Ok, ideas for exciting videos to demo multiplayer. Watch this new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – Multiplayer Overview video. It carry's an exciting pace, sounds and looks great. And its accompanying multiplayer trailer video.
I am interested in the space zero-g aspect of the SP new call-of-duty-infinite-warfare - space EVA but never multiplayer. But those videos make me feel like I want to try it. I won't... but you get my meaning. They are well made, and really draw you into what it is to play multi player in COD's new game.
Finding this zen balance for I:B will also enable some great videos to grab peoples attention and draw them in. On your scale and level. I know this is a rather broad stroke set of ideas, so finding the right balance and pace for I:B videos and just taking some cues from the above COD vids, should prove popular near launch time.
Can we assume that I:B will have periods of less activity, like when a match first starts and players take up positions and get ready for defence or the hunt. And then periods of combat action. If these could all be summed up in videos like the above (nearer launch), then they will be well received.
If possible, bring in outside talent with good track record to create/edit the trailer and multiplayer overview...if budget allowed at the time. Find the right voice talent of narrate these videos.
Maybe even release a small series of videos to highlight the various multiplayer aspects of I:B - The defence action - The hunt and destroy action - The cargo/resource runs and the actions around attacking and defending convoys.
And other modes and roles, inc free fly exploration - hinting at what this can do for your knowledge of the system in matches etc....and what might be discovered, like new veins of rich resources hidden away which could help your side in the resource war. *just an idea.
