Forza Horizon 4 to Come Alive at Interactive Futures
Hot on the heels of this week’s global release of Forza Horizon 4, we’re delighted too announce that Playground Games will be presenting two in-depth sessions at Interactive Futures on Friday 1 February. The Forza Horizon series is one of Leamington Spa’s best known exports, and the latest edition was released this week on Tuesday 2 October 2018.
Playground Games’ Senior Technical Artist, Yibo Liu, will present a session titled, Dream Machines: Making the Most Desirable Cars for Forza Horizon 4. With over 450 licensed cars featuring in the game it takes a lot of enthusiasm and effort to ensure the quality of the meticulously crafted dream-machines. Yibo has worked on the Forza Horizon series since Forza Horizon 2 and during the session Yibo will uncover the many facets of what it was like to make the high-quality vehicles for a AAA racing game.
Joining Yibo on the speaker programme is Jake Woodruff, an Environment Artist for Playground Games, who has also worked on the hit game series since Forza Horizon 2. This session of Foliage Breakdown on Forza Horizon 4 will see Jake providing an extensive look at the creation of foliage in Forza Horizon 4. With his experience of working as part of the art team at one of the UK’s most pre-eminent AAA developers, Jake will also be offering practical portfolio advice on how to present your work at its best.
Gavin Raeburn, Studio Director at Playground Games, added, “Following the successful launch of Forza Horizon 4, we’re pleased that Yibo and Jake from the Horizon team will be sharing their experiences and expertise at Interactive Futures.”
“Leamington Spa is Playground Games’ home and we’re proud that it’s regarded as one of the largest and most successful games clusters in the UK. It’s therefore fantastic to see the incredible talent we have in the area celebrated at Interactive Futures.”
