Past games like Rainbow Six and Face Breakers have incorporated a feature that allow you to import photos of yourself, friends or that guy on the bus who smells, slap them on characters and kick the crap out of them. It's pretty fantastic. But if you thought that was fun, then EA's most recent press release will floor you. Literally.
Players will be able to upload their photos to EA's server and create player models based off of them. Not just re-skin a template model, but actually generate face and head shape based upon the photos you upload.
Users will place "markers" onto the images so Photo Game Face can work out where to put features such as eyes, your chin and generate the basic shape of your face. With this system you aren’t just pasting a photo onto a pre-set piece of geometry. Photo Game face takes the photo and changes the geometry of the models to fit, this makes the face you create much more individual looking and accurate. If you can get a side view of yourself or whoever you are creating, as well as the front view, then your head model will be even more accurate. We've included some photos below in a gallery and you can check out the full EA press release here.
I'm personally excited to punch you all in the face, yet I can't help but wonder how man penis monsters I will have to slay online.
