It was great sitting down with you, Yezzan! Hope you all like Forsaken, the corrupted dark side of Sovereign! :)

Preeti and I had this bit of hope that we'd get through the whole thing without the sovereign connection being brought up and then itd be a "OMG WTF" moment when we changed to the Variant! haha. but either way it was also so exciting (evident by preeti's "YAAAAHH!") that you got it immediately! this was awesome to walk through with you!

You hit the nail on the head. Thought along the same lines. Was also a little shocked that the devs were hoping that people wouldn’t automatically think of Sovereign and Reaver. The Gem and the sharp Reaver lines, it was about as subtle as a sledgehammer.

Nope, actually we're really glad the connection to Sovereign is so evident. These skins were developed very intentionally to be connected to one another. Our "noooo" reaction was that we thought we'd have more fun teasing it to Yezzan and then revealing it after a few minutes but he guessed it immediately.

Okay I can see more along the lines of how you as a developer was thinking. The skin set might not be for me, but I really do enjoy and appreciate the interviews the development team gives. Hearing your thoughts and how the process went is cool and I find it interesting.

How long does a skin line (with animations and vfx) usually take? In the video you had mentioned ‘forsaken’ started the same week as quarantine. I really enjoy a lot of the skins (elderflame IMO is the most unique and B.A. cosmetics in any game I have played) but sometimes I don’t realize how much work and time goes into making them.

I'm so glad you enjoy hearing about the dev process. Sean and I love talking to players and influencers about the dev process because we personally love more behind-the-scenes stuff for games, shows, movies, etc. we love.

It takes anywhere from a year to a year-and-a-half from the time we start making the skin til it's done. If you count time spent coming up with the concept sketches, add a few more months to that.

Elderflame took longer because it was a huge challenge and something we'd never done before.

Not to mention the default gunshot sounds too.

It has custom audio, not default.

Really? The custom moving/reload sounds are definitely noticeable, but the gunshots themselves sound practically the same as the default (unlike collections like the Reaver and Prime that have a very noticeably different gunshot sound).

It’s just harder to hear in the recording (we recorded the video and audio on our end). It’s there. :)

We used the same instruments we used in Sovereign but in a Minor key so it sounds more sorrowful.
