Battlefield 3 assets – storyboards, animation cells, sketches, screens

As you can see from the title there I’ve got quite a bit of BF3 stuff to share with you, so read on to check it out. Along with the picture they included descriptions too.

From storyboarding on a grand scale, to mapping out animations frame by frame, or devoting minute attention to lighting effects or the realistic sound of a tank, myriad elements of art and science – big and small – have come together to create the realistic military shooter experience in Battlefield 3, the long-awaited successor to the internationally acclaimed Battlefield 2.

A view of what audio engineer Stefan Strandberg’s desktop might look like when working with audio in Frostbite 2. The large schematic shows a view of how a model’s (in this case, one of our tanks) sound is processed based on everything that can happen at any one time in the game.

Frostbite 2 lets us use features such as dynamic radiosity, dynamic shadows, and deferred lighting on a big scale. Included are some examples of an environment where you can see just the lighting information (1), the actual light probes that control how light affects dynamic objects (2 – one of these probes contain more lighting information than an entire level from BFBC2), and the finished environment they way a player would see it (3).

As you know, destruction will be a major part of Battlefield 3, both on a micro and and large scale. You saw the earthquake, and the hotel getting RPG’d at the end of Patrick Bach’s playthrough. One of the new destruction features we bring to Battlefield 3 are crumbling facades, as you can see in this 4-pic sequence from one of our levels (this destruction will be a feature both in SP and MP).

 

Storyboard_01-03

Our concept artist Mattias Hägglund painted storyboards for our missions to set the emotional target for Battlefield 3. These sketches show three soldiers arriving at a scene, one of them being shot and dragged to safety by his buddy. The soldier in pic two is not happy about being shot.

This alley showcases our Frostbite 2 lighting nicely (and is the same alley portrayed in screens “Lighting 1-3”).

 

Novac

This is the hotel where the sniper in our demo used to camp, and just one example of destruction in Battlefield 3.

The start of the big street-level firefight you saw.

Showcasing our Frostbite 2 lighting, and the physicality of kicking doors in.

 

StagingArea

Out of the transport and on the way to the briefing. The relatively peaceful opening of the mission later erupts into the firefight in the parking lot. This mission arch is part of our design philosophy not to build a game that feels like a never-ending guitar solo (as executive producer Patrick Bach puts it).
