Building Sci-Fi Armor with the LawBreakers Trailer

Have you ever wondered just which parts of live action trailers were real and which were CG? In the first trailer for LawBreakers, the new project from Gears of War mastermind Cliff Bleszinski, we get a brief glimpse of three futuristic law enforcement officials sporting some pretty awesome looking armor. While it might initially appear like this armor is some top-notch animation, it was in fact created in much the same way as many cosplay costumes.

The folks over at YouTube channel Tested were actually behind the three costumes, and the video above does a pretty good job of explaining the process behind their construction. So if you’re interested in what goes into making video game trailer or you want to scope some tips for your next Comic Con outfit, give it a watch!
