Alliance x Empire centers on the large-scale battles between two regions and features a grand, full 3D world with beautiful graphics where players can hunt, grow and battle against each other. AxE was launched for Android & iOS devices in South Korea on September 14th, 2017.
WHAT WAS THE INTENTION BEHIND THE PROJECT?
“NEXON’s intention was to offer their fans something extraordinary and to provide them as well as the people on site something to anticipate the upcoming game and soundtrack. I think they suceeded very well :-)”
HOW WAS THE COLLABORATION WITH NEXON?
“Very good! After all, we have been working together with NEXON for some time now.”
WERE THERE ANY CHALLENGES TO MASTER?
“Finding and evaluating the perfect location beforehand was not easy. We worked together with a film production team on site in Prague that helped us to find the right location and organizing the video shooting.
As the shoot was planed to be open air without a roof we had to factor in a second scenario in case it would be raining. Of course it was awesome that we had such good weather and were able to execute plan A.
Then, until the end, one huge question remained: exactly on the spot where we wanted to shoot, a piece of art was to be put up shortly before. So we had to get information on what kind of artwork it would be in order to plan better.
Unfortunately, the responsible municipal authorities couldn’t tell us anything about the sculpture. It was installed just one the day before our video shooting – and only then we could make a detailed plan how to exactly do the shoot. When we saw the artwork we were really relieved: In my opinion the sculpture even enriched our setting! We also had to get the permissions to film for other locations you can see in the trailer video. We had to make a lot of phone calls beforehand with the local authorities :-)”
HOW DO YOU LIKE THE MUSIC? WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT IT?
“The music is really beautifully written and arranged in a fantastic colorful way. The battle tracks are massive and epic soaking you right into the right atmosphere. NEXON has a really great audio team!”
HOW DID THE PEOPLE REACT TO THE LIVE OUTDOOR CONCERT?
“The outdoor concert was really well received: Several people asked us beforehand when the concert would begin and came back to the square to see the musicians. Very many people filmed the concert with their smartphones and you could see people dancing in the background. After a short time somebody created an Instagram hashtag and probably that’s why even more people came to see the live performance later on.”
WHAT WORKED ESPECIALLY WELL?
“In the end everything worked out great: As I said we were especially happy about the good weather especially because rain was predicted for the day beforehand. Good to know that the weather forecasts are that imprecise even nowadays – so there is always hope ;-)”
ARE THERE ANY ANECDOTES OR FUN FACTS TO REPORT?
“A woman asked me beforehand when the concert for the dedication of the stature would take place as the stature was installed on the same day before our concert. She thought these two events were connected. This was kind of funny as it seemed to make complete sense, but in reality we had nothing to do with the statue.”
ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH THE RESULT?
“I think the results are beautiful. The NEXON video team did a really great job. When I see those musicians in the trailer video sitting there looking cool with their suits and sunglasses and at the same time playing epic battle music, to me it looks like an orchestra constituted of secret service agents – an orchestra full of “James Bonds”.
