E3 2019 Recap

We were thrilled to reveal our Gears of War 5 body armor work for Microsoft & Xbox at E3 2019. Check out the highlights in this recap!

We had a blast at E3 connecting with old friends, colleagues, and finally getting the opportunity to display the end result of an exciting project. For the past few months, we’ve been working on Gears of War 5 body armor, and it was on display for Microsoft and Xbox during E3 2019.

The Inspiration

You have to start from somewhere, right? In addition to our previous work for Gears of War 4, we were fortunate to receive the game art as a model to work from in building these suits. Along the way, we came up with some fun additions, like the lights on the collar of the suit. Many thanks to Matt and Geoff for figuring this trick out.

A Big Moment Shared By Many

Everyone at the studio contributed to this project, and we are so grateful for their hard work in making this come to life. We got to see some familiar faces, like Average Jam as JD Fenix and meets wonderful new talent like and meet new talent like Gracie Lacey as Kait Diaz. Average Jam also modeled our Gears of War 4 armor. The opportunity to photograph the creator of Gears of War along with voice actors and models for the series was a wonderful moment. We’re so excited to have played a part in this moment!

We have many more exciting projects on the horizon. Stay tuned on our blog and social media for more updates!
