Creating Cinematics - Guild Wars 2 -

If all the heady Guild Wars 2 news out of GamesCom in Germany isn't enough, be sure to swing by the GW 2 blog and check out the 'Creating Guild Wars 2 Cinematics' video just posted. The video stars Horia Dociu, Cinematics Lead. Check out the proprietary animation software and how devs use it to create awesome 2D cinematics to give life to the backstory. The incredible part? Your character will have a part in these new cinematics.

Watch all the way through to see the very first cinematic from the game.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so we’re letting our art do the talking with our new 2.5D animated storybook cinematics.

A strong narrative has always been important in Guild Wars, and cinematics are one of the many tools we use to present the story in a dynamic way. In Guild Wars 2, we’ve reinvented the way we use cinematics to tell the story. We utilize proprietary animation software that renders 2D cinematics in real time, so your player will appear inside the brilliant animated illustrations.

In this video, we’ll take a look at the artistic process for creating the stylized new look, and we’ll check out a section of the GW2 human race cinematic, which players will see in the gamescom demo. I hope you like what you see!
