GamersFirst has started a long-term 3D animation partnership with online vendor Mixamo. GamersFirst’s newly formed studio Reloaded Productions will have access to Mixamo’s complete catalog of animations for use both in APB and upcoming projects. Mixamo’s catalog consists of hundreds of “canned” 3D avatar animations that a developer can then tweak and customize to fit a particular game’s needs. GamesFirst plans to launch the revamped All Points Bulletin in the first half of 2011.
“We are excited to have forged this critical partnership with Mixamo,” said Rahul Sandil, Senior Vice President of Global Markets and Public Relations for GamersFirst, in a press statement. “With Reloaded Productions, Inc. and upcoming projects under way, it is important for us to leverage a leading-edge 3D animation technology that allows our team to do more with what we have. Mixamo is able to provide the service we need without compromising quality and work with us as a true partner.”
“Mixamo always partners with leaders in the video game industry, so this is an exciting time to be working closely with GamersFirst, the leader in Free-to-Play MMO games in the Western hemisphere,” said Mixamo co-founder and CEO Nazim Kareemi, in a press statement. “Mixamo’s online feature set fits perfectly into the new internal development pipeline at GamersFirst, allowing their production teams to accomplish much more creatively and stylistically.”
