The gaming industry has advanced plentiful in the past few decades, and one of the ways a game enhances the fidelity of animations, not to mention the acting for narrative games, is through Motion Capture.
One of the upcoming games, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, makes good use of it, and according to the most recent updates, it looks like they are done with Motion Capture for the game. The information comes from IdleSloth on Twitter, who has a good record of such inside information, not to mention his tweet also showed the picture of the dev team working on this part of the game.
(FYI) Ninja Theory has finished the motion capture work of Senua's Saga: Hellblade II
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II suffered heavily due to the recent pandemic, and with their operations delayed, this is a long-awaited day for both the community and developers.
Now that the Motion Capture is done and wrapped up, we can see more updates on their other segments since Ninja Theory likes to keep the fanbase updated with its development.
Ninja Theory has been somewhat suffering in past years due to the pandemic. It halted the development of some crucial game parts, but their patience has finally paid off. Hellblade: Senua’s’ Sacrifice, the prequel, came out in 2017 and was massively praised for its quality.
As such, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II has been taking its sweet time to reach that level of quality and compete with the AAA games that rank on top of the charts. Considering they are now done with the Motion Capture, we can expect the rest of the development to move much faster.
It is good news because they can finally implement the scenes from Motion Capture and adjust the animation to the game’s content. So, the game is going well, and we can all have a pause of relief as we wait for further official announcements.
Fans had become pessimistic about the game’s development, but now they can rest assured. Even then, it is unlikely that we will hear something about the game in the big events coming next month. But we can still hope for the best.
That’s all for today; what do you think of Ninja Theory’s efforts in the game’s development? Do you think we will receive a game that can quench the thirst we have been controlling these past few years? Share your thoughts with us below, and we will get back to you!
