Call of Duty Black Ops 4: Zombies - Alpha Omega (APD Control)

The APD Control basement in Black Ops 4's Alpha Omega level. This area connects to both above ground and the bunker, and is where the boss fight for the level starts.

I was responsible for lighting, reflection probe setup, tuning atmospheric and exposure settings, conveying the mood and story of the scene, and creating multiple lighting states for in game events. I communicated with concept, design, and environment teams to ensure the gameplay and narrative were being supported by lighting. I coordinated with the FX team to make sure exposure settings and atmospherics were supporting effects, and worked with tech art to help optimize the level while still reaching our visual target.
