Topic: Visual Arts

Format: Session

Vault Recording: TBD

Audience Level: All

As a franchise we've always striven for industry leading visuals, but as a 6O FPS title this means we have to make very targeted investments in our priorities, specifically focused on the experience of driving at 100 MPH. This often means that specific individual assets might not hold up when stationary, but that the overall experience while driving is at the highest level. This talk will cover the extensive pre-production process we go through to establish what are the highest priority investments for us to make on a title and the painstaking process of isolating content budgets for each area.

Intended Audience

While the talk is presented from an art standpoint it should be useful to anyone who is interested in the strategies for how we prioritize our key investments to achieve industry leading visuals while also maintaining a strict performance budget.
