the same passion and motivation to bring our concept to life.
Virtus Studios is gearing up production for a futuristic First Person Online Multiplayer Game, with an expected release in 2014. Our goal is to deliver a detailed and polished multiplayer experience that will keep people coming back for more which is stylized and unique whilst still creating something that is high quality whilst being sustainable financially. Currently, we are making progress in the 3d, concept and design departments however we are still looking for additional animators and 3d environmental artists as a priority, We still do have a few open positions as listed below. That said, we are looking for anyone who is really good at what they do and have the same goals and ambitions to work alongside us on bringing our concept to reality, if you are interested, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Virtus Studios are looking for dedicated members who strive to create the best possible content however it is royalty based position as of now (Which may change later on once we go commercial), We are able to offer a fast paced professional team which allows applicants to learn and gain experience whilst working in a large and well managed professional team environment through our workflow which is easy to pick up and execute whilst adding to your CV/Portfolio for a career in the gaming industry and all we ask is that you do a few things in return which are mutually beneficial.
