Developer: Guerrilla Games
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
After the massive success of Horizon: Zero Dawn Guerrilla Games released the DLC The Frozen Wilds in November 2017. The additional content consists of a new storyline with two new major characters taking place in the region of the Banuk. In the beautiful but unforgiving new winter area Aloy needs to fight brandew and lethal machines and has to overcome new challenges.
metricminds helped out to create the teaser trailer for E3 2017 and was responsible for turning Guerilla’s direction, previz and moacp data into 23 cutscenes, a total of ~32min including new characters and creatures.
The established processes from main production helped us start quickly and deliver on time. The content benefited from a high-level of collaboration; after scenes were camera and layout locked, Guerrilla took them back over for the phases of facial and final animation, lighting, vfx, and final integration.
