Uncharted’s Amy Hennig’s upcoming Star Wars title will make full use of motion capture recording.
Speaking to Glixel, Hennig outlined the benefits of using actual performance capture with actors together in a room, as opposed to the normal ‘one at a time’ procedure.
“There’s no such thing as ensemble recording in games, really,” Hennig says. “And that’s dumb, when you think about it, because acting is really reacting, and when you’re recording one actor doing a scene, they need to be reacting to something.”
Hennig’s unnamed Star Wars project will add to the canon of the universe, introducing new characters. , and does not yet have a release date.
