Uncharted 3 Behind The Scenes: Motion Capture
I don’t need to remind you that the release of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is less than a week away and you may have seen that the reviews are rolling in, including perfect scores from IGN, PlayStation Official Magazine UK, Destructoid, The Guardian and more.
These critics have all highlighted narrative and, in particular, the actors’ performances as particular strengths. It’s unusual, when you think about it, to be talking about performances in the context of a game, but it’s that marriage of technology and human acting, along with a great script and a skilled team of animators, that brings Drake, Sully and co. to life in such a believable way.
While we were in Jordan a few weeks ago – you may have seen our Treasure Hunt video here on the blog – we spoke with Nolan North and Emily Rose, the actors behind Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher, as well as Taylor Kurosaki and Arne Meyer from Naughty Dog, about how this performance capture process works.
We’ll have more behind the scenes videos for you in the run-up to the release of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. On a scale of one to ten, how much are you looking forward to it?
