The Old Republic.
With BioWare updating Star Wars: The Old Republic for 2021, our friends at EASports reached back out to our K+C CG/VFX team to create a logo bootflow animation in line with the previous beloved BioWare Anthem intro we had created. Our challenge was to up-res, re-texture, re-light and animate CG models of their Darth Malgus and Satele Shan characters.
As with all EA bootflow animations, there needs to be a lot happening within a quick 5-second animation. Although our CG/VFX team received some assets from the last game, we needed to re-create the new characters to hold up in a 4K delivery and bring them into the BioWare branded world.
