Superannuation is reporting that Bungie are asking steampunk fans to turn up to a photoshoot event, that’s being held in anticipation of the studio’s upcoming “steampunk game”.
The advert, which you can see below, specifically requests Victorian military, Pirate-y themed or Naval costumes as they will “suit the game quite well”.
This is the first we’ve heard about Bungie’s next project, after they left the Halo franchise in the hands of 343 Industries and partnered with Activision to create a ‘new universe’. Whether or not this is related to that same project, we don’t know but the advert is below and we’ll keep you updated with any new information that we get.
Calling all Greater Seattle steampunks! I need people to show up in steampunk finery to have photos taken for video game artwork for a steampunk game currently in development. Wear your own steampunk clothing or show up and we’ll put you in costume. Snacks and beverages will be provided and a good time will be had by all!
If you have steampunk outfits that are Victorian British military, French military, Confederate or Pirate-y themed, please bring them, as they would suit the game quite well. (extra points for Naval military themes)
Also, any photographers willing to donate their time are more than welcome to bring a camera and their skills so that we may have more coverage of the fabulous-looking people who are sure to be there.
Friday, June 3rd 9am – 8pm Bungie Studios 550 106th Avenue NE Bellevue, WA
