Have you ever picked up a class in an MMO, only to find yourself disenchanted by the lackluster or wonky way that the class would use its weapon? Combat animations can add so much to a game if done right, but be a major detractor if it’s handled sloppily.
Gloria Victis wants to bring out the best for its community, which is why the team has enlisted the help of Jakub Kisiel to help with some of the weapon animation overhauls. Kisiel’s portfolio includes Gears of War and The Witcher 3, and one of his first tasks for Gloria Victis is to make longsword combat look real and visceral.
Did he succeed? Check out the longsword animations teaser after the break and let us know what you think.
