A game trailer for launching Splitgate Season 0 on Xbox Series X, Playstation 5 and PC with 1047 Games.
One of the key decisions I made with the Splitgate team, was to try to keep the trailer feeling as true to the gameplay experience as possible. We wanted people who play the game to see the trailer and think - "this is exactly what the game is, and this is exactly how it played out in my games"! For a newer audience, the sick clips and fast editing, as well as the portal mechanic being a fantastic hook was more than enough to generate the initial interest.
To do this, we gave the trailer a 'frag movie' style edit and vibe - a throwback to the videos you'd make back in the days to show off your skills in-game, as well as to capture that 'clip it!' moment you might get playing the game and capturing the moment you felt was cool and worth sharing!
