Watch until the end to find out what happened in the foley room.
The 343 Industries development team has shared a video in which community questions regarding its upcoming first-person shooter Halo Infinite were answered.
In the 31-minute video (embedded below), community manager John Junyszek is joined by lead audio technical designer Chase Thompson, music supervisor Joel Yarger, and lead sound designer Kyle Fraser as they answer questions using the #Ask343 Twitter hashtag.
Topics include the emotional journey facilitated by the game’s score, weapon-based sound design, challenges that arise from creating alien vocalisations, how different types of footsteps can be distinguished from each other, how wildlife sounds are incorporated into the game, Jeff Steitzer’s voice-over work, and the “minimal” use of music throughout multiplayer.
Halo Infinite is developed by 343 Industries and published by Xbox Game Studios. The game is currently scheduled for release this autumn for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows.
