CSR2 Ken Block: Electrikhana
Legendary racing driver Ken Block’s partnership with the world’s most popular drag racing game CSR 2 continued in 2022, with the announcement of the limited time Electrikhana event. For the first time, over 130 million CSR 2 players were given the opportunity to experience the supercharged power of Ken Block’s own Audi S1 E-Tron Quattro, otherwise known as the ‘Hoonitron’- and Fluid were delighted to help Zynga spread the word with a stunning announcement trailer.
We were requested to help with the CGI, VFX and audio for the debut of Audi’s drifting machine in CSR 2. After retexturing and rerendering the car to best replicate its iconic real world appearance, we added smoke effects and simulation as well as lighting to add drama and excitement to the scene.
We love the way the smoke interacts with the light as the Hoonitron drifts around the car park and Zynga agreed, telling us the campaign had been a big success and that they were blown away by what we produced.
