EA's Redwood Shores studio is currently developing a next-gen RPG under the working title Project Gray Company and is inviting gamers to offer comments on the design of the game as more details are revealed.
Few details with regard to format choice and gameplay style have been released to date. Instead the game is described as a next-gen RPG providing an "experience that allows the player to be the hero in an expansive open world".
We also know that the game will use the same AI technology as was used in The Sims 2 and will be structured around a number of story quests.
While there's no information about the plot or in what type of world the game will be located, the small offering of concept art on Project Gray Company's official website suggests it will have a typical fantasy, Dungeons & Dragons style setting.
Project Gray Company's forum invites discussion on what makes a great RPG and asks gamers to offer comments on the design of the game as more details are revealed. To log on and make sure that Natasha Bedingfield doesn't show up in it, go to www.ea.com/official/projectgraycompany.
