In launching mobile game Evony: The King’s Return, Method handled VFX to show leaders from various historical eras converging as allies in an unlikely battle – including George Washington (Aaron Eckhart), King Arthur (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and Empress Wu Zetian (Fan Bingbing). The spot depicts each character’s unique region and vast forces as they prepare for battle, culminating with all three coming together to storm an enemy castle. Method artists created a range of CG effects including massive armies, weaponry, and horses; atmospheric elements including fireballs, fog, and smoke; and matte paintings for various environments.
