They are at the centre of our games' development.
At Arrowhead, we have five main teams in our design department; Game Design, Level Design, UI Design, Narrative Design and Animation.
The Design teams work together a lot, but also very closely with Programming, Animation and Art, who help to make the magic work and bring the ideas to life.
Designers are hands-on with implementing ideas through the editor, scripting and light coding. And, since they are at the center of development, they are an important part of shaping the game.
The designers live by Arrowhead's three main pillars; Sociality, Playfulness and Believability.
Our designers come from all over the world.
The majority of our designers are based in Stockholm and are onsite at the office. Our designers love working together in the same space to get the energy and creativity flowing freely.
However, we also have a few designers in the team that work remotely from other locations in Sweden, the US, UK and even France!
Every holiday season, the designers come together and watch "The Ultimate Christmas Movie"; Die Hard. It's become a thing.
Warhammer 40K also has a solid fanbase throughout the entire design department.
