Are you looking forward to the release of Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn later this year, when A44 Games and Keplar Interactive drop their epic adventure to Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Game Pass? You could do worse than check out how those teams have brought the game to life, with a rare behind-the-scenes look at development.
Giving in-depth looks at the environment and character design, it’s A44 Games and Kepler Interactive who are delighted to further draw back the curtain on Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn in their latest behind the scenes look at the game.
It’s coming from the team behind Ashen, with Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn being an epic adventure where players join Nor Vanek, a member of the coalition army, and her mysterious companion Enki, working together to seek revenge on the gods, cutting a swath through an army of the undead that wait in their path.
The latest trailer allows us the chance to join A44 Games’ Art Director, Robert Bruce, and Principal Environment Artist, Steven Chen, as they share details of the rich and vibrant world the studio has created as the backdrop to their tale. You’ll see the video below these words.
Inspired by the nature and landscapes of A44’s native New Zealand, Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is aesthetically diverse which not only influences the game’s visuals but also adds a depth and fullness to this brand-new world. From towering citadels to cavernous ruins and far-reaching desert sands, Flintlock is designed for exploration and rewards players who go the extra mile to uncover even more.
Alongside environmental design, Bruce and Chen also shed a bit of light on Flintlock’s character design, and the high level of detail in every encounter that players will have with the gods that rule the game’s world. They are only a small studio but it could well be said that the A44 team are at the forefront of design, leveraging tools such as Unity’s MetaHuman Creator to bring their characters to life through highly detailed animation.
Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn will be available later in 2022 when it releases on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Game Pass, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
Now, give that video a watch and take in the rich world of Flintlock. Let us know what you think.
