A44 Games Share a Behind the Scenes Look at Environment and Character Design in Their Upcoming Action-RPG
[LONDON, 11 May, 2022] – A44 Games® and Kepler Interactive®, are delighted to further draw back the curtain on Flintlock®: The Siege of Dawn in their latest behind the scenes look at the game.
From the team behind Ashen, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is an epic adventure where players join Nor Vanek, a member of the coalition army, and her mysterious companion Enki, working together to seek revenge on the gods, cutting a swath through an army of the undead that wait in their path. Join A44 Games’ Art Director, Robert Bruce, and Principal Environment Artist, Steven Chen, as they share details of the rich and vibrant world the studio has created as the backdrop to their tale.
For the behind the scenes look at the world of Flintlock check out the video below:
Inspired by the nature and landscapes of A44’s native New Zealand, Flintlock is aesthetically diverse which not only influences the game’s visuals but also adds a depth and fullness to this brand-new world. From towering citadels to cavernous ruins and far-reaching desert sands, Flintlock is designed for exploration and rewards players who go the extra mile to uncover even more.
Alongside environmental design, Bruce and Chen shed light on Flintlock’s character design, and the high level of detail in every encounter that players will have with the gods that rule the game’s world. As a small studio, A44 are at the forefront of design leveraging tools such as Unity’s MetaHuman Creator to bring their characters to life through highly detailed animation.
Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn will be available later this year for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, PC (via STEAM® and Epic Games Store®), Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One – available day one with Xbox Game Pass. For more information visit www.playflintlock.com
