As announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was one of the main protagonists of the 2019 edition of Lucca Comics & Games, which took place between October 30 and November 3. In the evocative setting of the Baluardo San Regolo, the fans of the series put themselves to the test with the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare both on PlayStation 4 and on PC, to then engage in numerous themed experiential activities - such as the thrilling military journey in the underground with airsoft equipment - then meeting the faces of the community over the course of five days of union and fun.
The appointment opened with a panel based on the concept of the relationship between fiction and reality in which the game developer Bernardo Antoniazzi and the former Italian army raid Claudio Spinelli have witnessed their experience. "A lot has happened in the first Call of Duty Modern Warfare trilogy: nuclear warhead launches, Russia invading the United States, the Russian president who is first seized and then rescued by our rangers. This time we wanted to tell a more realistic and contemporary story in settings, action and details, but always with the goal of entertaining "Antoniazzi explained.
Antoniazzi's work - Infinity Ward's Principal Technical Artist - was fundamental precisely to give the maximum realism to every detail of the game, especially those concerning the faces and physical details of the characters: "To capture and reproduce the performances of the actors I have developed the" Sala dei Fotogrammi ". These are 60 synchronized cameras that capture the image from every angle and create an 3D model of the person. Then there are other photogrammetry systems to generate models of medium-sized objects. Therefore we look for the equipment physically, we add stains and signs of wear, then we capture the image. Once captured characters and equipment you work on every detail and insert them into the game. It was a long and complex job, but we are proud to have brought a great product to the screens of gamers around the world " The developer concluded.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available from the 25 October.
