Two new occupation postings for EA Sports have appeared on the distributers careers page. Then again, the employment title for both is “Narrative Designer,” not something that comes in your mind about the Madden or FIFA arrangement. The full depiction of what an “Account Designer” is at EA is recorded as,
“The Narrative Designer will bring the player’s experience to explosive life in its story-telling mode, championing story to the team and ensuring that script, speech and story-telling devices are tuned to achieve a gripping emotional narrative experience.”
“You will create characters that game players fully embrace and bond to, and will capture emotional experiences that drive the story forward through non-linear storytelling techniques.”
“You’ll work closely with other designers and producers to create game worlds where story is core to the player experience and will drive an innovative story vision that is central to one of EA’s AAA titles.”
While this is not an official affirmation that a story mode is impending soon to say, Madden 2016, it could mean EA is attempting another heading for the profession and franchise modes. What was beforehand you, the anonymous coach, driving a group to the Superbowl or World Cup could develop into you, a named character with a backstory and inspiration, encountering a story bend attached nearly to the season of whichever game you play.
One of the perfect franchie for a narrative touch would be SSX, which last saw a discharge in 2012 under “SSX” from EA Canada, a direct backup group of EA Sports. SSX (2012) had a story mode, and past recessions all had fictional characters made for the arrangement.
