Bethesda Softworks Battlecry Announcement Trailer

Continuing to propel its growing portfolio of game work forward, this epic first-look trailer expanded Psyop’s creative limits in an action-driven, high-noon style cinematic. Pushing the boundaries of photo-real CG, the trailer includes 52 shots of ornately decorated sets, highly detailed characters, intricate FX, a custom built facial rig, in depth storylines and powerful, fast paced combat sequences.

“We filmed real fighters at my friend’s martial arts studio. They put on their pads and showed us real moves, with real weight, real contact and real reactions. It helped us move away from this notion of Hollywood fighting, which is scripted and beautifully choreographed, and helped us realize the raw, Old Western take on war that we were all driving towards creating.”

– Gerald Ding, Director
