GDC Europe 2011: Bulletstorm, The Settlers, Silent Hill and Zynga added to line-up

Four more heavy-hitting presentations have been added to GDC Europe’s schedule.

Epic’s Tanya Jessen will give a talk called “The Triforce of Courage: Bulletstorm’s Key Learnings on Global Distributed Development”. Bulletstorm was developed in Poland under the hand of Epic’s US offices.

Teut Weidemann will use The Settlers Online as just one example in a presentation on”F2P Online Games: The Game Is Not Enough”.

Matthew Seymour and Brian Gomez oh Vatra Games, the Czech studio developing Silent Hill: Downpour, will talk through the franchise’s history – and future – of making you feel like hiding under the bed.

Finally, the social gaming giant, Zynga, will make a showing, as Mike Skaggs talks “Designing Successful Social Games”. He’d know a bit about that, I’d say.

The new additions join what looks like a stellar line up, with Mass Effect, Crysis 2, Mortal Kombat and much more already announced.

GDC Europe, sister show to one of the US’s biggest trade events, kicks off on August 15 in Cologne, Germany.
