343 Industries is giving viewers an in-depth look at the development of Halo 4, with the first in a series of ‘making of’ videos. The ten minute video features behind the scenes footage of the motion capture technology used to create the animation for the likes of Cortana and Master Chief himself. As well as interviews with the various voice-talent behind the game’s characters.
Members of 343 Industries also speak about the game’s narrative, specifically how they are trying to convey humanity through the relationship between Cortana and Master Chief.
I applaud 343’s effort to want to engross the player in a meaningful relationship; it is always a difficult challenge when the primary gameplay focus is shooting bad guys.
Players can find out who has the greatest moral backbone later this year. Halo 4 will be released on November 6th, exclusively for the Xbox 360.
