All in the name of research, Techland is now able to kick some serious ass with a sword thanks to developing Hellraid. Hellraid is their upcoming first-person slasher title and they want the game to have incredibly realistic sword fighting. In the video, they say how so many third-person action games have achieve that, but you rarely see that within first-person games that allow you to use a sword. While they’re not using motion capture, the head animator is working to make the slashes look as close to the real thing as possible.
Techland is now the most fierce developer.
As a fan of using swords in games but hating that, Elder Scrolls, look when you’re fighting, I salute them in their efforts. With a little fear and anxiety in my voice.
