Animation studio Axis Studios has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the game industry, creating movies and animated trailers. One of his latest works includes the Atriox movie that opens the Halo Infinite campaign, and today the studio shows off more of the work that went into creating the opening scene.
The cutscene pits Master Chief against each other in an impossible battle against Atriox, amid a chaotic battleground. New concept art, released by Axis, shows how some of the film’s most pivotal moments were originally conceived, as well as a storyboard that depicts the entire scene in a single image.
The storyboard shows Axis’ use of color in the scene, with each moment showing an interplay of red and blue that can be picked up in the final scene.
In addition to the cinematic campaign, Axis also collaborated with 343 Industries on the cinematic intro to Infinite’s multiplayer season 1, which introduced Spartan Commander Laurette Aryna.
Halo Infinite multiplayer is now free to play on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, while the campaign is included with Xbox Game Pass, or can be purchased separately for $60.
