Behind the Scenes

This was a challenging project for us since not only did we remaster it as an HD version, but we fully committed to taking it to 4K resolution. In order to make the pre-rendered movies 4K, we had to utilize 'deep learning' our proprietary technology in order to up rez. We also strived to maintain 60 frames per second at 4K resolution.

We took special care with the textures to improve their quality. Please take a look at the hair carefully to get a sense of this. Not only did we make Leane better, but check out Vashyron's silky locks as well. We also all really enjoyed being able to see the expressions on the characters as they are traversing the environment.

 While working on the remaster, it really brought back how atmospheric the original game was, so we really made an effort to retain that by showing how the passage of time affects the backgrounds, fog effects, light sources and shadows, and reworking the camera angles. The stellar quality of the original movies really shine through with the improved resolutions.

 We also fixed made sure to fix some old bugs and improved the load times to make for a better game playing experience. It's a remaster that still has over 100 hours of game play with a dynamic engaging battle system that we hope you'll enjoy. We've enjoyed remastering a game that allows players to have their own play style, customization and ingenuity to get through the game.
