Faceware Brings New Faces to Star Wars Battlefront II

By November 17, 2017News

One of the biggest games of the year, the eagerly anticipated Star Wars Battlefront II releases today for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC. Gamers will be brought face-to-face with some of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars galaxy. Heroes from all three eras of the Star Wars universe take part in this epic adventure with characters old and new.

Star Wars Battlefront II features an all new cinematic story featuring Commander Iden Versio in a thrilling new narrative unfolding after the Return of the Jedi. As Commander of the elite special operations team, Iden and the Inferno Squad complete the missions that no one else can. Fearless, the Inferno Squad fights to restore order in the galaxy and save the Empire its most desperate hour.

Faceware is proud to have partnered with EA to bring the latest chapter in the Star Wars saga to life. With the latest installment in the Star Wars series, EA’s animation team raised the bar for facial animation, using Faceware’s ProHD Headcam System to enhance the performance capture of their live actors for the new cinematic story. Animators then applied the new level of detail to the characters’ performances using Faceware’s Analyzer 3.0 Studio Plus and Retargeter 5.0 Studio Plus software packages. The result is an impressive set of characters that create the brave new world of Star Wars Battlefront II.  See more in a behind the scenes video of the making of Star Wars Battlefront II.
