This year PAX Prime will host quite a few video game related panels, and the schedule includes a quite interesting one if you’re a fan of Uncharted, inFAMOUS or Titanfall.
The two sides of this year’s console war will be brought together in a conference about combat in AAA games, and the cast is definitely an exceptional one: Naughty Dog Game Designer Anthony Newman and Doug Holder, Sucker Punch Visual Effects Artist Matt Vainio and Game Designer Darren Bridges and Respawn Entertainment Lead Designer Justin Hendry and Lead Artist Joel Emslie.
The panel will be held on Saturday August 30th at 4:30 PM, and is summarized as follows:
Triple-A action games have to deliver on two fronts: gameplay has to be fresh and satisfying, but the experience also has to be visceral and visually striking. This panel will take you behind the scenes to show how the most memorable and intense moments of game combat are created. Join panelists from Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, and Respawn, as they pull back the curtain on the techniques, tricks, and details that create these uniquely intense experiences.
Most of the panels normally get on YouTube afterwards, so even if you aren’t attending, there’s a very good chance that you’ll be able to watch it soon after. Of course you can expect to hear from us about any juicy details which might be revealed.
