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
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (14 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (14 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (14 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (14 Hours ago)
