Ask a (probably soon an ex-)Treyarch employee anything.
Saw the yesterdays thread and it seems like I'm not the only rat in the house. Will provide proof about me working for Treyarch.
Yes we are working on World At War 2, ask me anything about it.
I won't be revealing what or where for them I work as.
pic related, what got leaked yesterday.
How much of the assets from the previous iteration of the game are reused?
Do the different companies share these assets?
Like how MW3 removed a lot of the customization options that BLOPS had, it seems like the different companies totally do not share their info.
Most people here try their best when it comes to working. But around the fourth and fifth development month we get swamped and most of the team gets shuffled around, most of the code monkeys are changed often. For the decently employed people it's ok, we are very aware of what we produce and work hard. You do realise it's all about the profits these days, all the voice actors and mocap tech we have cost more than my house and car combined.
Some voice actors alone get paid more than my car is worth. Whilst the budjet is high, it's also so that the profits must be. We must be able to justify all our spending.
We aren't the only studio working on CoD's, remember that.
Will the mulitplayer be more needlessly complicated like the recent games? Or will it be more like WaW with better graphics?
pls say 3 5 7 killstreaks are back
I'm going to get on them autismbucks and become a NEET.
A lot, we cycle concept art and ideas all the time. While we work on the same brand, we barely communicate with the other team working on CoD games. Artists are pissy and overprotective of their work, even though they no longer own the rights to it (the company does since it's done during worktime). As for the models, mostly the higher poly working models and textures are used and sometimes modified for further use. While a lot of concept gets thrown straight into the bin a surprising amount comes up used in later titles.
CoD is the ultimate gravytrain.
got some Concept Art.
Have you guys been working on WaW2 since Black Ops 2 came out? Or did you not start until Ghosts or AW was released?
Keep in mind that it's always Infinity Ward that puts out the new "engine"
Anything following an IW game is just going to be that game with some amount of new content. AW did the most change by having the ammo counter on the gun instead of a UI
How is the competition between studios? I can imagine you are trying to outdo one another.
Which COD has been the one that is considered the best by your studio? If it's a COD made by Treyarch, which one that isn't made by the company?
would WaW2 be a prequal to the original world at war? Because in black ops the guy you play as in World at War is shown dying to nova gas on that boat or are you playing as completely different characters?
Couldnt you have done better than working for such a gigantic mess of greed and shit as Actiblizz?
I mean I'm sure you didnt plan your life around creating shitty shooters the rest of your life but why choose this shithole?
Usually when do you get your first "you are out of time" notice after development has started on a game?
Because of your Autism.
More of a continuation to World At War 1, I haven't seen the storyboards. As far as I have understood it has something to do with Mengele, invasion of Poland and the final chapter of World At War.
I believe Reznov will be again somehow connected to the plot.
The work cycle is 3 years.
What is the storyline.
I would give you all of my money if it was an alternate history story where at the end of WW2 the allies actually go through with Operation unthinkable.
>MFW killing Tories and yanks as a soviet Infantry man who has already seen his fair share of war
Well shit treyfag, thanks
I might actually keep an eye out.
I tend to prefer Treyarch's games because they seem to be more unique
can you put a shoutout to 4chan as an easter egg, like the DICE anons did in BF3
I am not a communist well not exactly.....lets not get into politics I just have a hard on for the romanticism of soviet nationalism

>All the people that make the game gets to be treated like objects
>The unimportant shit is where all the money goes
I mean we all knew about this, but it hurts to read everytime.
I'm not sure you're using that word like you think you are m8, though perhaps you could clarify what you think Tories are?
I don't know if you worked on Black Ops OP, but I just wanted to say I did genuinely enjoy that game. I had some really great times with my friends because of it and if by chance you did I thought you'd like to know your work was appreciated.
I'd like to more point it out as a continuous improvement case inside an organization. That's bullshit terms for Yes.
Because I am too lazy to do actual work.
Probably not, most of the people working on the port seem pretty
A twist on Mengele, going further in on the whole german sickness. muh 600 gorillion etc... Playing on the whole SJW crowdsurfing.
No problem :^)
day 1 full unlock DLC packs, full class of weapons, all shotties and all SMG's
they practically want it to flunk on the PC
blizz activision is in full control and everything pretty much happens as they project it to
theyre gonna be fucked when the trend is over and they have nothing else to sell, but i dont see this trend dying so they get to live on and fuck shit up
>day 1 full unlock DLC packs, full class of weapons, all shotties and all SMG's
ah well thanks for answering
I'm just looking for the fun as hell offline/local multiplayer we had
also 4 player local zombies would be great
1.Propaganda is just telling an Idea, propaganda does not mean its instantly a lie
Yes the soviet union was shit, thats the problem with socialism.you are not possessed to mix it with government.
Anyway you know about operation unthinkable?
i'll send you a link. Pretty crazy shit. I've always thought a game based off of it would be insane just like if the U.S. almost invaded mainland japan
A Tory is a member or supporter of the Conservative party; it's a very old term. Conmpare an constrast with a Whig, a member or supporter of the Liberal party. I didn't know Germans used Tory as slang for a Brit, that's interesting. We did have a Conservativ-led government during WW2, maybe it's got something to do with that.
But yeah, don't use the term Tory when you mean Brit, some people (myself included) would take that as a serious insult after what those cunts did in the 80s.
Most concept art that isn't presented to public isn't too good, it's 30 minutes with a pen and a marker on most pieces.Concept art is an idea not a poster. Artists give a direction on the art, rather than the whole idea, a game usually has hundreds of concept art pieces that are never presented outside of the department.
The more you learn.
The art that is presented to the consumer is very polished obviously.
We really do not care, the marketing and leading team do. Someone at my step doesn't really give a flying fuck.
It's like that everywhere, actually it's the best to be at a big developer in an ok position. Just never become a coder unless you're real good at it.
So disregarding the things that have happened recently and just on your own opinion. Do you consider that if news sources are going to consider themselves journalist, they should follow the same level of ethics?
>Germans used Tory as slang for a Brit
thats not a true thing
most germans couldnt pronounce the word "tory"
we dont have soft "r" sound
i actually cant think of a slang term for brits. besides something like "tea drinker" (but in german)
Wow, they're going with niggers instead of zombies this time.
From someone who lived in the USSR I can honestly say it really wasn't THAT bad.
A lot of western shit was banned but you could still find a way around it if you weren't a retard
It was a very interesting time.
UT4 is in development and now WaW2 is leaked. I can't contain my hype.
Are they going to use the same engine?
And get the photo EXIF taken or some fag with too much time identifying me from the shape of the shadow of my thumb. No thank you.
Everyone asking about the story, I don't have full storyboard access, I'm a drone not a brain.
I got a friend on marketing that shared the stuff on DLC, I work on 3D art for levelprops.
I see. I have heard this from many people who used to live in the SU
<One more time?
Probably based on the animal/human subject testing nazis did during ww2 but with a alternative history tweest so they get creative freedom. Nazis did some cray shit with all their disabled and unwanted animals etc so we might get some cool hybrids. Like someone melted into an electrified wheelchair that speeds round turning on barriers/temporarily closing doors and disabling perk machines/generally fucking with the players. I just wantwant more passive mobs in zombies.
Id jizz if they tied It into the waw zombies (the guy from ascension being Featured in some way)
Mecca geobels with cane shotgun when?
Was that trsiler syncing perfectklly with Evrlerybody Wants to Rule The World a massive coincidence or intentional? What wasvthe reaction from higher ups? If this is tge wrong dev then whatever im tired and its cod i dunno
They went to war with the North of the country. Mines were closed, trade unions got castrated, welfare was torn up, and they bought in a poll tax that fucked the poor at a time where they were already hurting.
Modern Tories are nearly as bad, just stealthier.
>I barely put an hour in Zombies in WAW
I don't know man I'm pretty sure when I'm 44 I'm still gonna be yelling at the retarded kids my age right now about how the playstation 5 is way better than the samsung playmonster or whatever the fuck is even sort of going to happen then.
>CoD is going back to WW2
>there will never be a proper WW1 FPS
>there will never be a military FPS set in the age of muskets
>There will never be Call of Duty: Ancient Warfare
Come on, Treyarch, IW or Sledgehammer need to make a game set at least a few hundred years ago.
It would be like Dark Messiah but prettier and with less shit multiplayer.
Labour got raped so hard by Thatcher that they had to rebrand entirely, so she's indirectly responsible for Blair as well. People talk about my generation being 'Thatcher's children', because she really broke up our society and shifted the focus from community to individuality and capitalism.
Modern Tories are this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YBumQHPAeU
It's meant as a parody but it's actually fairly accurate. You sound like a solid dude politically, I think you'd get on well with me and my friends.
