A typical day at the office for Army of Two: 40th Day

EA Montreal has released a new trailer of Army of Two: The 40th Day. You won't see the game in action though as the trailer is really different from what we usually see. It's a sort of mix between CG characters and real people from EA Montreal and it's as funny as you'd expect.

Are those characters really CG? I mean the 2 from the game. That's extremely well done if they are. Especially the one playing the game in the sofa.

Yeah, I asked myself the same question, so I paused it a few times just to make sure. Indeed they were CG mixed with the real world in the most impressive way. Just pause the video a few times and check out the character's legs while he's sitting on the couch. Even when they were standing around the pool table made me skeptical, but they were also CG. The guys who put this trailer together are in the wrong business; this is definitely worthy of Hollywood material.

They just used an overlay of CG models on the real actors.

What? It's CG all the way through - it's not that hard to tell.

ah okay just reviewed in full screen i see it now, that really quite unnervingly well done fooled me at first glance:) i just assumed it was a low cost PR exercise but they obviously went to some effort.

I was fooled too initially, but you can tell by the skin and animations that it's CG.

Bravo on their part though - very impressive.

    GriftGFX I'm surprised that performance still matters to you now that the X1X is around lol (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX And I'd say that most "normal people" would find that performance at this spec beyond acceptable. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Translation: If DOOM is already running well on hybrid portable (in portable mode) what chance does their next game have of performing even better? I'd say those chances are pretty good, actually. (3 Hours ago)
