At its core, Hyper Scape is an intense, fast-paced and vertical free-to-play FPS Battle Royale, but it’s also a brand new IP with a rich lore, an original story and a cast of unique and diverse characters. The cinematic trailer introduces the global narrative of Hyper Scape that will be developed season after season.
Platige Image has been involved in this cinematic trailer project since the very beginning, from the work on the script to setting up dynamic animation in line with the high-octane pace of the in-game action. One big focus was the creation of the hyper-realistic model for the main characters.
We became involved in this project very early in the global production of the game. We had access to its very first versions, and then to a constantly updated build at Ubisoft’s headquarters in Montreal. So, you might say that, together, we went through all the exciting but challenging phases of building of a new IP. We received a large dose of understanding, trust, and positive feedback at every stage of the production. – says Bartek Kik, Hyper Scape trailer director, from Platige Image.
For the mocap session we spent 5 days on the set, with 2 days for capturing the main elements and one day for try out, one for additional photos, and another for the faceware session. It was really key to showcase fluidity and dynamism in the movement, so we worked with the amazing Maciek Kwiatkowski and two fantastic parkour artists; Monika Mińska and Jakub Grossman. – adds Agata Bereś CG Producer at Platige Image.
Maintaining the animation-producing process after the pandemic was announced was one of the biggest challenges. Despite this unusual situation, work on the production was not interrupted and was carried out in accordance with the assumed schedule.
The trust received from Ubisoft is a reason to be proud and also a great responsibility. We are glad that, in this difficult time, we were able to commit to such an outstanding production.- concludes Piotr Prokop, Business Development Director at Platige Image.
The CGI trailer is released today as part of the announcement for the game’s official PC Open Beta. The full launch of Hyper Scape is planned for later this summer on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
