Star Wars Battlefront – DICE Talks About Photogrammetry
DICE has shared details on how using “Photogrammetry” has enabled the team to make Star Wars Battlefront look as visually authentic as possible.
DICE explains that they visited the actual film locations from the original trilogy capturing giant redwood trees and the actual stormtrooper helmets. The team managed to get hold of many of the original props, taking images of X-Wings, Lightsabers, Droids and even Boba Fett’s armor. Using cameras they took pictures from evry angle and in different lighting conditions.
The team noted that Darth Vader’s helmet was tricky because it’s “black and shiny”. DICE visited locations around the world including Finse, Norway and Death Valley, California for research on the various levels of Star Wars Battlefront, making sure levels such as Hoth, Endor and others look as they did in the movies.
Preorders for Star Wars Battlefront are available for both the Standard and Deluxe versions. As producer Jesper Nielsen stated, gameplay will come in due time, so it would be safe to assume that the development diaries will lead up to that.
Star Wars Battlefront will be released on November 17 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. We will bring you any new information as soon as it becomes available.
