EA has posted a job opening for Narrative Designer for upcoming sports games. This might be a new turn for upcoming sports games that are leaning more towards story than before. Sports games are not known for their stories, but for the gameplay the genre provides.
Here is the full description of the position:
"The Narrative Designer will bring the player’s experience to explosive life in its story-telling mode, championing story to the team and ensuring that script, speech and story-telling devices are tuned to achieve a gripping emotional narrative experience.
You will create characters that game players fully embrace and bond to, and will capture emotional experiences that drive the story forward through non-linear storytelling techniques.
You’ll work closely with other designers and producers to create game worlds where story is core to the player experience and will drive an innovative story vision that is central to one of EA’s AAA titles."
