Axis to create CG-animated episodes for Halo 4 Spartan Ops: Season One

The Halo 4 Spartan Ops: Season One has been available since launch. It’s a new way of episodic storytelling featuring 10 weeks worth of DLC content. Fans will be getting 5 new missions and one CGI-animated episode each week.

The team producing the animated episodes is Axis, the guys behind the Dead Island trailer. The Spartan Ops series continues after Halo 4, following the UNSC Infinity. These episodes serve as background story for the gameplay missions.

The episodes combined will have a running time of 45 minutes and will feature 30 characters, 23 sets and 1200-plus shots. To create the realistic-looking facial animation, Axis teamed up with Giant studios and Cubic Motion to help develop a unique facial motion capture solution.

I’m looking forward to this, since 343 Industries really impressed me with the improved graphics and pre-rendered cutscenes in Halo 4. That first moment when I saw the hyper-realistic Dr. Halsey had my jaws dropped.
