Launched in 2015, the MMORPG Black Desert stood out from other games in the genre with a dynamic combat system with impressive animations. Pearl Abyss credits this achievement with its own motion capture studio, founded in 2014.
Today the company is working on an online adventure action game Crimson Desert and for the implementation of animations, the developers have further expanded the capabilities of the motion capture unit, as reported to the South Korean press. For example, it has been announced that the number of offices will be increased to three with an area of 14 m² each (previously there was only one room of 10 m²). Also added were 120 16-megapixel cameras costing 15,000 euros apiece and a variety of sensors capable of recording finger movements on gloves and the human body.
In addition, the number of scenery, the staff of actors and stuntmen was increased, even horses and other animals were hired. According to Pearl Abyss, this way performers will be able to better play the simulated roles, as well as understand the universe or the behavior of the characters and monsters they help bring to life.
Recall that the release of Crimson Desert is scheduled for the winter of next year, but details about the project are still little known. It is possible that the invitation to the South Korean press is the start of a campaign to promote the game and more will be revealed in the coming weeks or months.
