You’ll Feel Really There in Advanced Warfare
Yesterday, Activision released a brand new campaign trailer of Sledgehammer Games‘ Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which once again looked great in terms of graphics. In an interview with VentureBeat, Art Director Joe Salud and Director of Product Development Aaron Halon explained that their goal is to players to really feel like they’re in the thick of the action.
We’re trying to cross the line of what’s believable and realistic. We’re trying to immerse you more. One of the visual tools for doing that is fooling your eye into thinking you’re there. Giving you at least that impression. If that impression comes through, you’re not going to be concentrating on the graphics so much. You’ll just enjoy the experience. You’ll feel like you’re really there.
They did a lot of research on real locations in order to achieve this, apparently:
We had the art team go out to the Golden Gate Bridge and do a lot of color grading tests. For other, more exotic locations, we would find proxies. We’d go on a ship or something like that for things like the later part of the San Francisco levels.
Well, screenshot like the one you can see above certainly attest to the studio’s work. Since many developers in Sledgehammer Games have been among the original creators of Dead Space, it’s reasonable to hope for a more engaging single player campaign than usual for the franchise, although ultimately Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be judged for its multiplayer, which is going to be revealed on 11th August for the first time.
Stay tuned on Worlds Factory for everything on the game leading to the November 4th launch.
