Continuing from the post showcasing the package art for Sony’s upcoming game, The Last of Us, below is the latest character development art for the game. After which, a short video clip explaining how motion capture software is used to develop movement in the game.
Before the video, we are proud to be able to share a new factfile on one of the game’s main characters: Tess.
A hardened survivor living in one of the last remaining quarantine zones, Tess operates in the black market of a city under martial law. Partners with Joel, they have become known within the criminal underworld for their ruthlessness. Street smart and confident, Tess is a savvy strategist and negotiator. Her ability to generate intelligent plans to secure the contraband for their trade is second to none.
Tess and Joel subscribe to the same dog-eat-dog philosophy. They survive by being willing to do what others can’t or won’t. Her trust inand loyalty towards Joel runs deep. However, secretly, she questions whether Joel shares the same emotions that she feels for him.
Below is the video, showing how the latest developments in motion capture software can result in some of the most realistic movement and lip-synching patterns gaming has seen in quite some time.
