Assassins Creed Unity hit the floor at E3 and immediately set the tone for revolution. The title is being hailed as “too much” for current consoles to handle and boasts a multi-player co-op experience set during the French Revolution. Vive la revolution! The trailer looks impeccable and the potential to work with up to 4 friends in a co-op mode have this blogger chomping at the bit! Be sure to learn more about how ZBrush is being used in industry by vising our ZBrush Stories pages.

By now, it’s clear the quality of games at E3 2014 has left us a little more than breathless. It’s getting harder and harder to get any work done around here!

The team at Digital Domain nailed this trailer for Rise Of The Tomb Raider and left the crowd in awe at the Microsoft Press Conference. Microsoft is aiming for a 2015 arrival on the Xbox One and we can hardly wait to play it. The game is being produced by the Square Enix subsidiary Crystal Dynamics. For now, we’re just satisfied to take in the lush details and daydream away an afternoon in anticipation of the next chapter in the Laura Croft saga. Find out more more about Digital Domain and their other projects here.

With the excitement of the Electronic Entertainment Expo aka, E3 in the air, we’ve decided to take a closer look at the business of video games. With the dawn of the latest hardware comes increased graphics capability. What does that mean? More details! Where there’s more details, you’re sure to find more ZBrush. We’ll highlight how ZBrush is playing a role in bringing your favorite next gen titles to life, while at the same time giving you the “lowdown” on the hottest new games being unveiled at the conference. Mirror’s Edge carried with it a serious fan following. It’s no wonder that EA Digital Illusions CE (DICE) is bringing the franchise back for a second helping. Be sure to check out this behind the scenes, “making of” with the talented men and women at DICE for a glimpse of ZBrush in action. Here’s to the team that keeps us living on the edge!

Handling the finer details looks to be ZBSee member pharrisgenois’ strong suit. It’s early in pharrisgenois’ ZBSee posting career but by the look of it, we can expect to see some cool work going forward. There’s a couple of breakdowns on generating everything from an armoured chest plate to a tattered shawl. You can generate your own armour by utilizing features like masking, extractions, Dynamesh and ZRemesher. Look inside ZClassroom to find video tutorials guaranteed to leave you inspired.

The studio that had you “tap-tap-tapping” away in the seminal hit “Rock Band”, recently secured crowd funding for a reboot of the Amplitude franchise. Harmonix knocked this one outta the stratosphere and secured enough “greenbacks” to keep fans of the PlayStation 2 hit driving forward in pure rhythmic style! Check out the Kickstarter campaign to see some behind the scenes action featuring your favorite digital clay, ZBrush. We can’t wait to get “amped” all over again!

Orc Of A Good Time

Tiago Rios aka tiagori on the ZBrushCentral forum, gets us “green” with envy in this latest ZBSee post. Incorporating some dynamic brush work with the slash brush, trim dynamic and alphas really helped this Orc’s armour come to life. Best of all, tiagori used Polypainting, UV Master, Decimation Master and rendered the whole thing inside ZBrush. Check out his mini workflow breakdown inside his user gallery.

The Familiar Face In The Crowd

This guy needs no introduction. Morgan Freeman has played the role of some memorable characters throughout his career. ZBSee member mridulson does him justice with this “likeness” sculpt. The whole thing started life as a simple sphere and took final form using a combination of sculpting and re-topology tools like ZRemesher guides, ZRemesher, Projection and Alphas inside ZBrush. Be sure to stop by his user gallery to see an in-depth breakdown of his process, including texturing and rendering for his final image. Learn more about mridulson here.
