Human Element, an open-world first-person survival title developed by Nexon’s

Set 35 years after a zombie apocalypse, Human Element combines action,

maintaining the high visual fidelity of a first-person shooter (FPS).

“We are excited to work with Robotoki to bring this exciting game to consumers
in North America and around the world,” said Owen Mahoney, President and CEO
of Nexon. “This announcement marks an important milestone in the strategic
partnership we formed with Robotoki in February 2013 and furthers our goal of
developing groundbreaking, AAA quality free-to-play games.”

team is known for with the exciting MMO social experience and expertise of
Nexon, we are redefining the genre of survival games with an unprecedented
level of detail within an open-world experience.”
