Session Name:

The Color of Enlightenment: Defining Shangri-La Within Far Cry 4


Ubisoft Toronto was approached by Ubisoft Montreal to collaborate on its upcoming Far Cry 4 project. The mission -- bring the mythological world of Shangri-La to life within the game in a way that feels unique and memorable, yet consistent with the world of Far Cry. This visually stimulating presentation, filled with vibrant and inspirational imagery from the research and conception phase to the final compelling content, will focus on the inner workings of the development process, specifically in regards to defining the look of a unique world within a world, and specifically on how color can be used to define the visual rules for the world and create an emotionally impactful experience that complements the core experience of the game.
