Characters & Lore
This week we were surprised with an invite to MetaHuman Early Access, big thanks to Epic! We have begun creating gladiators and NPCs, some of which will interact with the player. The characters below were all created with MetaHuman and are currently in-editor and will be implemented to our player character and controller soon. All of our gladiators and NPCs will be made with MetaHuman. With each character comes lore, we want you to be immersed in each gladiator’s and character’s life story. Characters won’t be the only thing with lore though. We plan to have lore for everything including armor, equipment, horses and more.
Tools: We acquired a new tool called Infinity Weather. This will allow us to have dynamic weather over Rome and in battles. The current weather conditions that we plan to have are Rain, Heavy Wind and even the extremely rare event of Snow. Players will be paid extra Denarius when they battle in the Colosseum during harsh weather conditions or at night. All weather will range from none to mild to extreme.
Animation: We have begun assigning specific animations to attacks and finishers for the Samnite class and plan to begin creating sound effects for character animations within the next few weeks.
