Post news Report article RSS Feed Prelude To Oblivion

When you see this, you will realize exactly how far we have come and where we are going with this project.

Posted by Lord_Setesh on Jun 13th, 2013

You guys are asking yourself right now, what is Prelude? Prelude is a CG mini series of sorts following a Cerberus invasion of a Alliance military base. Whats there? Why are they attacking? What are the implications? Well I'm not going to answer that, but rather let the movie play out. This miniseries will be done by a friend of mine who is really skilled in what he does. I don't have to sit here and talk him up his work speaks for itself. Right now this is the rough intro meant to introduce you guys to just a small taste of whats to come, rest assured though it will be plenty worth it. This one is a lead up to our Defiance release in the coming months. Enjoy. (Play in 1080i)

P.S - These are all DOTR models with some armor buff ups so keep a look out for your favorite ships.

Like what you see? Really want to see more or just follow a talented artist. A link to his site will be included below for you folks to enjoy.

So that is made using resources from the DotR mod? That is awesome. You should see about making something like that as your mod introduction video at the start of SoaSE Rebellion.

No it doesn't. It says "right now this is the rough intro meant to introduce you guys to just a small taste of whats to come."
It says it is an introduction to the miniseries, a teaser, not the mod.

It says for the series not the game, although they would be fools not to use something likes this as their intro

Yea I know, they just used the resources (i.e ships) from the DotR mod in a video making program of sorts. I was just saying would be cool for the SoaSE introduction video.

If BioWare had more people like him, we couldve had an epic space battle over Earth in ME3. Nice work! Can not be said enough.

This is like my dream coming through, I've been waiting for somebody to make something this epic but it makes me sad that reapers are not included! :( It would be so freakin epic to see a fight with reapers like that. I'll keep an eye out for this miniseries for sure, keep up the awesome work guys!

Thanks for the kind words, glad you all liked it! To be a little more clear, this is one scene that will be used in the opening cinematic when you boot up the mod in Sins. Be sure to follow @FXRMotion, I'll be posting a lot of progress there. Check out the super detailed HD N7 unit and Mateu Station, the central focus of the opening cinematic!

Pre-visualization for the rest of the cinematic has begun, a few shots are now nailed in the final edit. Hoping the final edit will be finished just in time for the beta release.

Will you be making another for the full release? Seeing as the beta, Defiance, will focus solely on Cerberus vs Alliance, and the main game will obviously feature Reapers.

Hey. I don't know if this has been previously answered or I'm just being dumb but:
Is it possible that the Citadel Races will have more of the other ships? I see Alliance Dreads/Carriers/Cruisers, the Destiny Ascension, and 1 or two Turian classes. But what about the rest of the Asari fleet (of which there is a multitude seen in the end of ME3) the Salarians, the Quarians (who although they were not Citadel did help some towards the end) and several others.

Granted I've only been cursorily following this mod, and it is only in alpha/beta. Just my two cents. Those are the only things that jumped out at me because otherwise this has to be the best damn mod I've seen in a while (that approaches completion) Great work guys!
