F.E.A.R. 3 — Gun Audio Behind the Scenes Trailer
You might not ever think about it, but the sound of firearms is crucially important to a lot of games. In a first-person shooter like F.E.A.R. 3, there’s a gun firing almost constantly. As a developer, if your user is hearing certain sounds for the vast majority of his or her time with the game,, it behooves you to ensure that those sounds are of the highest possible quality.
Enter the F.E.A.R. 3 audio team. After explaining the qualities of the vast number of different microphones they have on hand, a weapon expert fires a variety of different guns for the benefit of the expectant mics, including one hilariously phallic magnum.
