Developing the Giant Snake Boss in Assassin’s Creed Origins:

>>> How to take advantage of procedural animation without letting it fully drive the experience, thus allowing to maintain a high degree of control in the hands of the development team?
>>> How to create unpredictable physics-based movement of the snake without losing the ability to author high-quality handcrafted animations for its attacks?
>>> Show an approach that could be adopted by other teams facing similar challenges in the development context of AAA games.
>>> A context where it’s important to innovate but at the same time to maintain a manageable level of risk.

*Събитието ще се проведе на английски език!
