Thanks to Tides of War, Battlefield V’s live service which introduces new gameplay modes and maps through post-launch updates, the award-winning shooter continues to evolve months after release. During this not-to-be-missed event, discover how the team takes a level from concept to completion and hear about the techniques used in crafting Mercury as the they discuss the photogrammetry and visual effects workflows behind the game’s latest map.


Seating is limited, so be sure to RSVP and arrive in good time to secure a place in line. Attendee check-in will open at approximately 6:30 PM; a valid Eventbrite RSVP will be required to get an event wristband. If you are unable to make it to campus, you can watch the event live on Gnomon's Twitch channel.



Gnomon School of VFX's full-time programs and 10-week individual courses are designed to develop well-rounded artists that are skilled in the diverse disciplines within 3D production. For those outside of the US, virtual classroom-style online courses are also available.
