That valkyrie trailer, Lore wise you know how big the ships are, but seeing it is a whole different thing.
And who drops a titan in the middle of a fight? Silly buggers.
another EFRON ex director, Yes they are plentyfull around these parts

That's recorded gameplay. Not a trailer.

I'd posted it in vids this morning too. Had someone elsewhere calling BS on the gameplay bit as the head movements were just a bit too smooth.
Regardless.

This. So much this.

Well the key part is that it's all gameplay within the engine rather than a pre-rendered sequence (even if it is an orchestrated one). Whether they automated a run through with camera look to get the angles they needed for the purpose of the clip doesn't really matter.

I doubt it was someone actually sitting there playing it, most of these gameplay trailers showing vertical slices of in-engine gameplay are on-rails sort of things, to make sure the 'player' is looking at the right place at the right time. There's a few exceptions, but they're always heavily scripted and rehearsed (Team Super Friends from The Division, I am looking at you) in either case. The important thing however, is that regardless of they did it, it looks awesome :P

I agree, the doubt comes from the claim they made during fanfest. Where they claimed they took multiple takes and when the guy playing was asked to repeat a sequence, claimed he couldn't.
But as you say, looks like it's on rails to me too, like every other trailer.
