From Software to expand with 100 new hires

Friday, 4th February 2011 02:23 GMT By Brenna Hillier

With two major international, cross-platform projects on its hands, it’s no wonder developer From Software has embarked on a recruiting campaign to source one hundred new employees.

According to Famitsu (Japanese), the Armored Core and Dark Souls developer is seeking new staffers in technical and art departments, but also administrative and management candidates.

The independent developer has launched a Facebook page promoting the drive, in addition to its standard careers site.

From Software intends to have the new staff in place by Japanese spring.

Namco Bandai recently revealed it will take on international publishing duties for both Armored Core 5 and Dark Souls after the success of its gamble on Demon’s Souls outside Japan.

    Easily one of the most underrated studios out there.

    Their portfolio is full of masterpieces. Games full to the brim with imaginative and exceptionally polished game design – Tenchu, Armoured Core, Ninja Blade, Demon’s Soul.

    #4 dont know shit

    FF13 was linear because it started out as a PS2 game.

    All openworld games are better on 360. fact.

    ps3 holds back multi releases not the other way round. fact.

    ps3 is last this gen. fact.

    ps3 will not catch up to 360. fact.
