Animated Fixtures – ESO

Sound Design

ESO Animated Fixtures SFX from Bill Mueller on Vimeo.

It’s important in an MMO to have the player feel like the world around them is alive. Animated fixtures and the sounds they play are a huge part of that. Paying attention to how each on moves, as well as how each one will be implemented in the game was an important aspect to designing the sound for these. A lot of times, you don’t generally want to call attention to them ( like the bellow for example) They are just something that happen in the world, so a nice, subtle sound is what I went with.
