Not exactly a major piece of news, however DuPz0r™ has just brought it to my attention that Rockstar North are recruiting for a number of positions.

I would have applied a position as I'm currently concept drawing. But i haven't finished my degree (not even half way through) so i wouldn't get the job.

Maybe I'll apply some time in the future.

Would "Admin of GTA4.TV" qualify as previous jobs? tongue.gif

I'd love to apply for the games tester position, but unfortunately I start uni in 2 weeks and that's me sorted for the next 3 years... Maybe once I finish my course... Then again, by then I should be looking at game development rather than game testing.

DuPz0r
They had recruiting up a couple of years ago, but that was for gta4. This has been put up again since then.

Who knows, but looking at R* North's list of games you could probably assume it's for a GTA of some kind (although not necessarily GTA V)

Rockstar North always make the GTA's.

They could be making a new game but to be honest I think there probably making more DLC for the 360 and new (different) stuff for the PS3.

Games Tester doesn't mean playing beta (or alpha?) versions of games all day and letting the devs know the bugs you found does it? jawdrop.gif

Testing is very repetitive though. I'd imagine many testers are pretty much sick of the game they're testing by the time it's released.

Do they just play the game like normal and make note of any bugs they come across, or do they actually have to test specific parts of they game? Is there more than one person testing one game and each person tests a different part of the game?

From what I've seen in behind-the-scenes videos, it's usually a team of testers that focus on one area at a time, although there might be multiple teams. Basically they play through the game and do whatever they can to bring out any bugs. If they find one, they'll recreate it and send the info off to the programmers who'll issue a fix. Then it goes back to the testers to see if the fix has worked, and whether it has or it hasn't, the cycle repeats. It's a constant to-ing and fro-ing thing that can last for months on end.

From what I've heard testing can be as boring as jumping up and down on one spot a thousand times. Not a job you'd want if you hope to still like the game you're testing afterwards.
