Former Bodycount Dev Reveals "Unlawful" Treatment

Codemasters Claim They're Remedying The Situation

You remember Bodycount, right? Once headed up by Burnout and Black director, Stuart Black, the exciting shooter crumbled under the weight of his departure and an overall hierarchical meltdown within Codemasters. So dire was the financial situation that a certain former Bodycount programmer, Semi Essessi, reveals Codemasters owed him almost 400 hours of overtime pay, and then threatened him with bankruptcy proceedings when the funds were "mistakenly" paid to him. Codemasters, however, claims they're in talks with Essessi in hopes of remedying the situation.

Let The Bodies Hit The Floor: Bodycount Launch Trailer Features New Gameplay Footage

Bodycount is getting a bit of a bashing in some quarters, probably because Codemasters have been very overt is stressing that this game has not been designed to simply fit in with FPS convention. The team are hoping it'll do something different rather than subscribe to the Call of Battlefield template, and we have to admit we saw glimmers of that back at E3.

The time for theorising is almost at an end, though, with the game due to hit store shelves imminently, and we'll have a critical appraisal for you of the finished product soon. In the meantime, stick the launch trailer in your face and discuss whether or not the music in the video is appropriate or not.

Just a thought.

The first of these videos was basically just virtual gun porn...which is fine for an FPS. It's good to get the basics right, after all. But those still with questions over how Codemasters' Bodycount will prove to be any different to just another COD clone would do well to check this latest dev diary out.

We were quietly impressed with how Bodycount was coming along when we saw it back at E3, the arcade, OTT stylings making for some intense firefights, with a largely destructible environment and defiantly innovative lean mechanic particularly standing out for us. In addition to that, though, there are guns. Lots and lots of guns.

Matt got hands-on with terrain-shredding shooter Bodycount at E3 this month, and while he wasn't utterly convinced by the once-Stuart Black helmed title, he came away very impressed with the destruction tech and vivid visuals. It looked in much better shape than it did a year ago, and now Codemasters have announced when we'll be 'shredding' things up in Bodycount.
